Back to School

YouTube's 360 degree technology is like Google Street View for movies and the latest music video from idol unit Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders, "Kamu to Funyan," puts you right in the middle of a Japanese classroom. Don't be anti-social and stare at the wall, rotate the camera around so you can watch the girls go nyan-nyan-nyan from any angle.
