public display of ignorance ahead,proceed with caution: was DISPLAY full pv ever released or did they pulled another Lovefool on us?

I haven’t talked about this in ~public light~ because a.) it could still happen and b.) some of it isn’t really supposed to be known to the public / non P.T.A. members, but I’ll talk about it anyway (worst that could happen would be Perfume staff tell me off).

P.T.A. members who keep up with the videos will know that in the DISPLAY making of / behind the scenes videos they call it a wrap after the final pose we see in DISPLAY’s short PV and there’s nothing shown in the shooting that we haven’t seen.

On top of that, we all know that DISPLAY was really only given a PV for Panasonic’s benefit and that the short version was shipped out across the globe with Panasonic TVs. Given that Cling Cling is already out with the short version and that the short version is available in 4K on Panasonic’s official website, it’s clear that there’s no real monetary benefit to them releasing a full DISPLAY PV. At least not for a while. But I have a feeling if there was a full version we’d know already (and they wouldn’t have published the making of videos this far ahead of time).

On the contrary Seki-san (Kazuaki Seki, long time director of Perfume PVs and director of DISPLAY) was asked a while back by a twitter user if there was going to be a full version:

@kosei_pd DISPLAYってshort verってことはフルもあるってことですか?
"DISPLAY" has a "short version" but is there a full version too?

To which Seki replied

@KasuakiSeki
んーどうでしょう~
Hmm, I wonder~

That isn’t really a great translation of his reply but he basically neither said yes or no. So this is the only thing that suggests otherwise.

But who knows, maybe they’ll pull a full DISPLAY PV out of their butts for the next album by some magic. I’d sure as hell watch it.

TL;DR: Short answer - no, long answer - maybe but no.
