Er, sorry, but is it my ears gone wrong, or am I hearing two voices in that song? One is Jay and the other is... Xiao Mai? (very deaf person here.. got the flu currently, so pls excuse this.)

Judging by the comments over there, this is it! I have an account, but my translations are nowhere near as good Kelvin's. From what I hear, the lyrics are really funny.  I can't wait to read the English translation for this one.

杰倫:倒數計時~~今天公佈

Jay: countdown~~it will be revealed today

杰倫:說好要讓大家嚇瘋跟笑瘋,首先會嚇瘋的原因有1拿自己旗下藝人的卡拉即興創作不同旋律,應該目前為止沒有一家唱片公司的老闆做過2唱了一個無關緊要的人,代表完全不求商業考量3對嘴的那個人不是原唱,原唱唱的是對嘴的那個人...很深奧吧?

Jay: I told you I'd shock you and make you smile like crazy, firstly the reason why it will give people a shock 1. using an artist under his own label's kala to create a unique melody, no record company boss has done such a thing before 2. singing about an insignificant person, it represents that it's not about commercial value at all 3. that person lip syncing is not the original singer, the original singer is that person lip syncing...it's very deep right?

杰倫:接下來笑瘋的原因我就不需多說了,除非你的幽默感有點問題,哈哈在我個人專輯之前先讓大家嚐點小麥...不,是小菜

Jay: Now the thing that will make you smile like crazy, I don't need to say any more, unless you have something wrong with your sense of humour, haha before my album I'll let everyone try a bit of Xiao Mai (wheat)....no, it's Xiao Cai (a small dish)

He's right about that. It's kind of funny, when you think about it. The song is supposed to be sung by Xiao Mai (according to lyrics), but Jay sings it and Xiao Mai lip-syncs it in MV. Interesting concept.

(No, Jay, there's nothing wrong with our sense of humour - we all agree it's funny. ;))

Thank you, kelvin!

Thanks for posting, Shammy12!

Anyway, for those who wanna know what Jay said at this event for his friend, Taiwanese marathoner Kevin Lin:

At 0:24, Jay says he hopes his new song will accompany Lin as he runs. As he (Jay) has a 'weak body full of illnesses' (ti ruo duo bing)(Jay's self-deprecating humour there!) and can't accompany Kevin personally on the route, at least his music will be there.
The song will be like Nunchuks with a strong rhythm and electric guitars (let's hope there's no autotune!) and Jay feels it's a song which will fire people up with enthusiasm (zhen fen ren xin)

At 0:44, that's when Jay mentions July for his new album.

Narrator then mentions Jay's recent work in USA (TGH and Kobe commercial) and says Jay's breaking into overseas market.
At 1:02. Jay says over the years, he has made many new friends and he has accomplished stuff that he never thought he would. As such, he wants to make good use of the opportunity now, whilst he has some 'influence', to do good things. :)

umm everyione's gonna kill me here but I dislike this song. The autotune is HORRIBLE. It really does seem like Jay became a huge fan of autotune and this makes me horrified that his new album will be be full of it....

The video itself is nice but is also kind of a hidden advertising place for McDonalds and Phantaci.

Omg, Teemeah, I thought I was the only one here who felt that way. The song sounds like it was recorded in pronto time (you know how busy he is) hence the autotune. And the unashamed plugging of the Phantaci label is kinda like... tasteless.. and I doubt it was Jay's idea to put that in.  And the mv... Xiao Mai doesn't handle facial expressions very well, he's a dancer, not an actor/musician. Thank goodness this mv was made just for fun.
 
Sorry, Jay fans..

You're right about that - I've read it was made in 4 hours.

It was Jay's idea, alright. It's his way of promoting the store and help his friends with it. *shrugs* I used to find it annoying, now I'm pretty much used to it and don't even mind.

Autotune I hate. Passionately. He better not put any more of it on the new album, otherwise I'll start revolution here. Asking JVR for English translation of their website will be nothing compared to that!  :icon_evil:  Please - no more autotune!
