Meet Hamburgirl Z, possibly Japan's weirdest idol group of all time
If you love your burgers and you love your Japanese idol groups, then this new group out of Japan was created by the heavens just for you. Hamburgirl Z, an idol group consisting of fifteen young girls, sings and dances only about burgers. And not only that, but every single one of the girls represents a different ingredient!
There are countless odd music group concepts, but this new idol group from the island of Awajishima just might take the cake. Or actually, take the burger. Hamburgirl Z (Z pronounced Zeta), is an idol group originally formed to promote hamburgers. Yes, you read that correctly. Hamburgers. The producer of this awesome group, Shintao Yabu, is also the head of the Nishi Nihon Hamburger Kyoukai, otherwise known as the West Japan Hamburger Association. He created Awajishima Hamburgirl in 2013 to spread, through cute adolescent song and dance, the deliciousness of local burgers. Starting with only three members, the group added more girls along the way, changed their name to Hamburgirl Z, and now boasts fifteen idols, each and every one of them representing a certain ingredient. There's beef, lettuce, egg, tomato, Awajishima fish, Awajishima chicken, two Awajishima onions, pork/bacon, pickles, avocado, pineapple, mushroom, green pepper, and eggplant. What an awesome group.
According to one of the ingredients, "All Humburgirl Z songs are full of love for hamburgers. We want to have people of all generations interested in hamburgers. We truly love hamburgers, and we want everyone else to love them too.”
I do love hamburgers. And I do love Japan.
