As previously announced, the cover jacket and PV for FUNKY MONKEY BABYS' last single "Arigatou" featured comedian Akashiya Sanma, and recently, the PV has been revealed on Dreamusic' official YouTube channel.

The PV is set on the last graduation day at a junior high school that is about to be closed down due to depopulation. Sanma plays the teacher "Akashi-sensei" who will retire on the same day as the graduation and send off his last students. When he looks back on his working days as a teacher, there were three unforgettable students. The memory of the graduation day of those three students in the past and today's graduation are overlapping in his mind, and the three students appear to see Akashi-sensei's last day as a teacher.

The members of FUNKY MONKEY BABYS commented, "Sanma-san's last smile. I felt that it explained everything." (Funky Kato) "I was moved to tears by the PV. Sanma-san's acting was just amazing." (Mon-kichi) "Akashiya-sensei did it quiet and simple, but strong. The power of a person just comes straight to my heart. Thank you very much!" (DJ Chemical)

According to Funky Kato's blog posted on the 8th, Sanma appeared on the cover jacket and PV for free as he made the offer himself. In the blog post, Funky Kato wrote, "His acting for the PV was really amazing, and he graced the song 'Arigatou' even more movingly. I hope this song will reach to as many as people possible."

FUNKY MONKEY BABYS' last single "Arigatou" is set for release on February 27th. (*The PV is available for a limited time, so make sure to check it now!)
