KAT-TUN-White PV preview

With less than 2 weeks until the release of KAT-TUN's new single, White, JE continues to string us along only now releasing the PV preview. Less than 2 weeks until the release date and we haven't even heard the full rip of the song. Us fans might hate waiting this long, but apparently this marketing works as KAT-TUN continues to sell great. Not as good as with Jin though. But they still usually outsell my beloved NEWS.

I'm excited to see that this PV has some sort of storyline. I would be so angry if we had another mess like Ultimate Wheels. But there's really not much going on the PV. Of course the PV has the pretty much standard close-up scenes. You can't really make a PV without them. But what's with Ueda wearing a hat yet again? Does he miss Jin that much that he feels the need to take over Jin's "member that wears a fedora" position? Other than that in the close-ups Koki and Kame are looking fine as usual.
The PV also shows them walking dramatically across what looks like a ship yard. Maybe it's the awful quality or maybe I'm blind, but where they are walking, to me, totally looks exactly like the place where they shot their 2010-2011 calendar. I'll have to wait for the full PV of course to be absolutely certain.
The PV also shows random out of place cheerleaders who serve no purpose in the PV. And they are dancing on a football field. A for a brief second I had flashbacks of horrible H!P PVs. Campus Life ~Umarete Kite Yokatta~ and Seishun Collection, PVs better left forgotten.
The rest of the PV preview if full of them randomly hanging out on top of a roof, as people usually do. I don't know any college that lets you sit on the roof, but apparently you can in Japan. And it also shows the members of KAT-TUN walking through the school. And I'm going to sit here and pretend that the entire White PV isn't a complete and blatant rip off of C-ute's Campus Life ~Umarete Kite Yokatta~ PV. But it totally is. I am extremely disappointed by the obvious similarities of the two PVs.
