Scenes from the music video for “Niji No Tsuzuki”

To commemorate our 140th anniversary, the Nippon Paint Group’s theme song “Niji No Tsuzuki” was written by Masayoshi Yamazaki to serve as a tool to deepen communications among employees as well as with customers.
The theme of the music video, which was taken from the song’s title, is “Sing with a rainbow (niji)”. The video includes scenes of Masayoshi Yamazaki painting furniture and other items by using colorful paints like a rainbow.
Two types of paints are used in the music video: STYLE DIY paint and Water Based Fresh Wide. In the completed music video, Masayoshi Yamazaki is shown absorbed in and enjoying painting. These scenes exude a sense of power that will make viewers want to take on a challenge of their own.

[Comment from Masayoshi Yamazaki]
“I often use wood in my DIY projects so I have used coatings, such as oil, however, this is the first time I used paint. There was an abundant selection of colors and it took a lot of thinking to choose colors of a rainbow gradation. The paints (STYLE DIY paint) came with a color palette so it was convenient to use. As it was my first time painting, I forgot how old I was and just enjoyed playing around.”
