So…okay. Takashi Murakami. Kirsten Dunst. McG. Put them together, and what do you get?


“Akihabara Majokko Princess,” of course! Murakami collaborated with Charlie’s Angels/Terminator: Salvation director McG to direct what sure looks and sounds like a weird little film of Dunst prancing through Tokyo streets in anime garb while singing “I’m Turning Japanese.” This quirky one-off project is featured in the final room of the recent “Pop Life” exhibition at the Tate Modern in London.

Check the Wall Street Journal article for more details on how this whole thing came to fruition (McG and Murakami share a manager, for one), and let’s hope some footage pops up online in the near future. Until then, click play above and let your imagination run with it.
