Got the Monday Tuesday blues? It can’t possibly be as bad as the one that Matsumoto Hatoshi had. He was hit with pies for an entire day after losing a bet to his co-host on the show Gaki no Tsukai.
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.
If there’s one thing you don’t ever want to do is you don’t mess with Japan’s Yakuza bosses. That’s one lesson clearly illustrated in director Takeshi Kitano’s Outrage.
A couple of years ago these guys took YouTube by storm with Backstreet Boys’ cheesetacular anthem. We didn’t think it could get better, but leave it to Japanese technology to improve upon the original.
Up until now the most amazing magic trick we had seen involving a table was the old “tablecloth yank.” This Japanese magician with a penchant for Andy Warhol has changed everything.
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.
Pink Tentacle posted a gallery of Japanese concept cars from 1957 to 2009. Despite the weird doors, we like the 50s to 80s cars the most. The 90s on the other hand were the dark ages of concept cars.
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.
Leave it to the Japanese to create an electronic gadget which lets you humanize any object. These Nikodama eyeballs can be stuck on the face of anything to give it more personality.
You don’t want to mess with the police in Japan – even if you are the Dark Lord of the Sith. If we knew the force could be disrupted with a left hook, we would have tried that a long time ago.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything as fracking minimal gorgeous and cool as the Elekit Tube Amp, a vacuum tube hybrid stereo amplifier designed by Koichi Futatsumata for EK Japan.
We first got a peek at Gatchaman all the way back in 2008. Now it looks like the CGI Japanimation flick is finally nearing release. In this clip, the protagonists go up against a giant mecha-bug.
File this one under the “one-trick-pony” category. There’s something just so wrong it’s right about this ridiculous Japanese invention that’s perfect for cooling a watermelon, or maybe a head.
NSFW. The Japanese sure know how to make movies. Take, for instance, this bit of insanity, loaded with more blood, gore, decapitation, tentacles and boob-monsters than God of War III.
Don’t worry if you missed the life-size Gundam statue in Tokyo. It’s now in Shizuoka; you have until March 2011 to kiss, hug and attempt to take home this epic statue and his beam saber.
