GACKT is making Let’s Play videos now for Nestle Japan

gackt-game-centerGACKT is a rather enigmatic man, considered by many as an icon of J-Rock music and more particularly the Visual Kei genre. That being said, it is rather odd that he has decided to launch a video series on youtube called GACKT’s Game Center, a series of Let’s Play videos featuring GACKT playing video-games while drinking fine wine besides his Lamborghini. Then again, maybe that isn’t odd at all for a man like GACKT.

The series has launched its first episode which has GACKT stumbling his way through Mega Man 2, stone-faced and confused as all hell. It is definitely interesting to see GACKT kicking back and chilling out with some games and according to Famitsu he will be playing 5-10 games a month as part of GACKT’s Game Center.

Perhaps the strangest part of this news is that his show GACKT’s Game Center is part of a promotion for Nestle, for some reason. But unless we want another Yellow Fried Chickenz incident it’s probably best not to ask too many questions.

You can check out the first episode of GACKT’s Game Center below. Prepare the get GACKT’d by the only man who knows how to GACKT people, GACKT!

Flip flop slipperdy snap, want to hear a puzzle slap? Who hoot hoots like a shoe in the night, what beetleborgs do is quite a fright. You can be Scooby Doo and eat your pie too but I'm just having some fun being Halliday, dude.


  1. Such a weird promotion by Nestle. Let’s plays are huge, but I didn’t expect to see an unrelated corporation start doing them!

      Yeah it doesn’t exactly make sense…

    This is sooo funny. Who doesn’t want to work playing videogames?

    • Frank Inglese says

      He’s an eccentric dood, Nestle picked the right guy to make an impact.

    Do you guys know anything about Gackt? He’s far from “eccentric”. He’s a very wise businessman. I’m sure Nestlé is paying him a boatload of money for this campaign, and that’s just for putting his face on the deal. It’s just another day at work for him. It was filmed inside his house, so he can do what he wants there… He can look bored, suck at playing the stupid games, wear his shades, drink wine… Who cares! He’s GACKT for gods sake! He’s an underrated musical genius, the best singer in the world, and a fabulous actor! And yes, I’m a fan girl!
    Happy Birthday, GACKT!!!
