Japanese pop group Kat-Tun is swarmed by fans during the August 2005 Nisei Week Grand Parade in Little Tokyo. The singers were featured in the annual parade, but event officials and police were caught entirely off guard by the throngs of screaming young women who descended upon the car in which the stars were riding. The frenzied mob delayed the parade, causing Kat-Tun to be pulled out before reaching the end of the route.
