SMAP becomes a trending topic on Twitter thanks to Justin Bieber’s tweet

Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber met one of Japan’s top idol groups, SMAP, on May 18th, during the filming of an episode of “SMAPxSMAP“.

Afterwards, Bieber tweeted “SMAP SMAP SMAP SMAP SMAP SMAP….SMAP” three times on his Twitter account. The pop singer has over 9 million followers on Twitter and the term “SMAP SMAP” soon became a trending word in the US. Although some of those who re-tweeted SMAP probably have no idea what it stands for, it’s good to see the veteran group getting some attention outside of Japan.

You can watch Bieber and the members of SMAP interact on the May 30th episode of “SMAPxSMAP”. The episode wiill also feature actor Mukai Osamu in the detective drama, “THE BUDDY“, and actress Takashima Reiko, comedian Gekidan Hitori, and others in the “Bistro SMAP” segment.

lol I can totally see a bunch of young teens being like "why is he saying 'SMAP'? W/e it must be awesome!"

Hopefully SOME of them actually look up what it could be and see the awesome =P.

I saw this when it was trending and I was really excited :D I'm not a Bieber fan at all, but I do have respect for him. Can't wait to see this episode!
worthelle 19th-May-2011 05:36 pm (UTC)
yeah, me too. It's really hilarious reading the other tweets about it, like,
"What the hell does SMAP means?" ahaha.

some even made their own meaning for it like,
"Selena My Adorable Princess"

I'm just glad I know them, so I don't look so stupid like them[though I can't blame them anyway, Hahaha]

They probably came up with names that make more sense than Sports Music Assemble People, lol.

Most of the names for Johnny's groups make no sense... Not that music group names in general are much better.

Sad that it takes Bieber to get SMAP more worldwide attention. But YAY XD I don't know how I feel about him going on SMAP cuz that means a collaboration and... and........

miuratenshi 19th-May-2011 04:50 pm (UTC)
LOL I was so irritated yesterday at the bajillion tweets asking what SMAP was. People were equating it with swag, Selena, and Taylor Swift and I was like "doesn't anyone know how to Google or read the tweets in the TT?".

lovebum4life 19th-May-2011 05:47 pm (UTC)
SMAP meeting Michael Jackson was just EPIC! I rewatched that like thirty times because it was soo cute XD
kawaii_beela 19th-May-2011 07:36 pm (UTC)
that was just amazing!! i love how they were so shocked and nakai just kept saying "MICHAEL JACKSON?" and kimura was like "you went up to michael jackson and said "MICHAEL JACKSON?" hahah and michael wrote Takai instead of Nakai XD hahaha
brucelynn 19th-May-2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
I kknnooowww lol

it was so cute, when Kimura threw the peace sign back at Michael in amazment, and when they escorted him out the building I was laughing so hard.

One thing I remember is Kimura's t-shirt that said "We are not fighting we are just dancing" lol
