Bingo! is Japanese idol group AKB48's sixth single, and the fourth major single released through DefSTAR Records, on July 18, 2007.[1]

Promotion[edit]

"Bingo!"'s video clip was filmed by the same director filmed "Seifuku ga Jama o Suru", although the theme is totally different. All 46 members of AKB48 participated in the video clip, filmed in Onjuku, Chiba and Makuhari Messe.[2]

Each "Shokai Genteiban" (初回限定版 The first edition?) CD also includes 2 DVDs, one is video clip and the other is "Making of "Bingo!".[3]

Sony Music offered high resolution closeup portraits of the 18 Senbatsu members as wallpaper downloads on their website for the limited duration of 36 hours after the song’s release.[2]

Reception[edit]

Since many "Aitakatta" limited editions remained unsold, the Seifuku ga Jama wo Suru limited sets were produced in a smaller quantity, making it one of the rarer to find releases.[2] The single charted 5 weeks in the top 200 with the highest rank at #6, then-highest ever record for AKB48.[4] "Bingo!" sold 25,611 copies.
