"Selling garage music to Japan is water off a ducks beak mate"

A film based on the mockumentary series People Just Do Nothing has begun production in Japan.

The show, which began in 2014 and follows the collective Kurupt FM, shared its fifth and final season last year.

The new film, entitled People Just Do Nothing: Big In Japan, will be released in August 2020.

A synopsis of the film reads: “Since the end of their pirate radio station, life has been quiet for the Kurupt FM boys, but everything is about to change. News reaches them that one of their songs has been used on a popular game show in Japan. They’ve made it! Their music is reaching hundreds of thousands of people! It’s finally time for them to enjoy the fame and fortune that they’ve always known they deserved.

“Chabuddy G steps excitedly back into his management role as Grindah, Beats, Steves and Decoy begin their journey to international stardom… But is Japan really ready for Kurupt FM?”

Speaking of the film, MC Grindah says: Japan is the most advanced city in the world so it makes perfect sense that they would recognise our lyrical talent. We can’t wait to go over there and completely destroy the music scene. In a good way.

Chabuddy G adds: “You know me, I can sell anything mate. Ice to an Eskimo, halal meat to a racist vegan… selling garage music to Japan is water off a ducks beak mate.”
