Oh Japan, How I love you!

By Skylers Dad from Some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps.

What would we do without our friends from the land of the "no holds barred" commercials? If you ever had a wacky idea that seemed like it would never fly, I am sure there is an agency in Asia that is more than willing to let their freak flag fly!

Witness the following examples:

Surprising Japanese Egg Toy - Watch more Funny Videos

Crazy Japanese Commercial - Watch more Funny Videos

Uh yeah... Do you think sex sells a bit over there?

But even better is their 21st century special effects when it comes to their cartoon characters on TV! This is the opening for the Japanese version of Spiderman. Of course they have to include some sort of transformer robot thing that has absolutely no connection to Spiderman, but it's all win!

oh shit, I put the damn eggs in the fridge

and now they won't stretch

thought they were soy substitues!

Scope said...

@ Lynette - They were "substitutes" all right.

What were they even selling in that second commercial? What ever she was on, I'm not sure I want any.

And that robot looked like the love child of Optimus Prime and the 5 lion Voltron.

@Lynette: Never ever chill your egg!

@Scope: No idea what the product was in the second one, but it doesn't seem to matter in Japan!

Judging from the Asian men I've dated, they should put all their eggs into one basket.
