Music video

The music video for "Loop & Loop" was co-directed by Kazuyoshi Oku and Masafumi Gotoh.[3] The PV takes place within a classroom populated by four young boys. Over the course of the video, the students ride bikes, play jumprope, and pretend to be a band using brooms for guitars. All the while, they listen to headphones and lip-sync the lyrics to the song. In Eizō Sakuhinshū Vol. 1, it showed the boy at the beginning listening to CD called Romance (ロマンス) by Takamitsu Shibuyama (渋山貴光) (Takahiro Yamada's pseudonym) and at the end, it change with Loop & Loop's cover. However, they cut the both scenes in their official Youtube.
