Basically, both parts of February’s issue of Photoshigenic were dedicated to Tegoshi. And let me tell you they are priceless. I’ve been sitting on these treasures long enough so now this is my gift to you…Daringly, he comes up with one prank after another.
I got an instant camera from a friend as a birthday present (but it’s an amazing one where you can change lenses) so I was snapping away during the “Hikari no Shizuku” filming. So, this person, Tegoshi Yuya’s pranks towards Koyama-san now surpass the level of pranks. The day of filming he also took Koyama-san’s clutch bag when he wasn’t there and put it in the fridge. (by the way, the man himself stubbornly claims he didn’t do it but… how true is that?) On top of that, the clutch bag had a lot of metal parts. They’re all frozen. Also he sent a ton of stamps (apparently, it was over 300), and brought Koyama-san’s personal bag to the filming site. Finally, he put his phone into his underwear (next to the skin…) so he did some impressive pranks. I’m saying they’re too daring!!! But I’m sorry, Koyama… I laughed a lot… actually, even the victim Koyama-san while shouting “Whyyyyy?” looked kind of pleased. And thus, later on I’ll introduce you to the latest and the funniest prank.The dance of ripped underwear
This happened during the free time at Best Artist. Koyama-san as always came after his live broadcast ended. Next to him Tegoshi Yuya was changing. Once he was down to just underwear, instead of putting on clothes, he started doing an odd dance. Huh? You ask “why?”? I can’t take that question. That’s just the kind of man he is. While he was doing that, apparently having some kind of business, Koyama-san left the dressing room. Yet, Tegoshi continued dancing. The intensity of the dance kept increasing and so came a moment when I thought he might be slipping into madness. And then… R-r-i-i-p-p! …what was that weird sound? …Though rather than saying it was a weird sound, I can also say it’s the funniest sound in the world. I looked up to confirm and was once again struck by the sight of it. I nearly ripped my belly. Almost died of laughter… We had to go on air soon though. There was no other option but to send the manager to buy new underwear. He put the new underwear on and the one he tore… yes, you can imagine what happened next, right? The torn used underwear Tegoshi-san threw into Koyama-san’s clutch bag. And zipped it. He was waiting to find out when Koyama-san will notice. Koyama returned, we went to perform, we got back… and he went home without having noticed. He only found out the next day before he had to go to “every” so nobody saw his reaction!! I really feel sorry for him but I’m thankful for always making me laugh!!!
