Samoku Ona Wata


I found this extraordinary video over at sonikmatter.com, my favorite music website on the known Internet.

Its grand panjandrum and majordomo (arigato — but I digress) clifyt, who somehow finds time to also serve as my Indianapolis, Indiana correspondent, introduced it as follows in his January 31, 2008 post:

    Video: Samoku Ona Wata

    From the bizarre video collection here at Sonik, we present "Smoke on the Water" played with traditional instruments and sung in Japanese. Brought to you by some random Russian site, which means if you are running Windows you better watch out in case one of the advertisements has a viral payload! Thanks go out to our international correspondents who are always on the lookout for videos like this (and for the warning about security!!!)

Thank you, Clifty, for your response on viral avoidance.

I asked my friend about this as well...they claim that you should NEVER click on advertisements in russian. And if your spyware / virus software is up-to-date, you should have no problems.

Never agree to allow any of these things to install anything. You have Flash? That should be good enough...you have all you need to do to watch this. Anything else? Click DO NOT INSTALL.

Beyond that, stick with Firefox. It is far less likely that you will get hit with an attack that would take out Internet Explorer if you are using it.

Who knows...I use to be a Windows programmer...I use solely Mac at this point because I'd rather just do my work than have to play computer mechanic every 10 minutes. But all that is exactly what I'd do....

And how, pray tell, does one know if there is a virus prior to viewing?
