Yaguchi was made famous for her line «Sexy beam!» and the accompanying dance moves. Tsunku mentioned in an interview he had written demos of the song and played with the lyrics long before creating Morning Musume. He had intened «Sexy beam» to be «Oppai beam» (Booby beam).

For Morning Musume’s 23rd single «Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari», the other girls sing «Where is your sex appeal? Where is your real sexy beam? We’re still waiting to see it!» where Yaguchi answers «What! you can’t see it? Yikes!». 

Tsunku’s comments about the single:

January 26th, 2000. Here comes the 8th single by the 7 girls. May your spring start with love songs of Morning Musume!
