Gaki No - Again

Dead of Alive

More information about Gaki No:

Downtown (ダウンタウン) is a Japanese comedy duo (kombi) consisting of Hitoshi Matsumoto (松本人志) and Masatoshi Hamada (浜田雅功). Downtown is probably the most influential kombi to come from Yoshimoto Kōgyō, and is arguably the most popular kombi in Japan today. While best known for their stand-up act and their role as host of numerous Japanese variety shows (including the long running HEY! HEY! HEY! MUSIC CHAMP), they also occasionally perform in movies and television drama, and in the past have even released music singles. Starting out as a manzai unit from Hyōgo in 1983, it is now said that as a result of their massive popularity and the relative domination of their employer, Yoshimoto Kōgyō, the Kansai dialect (in which both performers usually speak) has come to be associated with Japanese comedy (owarai) as a whole.
