Underground Hero : Love To Hate Me
Luke Huxham, the Japan-based videographer has captured some amazing parts of the Japanese automotive culture in his brilliant documentaries. In his latest film, he introduces us to Shinichi Moroboshi-san, a Japanese gangster who has quite the extravagant lifestyle and automobile, but he doesn’t care what you or anyone else thinks.
Surrounded with a bit of mystery when it comes to his “job”, and referring to being arrested before, we’re led to believe that Morohoshi-san doesn’t always make his money ethically. Living in Kabukicho, Tokyo’s entertainment district, he has quite the entourage of people looking out for him, including the Bosozoku bike gang that also has little disregard for others.
Morohoshi-san’s passion for cars and Lamborghini’s to be specific began when he had his first experience with a Countach at age 17. Since then, he’s been in the pursuit of owning an Italian bull. He now drives a Lamborghini Diablo GT decked out with all sorts of neon lights flashing in the midnight along city streets, accompanied by his Bosozoku and other supercars.
You probably won’t like him as a person, but he really doesn’t care.
