This was from the Mecha2 Iketeru! SP: The AKB Sportsfest. Ninety-nine's Takashi Okamura told Minegishi: "Your hair has grown longer." When Rino Sashihara said "Ayame Gouriki", Minegishi started dancing the "propeller dance", the dance step during the chorus part of Gouriki's debut single "Tomodachi yori daiji na hito". Okamura liked it and kept looking at Minegishi when something happens and would say, "The hair is like Ayame Gouriki's", to cue her dancing.
After the broadcast, this drew a lot of positive reactions on the Internet: "It's been a while since I laughed out this much from a TV show", "I'm in tears from laughing so much", and "Minami Minegishi's Gouriki dance was so funny".
Minegishi also did this at AKB48's handshake event the next day, as Haruna Kojima uploaded Minegishi's Gouriki dance, complete with the same get-up and all on Instagram and has similarly drawn positive reactions. With Kintaro's "Flying Get" also becoming a hit a while back, people will now be paying attention to what will become of Minegishi's Gouriki dance.

Ayame Gouriki's video reaches 10 million views on YouTube thanks to Minegishi's spoof
Ayame Gouriki's debut song "Tomodachi yori daiji na hito" picked up heat once again, to which she rejoiced and said, "Is that really, really true!?".
The single which was released in July of this year is an up-tempo number dedicated to an all important person who is more than a "friend" to the singer. Thanks in part to the Mecha2 Iketeru special shown on the 16th where Minegishi imitated the "propeller dance", Gouriki's music video has now exceeded 10 million views on YouTube.
Gouriki's reaction to this feat was: "I'm really happy about this! Is that really, really true (lol)!?"
"The music video for the song 'Tomodachi yori daiji na hito' can only be played in Japan, but I'm really surprised that 10 million people in Japan have already seen it! This is all thanks to your support!", "I'll keep on working hard to bring smiles to your faces!"
