This week ( before the Launch party of tokyo.japantimes in fact) I gone to see him in Akasaka after his interview with TBS and one thing funny was that when he move to make a video with a brezilian TV crew near the TBS Building, I heard some poeple saying in french
"hey look it s Danny Choo.. he is so cool making dancing video! come come.. let see what he will do" then I heard in English minutes latter " wow Tokyo tropper in real! look daddy! "

I think that it is the best proof of his notoriety.. when you got recognize on the street by various people, you know you are famous ^^
