AKB48 has a rather large member base. With one hundred and forty members ranging from their teens to their twenties it’s no wonder they rotate in and out. Recently they were the talk of the Olympic committee. It would seem they were recommended to sing the opening and closing ceremony. This is a big honor for anyone. You would think that all of Japan would be excited to have one of their most well-known and liked groups representing them.
However, Matsuko Deluxe, a celebrity in Japan, thinks AKB48 are an embarrassment to Japan. He went on record pleading for the Olympic Committee to pick someone else. I think it is safe to say he is not a fan. Watch the video below and see if you agree with Matsuko Deluxe. Other videos can be found here in the article I found the video in.
