Video directed by self-professed Sailor Moon fan MCG (Terminator Salvation)

Not-So-Daily Links of the Day: The Stylelist and Frisky blogs report that actress Kirsten Dunst appeared in Tokyo's Akihabara otaku shopping district in a sailor-suit costume and a blue wig for a video directed by MCG (Terminator Salvation). According to Ideeli, the video will be screened at an exhibition later this year at the Tate Modern in London.

Dunst voiced the title character in Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's Kiki's Delivery Service. MCG had said during a June advance screening of Terminator Salvation that he likes Sailor Moon and other Japanese anime and movies, and he added, "I love Akihabara!"

Update: According to eiga.com, the video shoot took place on August 27. The Moon Chase blog notes that Dunst revealed herself as a childhood Sailor Moon fan with memorabilia in her bedroom in a April 21, 1997 photospread in People magazine and with a June 2002 interview in Esquire magazine.
