I Do NOT Understand the Japanese

Friday, April 13, 2007

Ok, I have read quite a bit about pre/WWII stuff, so I'm not talking about Imperial Japan, I'm talking about modern Japan.

I recently read a hot bestseller (translated): Kafka on The Shore. It was strange, but fifteen times the books of the late and unlamented Kurt Vonnegut. Anyway, I think I got around 40% of the cultural stereo-types/violations, which is probably 2x what I really got.

So this advertisement for the Japanese Naval Self Defense Force kinda works for me.

I can get past the whole self-defense thing and the Power Ranger moves.

But this one just amazes me cold:

If the Village People moved to Japan and made videos.....
