The next-generation "5G" service which will be put into practical use in 2020 by NTT DoCoMo. This experimental project demonstrates its speed, capacity and low latency of “5G” technology. It was performed by “Perfume”, the group always being on the leading edge of techno pop. They have always been together on the stage since they formed the group. The three girls performed on different stages for the first time in 17 years. TOKYO, NY, LONDON. Connecting three places over 10,000 km apart from each other, the communications technology combines three respective performances into one without time lag.
Ten days before release, we posted banner ads online, outdoor ads at train stations in four popular Tokyo locations, and ads in train cars on 32 rail lines, and we informed the media in advance. On social media, we posted a countdown beginning one week beforehand to invite users to the project website. Starting at 9 p.m. on November 8, we streamed live on the project website.
Over 150,000 people watched the show live, while the archived footage reached 500,000 views only one week after release. It aired eight times on three popular Japanese informational TV programs, got coverage from over 100 online media outlets, appeared at the top of Japan's most viewed news web site, and stirred a huge response on social media.
