I Love Japanese Stereotypes

I have written about ridiculous Asian stereotypes before. They always make me laugh. Always (in fact, the video from that link made me laugh, hard, again). The crazy Japanese are the ones that always perpetuate these crazy stereotypes with their shows and commercials. But these Fanta commercials may take the cake.



And I thought American Fanta commercials were crazy... Here's another Japanese commercial with no stereotypes just for good measure.

This could easily be your best video find ever. I laughed so hard I pooped myself a little bit.

Now I really really want Japanese Fanta. Thanks a lot.

I just was hoping someone would know what the hell that pirate thing was. I could figure out just about everything else, although if my readers are pooping themselves, I'm not sure I have much hope...I guess that means its a successful post though.

The pirate bit is a play on the game "Pop-up Pirate" by Tomy. You push swords into the barrel through holes; the one that makes the pirate pop out is random. You don't want to be the one to make the pirate pop.

I personally dig the second ad more.

I did not know that. Impressive.
