abstr^ct:groove announces this black cinematic pearl for Yamaha.
"The Dark Side of Japan" is a film conceived with the DLVBBDO team, featuring the new revolutionary concept sport bike Yamaha MT-09.
We imagined the city of Tokyo as a dark lady, who transforms her face at dusk, showing her most cryptic and ambiguous side.
Enjoy the Dark Side of riding!
