weird or funny Japanese videos

Sat Apr 08, 2017 7:12 pm

A colleague at work let me know about this weird Japanese video.

Take Anything You Want - Spare Me My Life

After watching that, I stumbled across this:
I have a bad case of Diarrhea

Neither of us had any idea where it came from but I found http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/take-anything-you-want. No idea how accurate it is.

The latter I first saw on the TV show "World's Dumbest..." I call it the "Official Colonoscopy Prep Song" :lol:

Japanese car commercials definitely fall into the categories of "weird" and/or "funny."

American celebrity endorsements are HUGE in Japan. That's the only way to explain why Hino would choose Diane Lane to endorse a series of commercial trucks:

My favorite series of funny Japan commercials are not for cars, but for a drink. Tommy Lee Jones plays an alien sent to investigate Earth and study its inhabitants, and ends up in Japan. The commercials are actually a parody of certain aspects of Japanese society:

Woah! That one was errr... unusual. I've never seen a car commercial like that before.
