Recently my wife watches a SMAP's DVD every day which was released on Decmber 8. The DVD is drawn from "We are SMAP! 2010 SMAP CONCERT TOUR" in this summer. She went to the first day of the tour at Tokyo Dome.

Though I haven't watched it carefully, I found it amusing that one member of SMAP, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, sang "Kaette Kita Yopparai (Drunkard Returns)", which is a 60's hit song by The Folk Crusaders and is very popular in Japan.

Last year he was found drunk and naked in a public park in Tokyo, and yelled "what's wrong with being naked" at the police who were called by residents near the park. He was arrested and the incident caused his suspension from the group and appearing on TV for a few month.

During the introduction of the comic song, he knelt down on the stage, touching his forehead on the floor. I think the "dogeza" action means his gratitude for the other members of SMAP and fans who worried about him very much last year.
