Kazuya Kamenashi’s first back flip in years

Dressed up in a men’s suit, KAT-TUN’s Kazuya Kamenashi (24) performed his first backflip in two years for his latest commercial, reports Oricon.

The singer has been chosen to represent “3D Slim” suits, a new line of men’s suits made by AOKI.

The commercial, which goes on air in Japan on October 1, starts with Kamenashi in a room scattered with threads of red laser beams.  As the lasers move around Kamenashi performs a series of backflips and acrobatics to avoid them, showing the suit’s flexibility.  It ends with Kamenashi landing on his feet and making a signature pose.

It has been reported that Kamenashi was nervous about whether he was up to scratch with his dance moves.

“I think the last time I did a back flip was two years ago.  I’ll just have to give it a go,” he said.

Luckily the singer managed to get it right on his first try, and was reported to have had a huge smile on his face afterwards.

In a press release issued by AOKI yesterday, Kamenashi talked about how he felt going into the shoot.

“Filming was really fun.  A lot of the scenes needed me to do physically-demanding moves so in the beginning I wasn’t too confident with whether I could do it in a suit.  But when I moved around in the 3D Slim suit, it made moving around very easy so there weren’t many problems during shooting,” he said.
