I’ve fallen behind when it comes to posting the collections of bizarre Japanese TV commercials, so I’ll mix them in among the sumo reports (that way, the non-sports-minded have something interesting to see, too)!
* “Young Man” is the Japanese title for The Village People’s disco classic, “Y.M.C.A.” I first discovered this in a Fuji City karaoke bar, and my life has never been the same. May this commercial have the same effect on all of you.
* Robo-Cat makes a surprisingly realistic-yet-effective maneki-neko.
* I don’t generally eat McDonalds, but I want the toys from the Super Mario Happy Set!
