Google Chrome Promotion With Hatsune Miku

Like US Google featuring Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, Google Japan chose the most popular singer on Japanese web, virtual singing tool Hatsune Miku, a 61 seconds video which praises all involved creators.

The playing count does not move up from 309, which might be from Japanese word-play 3(=Mi) 9(=ku). You may check the stats of the video and see it is played heavily now in Japan.

Unofficial home ground of Hatsune Miku movement Nico Nico Douga, from where most of videos really come, does not appear in the video, probably because YouTube is a competitor of Nico Nico Douga in Japan.

” Hatsune Miku ” is a virtual singer who can sing any song that anybody composes.

It has made a massive impact on all creators through the web.
They, inspired by her songs, have published their original works
not only in the field of music, but in illustration, video,
CG, cosplay, live performance and dance.

Besides over 30,000 original tracks, many more works are
still being released over the web.

Feel the possibilities of the web through the social phenomenon caused by million craetors.

 Grasp the phrase I happen to be humming
 Spread secret words of the heart into the sky

 I want to tell you
 I want to give you
 Nodes of feelings forms a link
 Connecting everything. Connecting to everywhere

SEGA, and many creators and fans from all around the world.
