We’re currently in Tokyo for a few days, so there’s no better time to feature this hilarious bit of old Japanese TV in which they launched a series of car and truck tires down a ski ramp to see how far they would fly. We’re pretty sure this is how Katamari Damacy started.
George Kareman is looking for an acting gig. Unfortunately, all of his work has been in Japanese commercials, so he might have a bit of trouble selling his skills here in the states. Yes, we know this is probably fake, but it’s still funny.
It starts out like any other slightly awkward educational video, but this clip descends into utter madness the longer and longer you stick around through its 3-minute lesson. We’re using that “Galaxy” move the next time we eat out.
Genki Sudo and the well-attired members of Japan’s World Order come together for their latest music video, featuring yet another demonstration of their perfectly-synchronized dance moves.
(Spoilers) Trouble following the plot of Episode IV: A New Hope? Nope, didn’t think so. Perhaps Mika can help set the record straight with her slightly confused, yet charming explanation of Star Wars.
Did this behind-the-scenes-esque trailer for an absurdist comedy about a luchador named Escargot Man and a man in pajamas trapped in a magical room just change our Netflix queue? Yup.
When in doubt as to how to pull off a prank that scares the snot out of somebody, the good old fashioned creepy-girl-ghost-busting-through-the-wall remains a consistent crowd pleaser.
A group of unemployed samurai must help stop an evil Lord and save the country from the rule of tyranny in this martial arts epic. We didn’t know there was such a thing as unemployed samurai.
(NSFW: Language) Maybe it’s the fact that they’re not French, or maybe it’s the mohawks in place of facepaint – either way, Japan’s Gamarjobat guys are far more entertaining than Marcel Marceau.
Here we get a quick peek at the anime versions of Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine, and Professor X. It’s in Japanese, so we don’t know what they’re saying. Eventually coming to G4 – in English, we presume.
We’re really not sure what’s going on in this commercial for Japan’s Docomo mobile phone company, but it’s got Darth Vader in pretty much every scene, and that’s all that matters, right?
You’ve gotta hand it to the Japanese. They sure know how to make exploitation flicks. If you have a weak stomach, turn away. Otherwise, please enjoy the most ridiculous movie trailer you’ll see today.
The Japanese musical group World Order takes to the streets of the usually busting Tokyo, and does their best to take it down a peg and move at a slower pace. Except for that crazy part at the end.
We all have our memories of Spider-Man, whether the old “…does whatever a spider can” theme, the Sam Raimi blockbusters or even Spider-Pig. The Japanese have their own special memories.
We’re not sure if this is a presentation or a competition, or if this is just training before they venture into their extremely crowded cities. The amazing happens at the 1:10 mark.
We have no idea what this ad is marketing, but whatever it is we want to buy one just to support whoever it is that commissioned this ad. It’s safe for work, although there’s a belly kissing scene.
