Fukudome HR crowd reaction videos

My favorite type of video on YouTube is the crowd reaction video: a short video from inside the ballpark of a great event.  You may get better pictures and accounts of the event on the field from the television coverage.  But you can't get a real sense of what it would have been like to BE THERE.

 

Some decent crowd shots of the Fukudome HR have already been posted on YouTube.

Here's the Fukudome HR from the LF lower deck, with the video starting immediately after the ball left the park:

Here it is from RF upper deck; this one's a bit better because you get the entire at bat.  Unfortunately, the filmer loses the picture in the pandemonium that followed the HR. The old faithful "Let’s go Cubbies [clap, clap, clap clap clap]" chant is clearly heard:

This one from the LF upper deck is my current favorite.  You get the entire at-bat and the entire reaction. You can clearly hear the "Foo-Koo-Dough-May [clap, clap, clap clap clap]" chant, which is what I heard on TV but worried I only hoped that I heard it. LF 1, RF 0 in the chant department:

I would love to hear from dragonsfanatic on chant suggestions for Dome. What did his fans chant in Japan? Can any original, Japanese-language Dome-related chants translate to 4 syllables to fit the rhythm of the great American "Let's go ____ ____" chant?

[Edit: It's a shame that we don't appear to be able to embed YouTube clips in FanPosts.  Unless it's just because I'm html-dumb, it appears to be the SB Nation party line that one may only post YouTube videos in the FanShots section, but without the context of a diary-type post.]
