Funky Ningyou: Japanese Girls “Popping”

I remember when I was a kid I used to go with my homies to Manhattan and “Pop” in public for donations. I couldn’t pop well so my duty was to carry the boom box and protect it with my life (-: But my friends were maniacs…I mean, they were really good. Mind you this was in the early 80’s and popping and break-dancing was all the rave.

So, today I come across this video of two Japanese girls popping and it reminded me so much of those good old days of making easy money dazzling people on the streets of New York.

They’re pretty good. They would have made a bundle in NY in the 80s. Hell, maybe even now.


PS: Ningyou means “doll” by the way

    Very good. This was called 'popping?' I never knew that. You say it was a way to make some easy money, but it look pretty hard to me. They really are cute, aren't they. Nice way to start a Friday at work.
