Japan’s DISH// Drops ‘Neko’ Video Series Inspired by TikTok Fans: Watch ‘Paper Dish’ Version

J-pop boy band DISH// shared the new animated music video for their hit song “Neko – THE FIRST TAKE ver. -” made in collaboration with fans on TikTok.

The new video that dropped Thursday (July 30) is the second in a trilogy inspired by the top three ideas selected from submissions to the DISH// challenge on the short-video platform.

The band decided to create three versions based on each creator’s idea so that viewers can enjoy the tune from different angles without being limited to a single point of view.

The new animated video follows the first one, “Line Art,” released Tuesday (July 28). Subtitled “Paper Dish,” video No. 2 creatively animates the images laid out in the song using simple illustrations drawn on and cut-outs crafted from paper plates, a familiar motif for the band’s fans, collectively called Slashers.

DISH//’s “Neko – THE FIRST TAKE ver. -” has reached 35 million streams in about three months since its release at the end of April, and over 60 million streams total including the original version.

The Aimyon-penned number, simply entitled “Neko” (“Cat”), had been a fan favorite since its release in 2017, but no official music video had been made. Watch lead vocalist Takumi Kitamura’s single-take performance of the song below:
