Mmmmm, I approve of Japanese ‘mice’.


#3

Call me a sick s.o.b., but I was kind of hoping the cat would hook one of those girls out of the hole, then run off screen, tiny struggling Japanese girl firmly clamped in its jaws.


#4

Well I at least one to try one of the laptops now.


#5

I love the poopmoji logo! it clearly says that our laptops aren’t shit, they are The Shit!
(cleans glasses) oh, wait a second…


#6

Whatever it is they’re selling, I’m buying.


#7

Adorable!

The group is “Nogizaka 46” (乃木坂46) if anyone is interested.

EDIT: more videos here


#8

Ah, there is my daily dose of “Oh, Japan…”.


#9

Yeah, I always think japanese pop groups are adorable, and i sometimes secretly like the music…

until i remember they no longer own their own lives for x number of years, and the crazy contracts surrounding these groups.

then i usually ponder what type of family signs away their daughter to such pr machines, then i half shrug it off a cultural thing i probably just don’t understand and our “boy bands” are really probably just as bad in their own way.

:musical_note: i, i, i’ve got, i’ve got mixed feelings, i’ve got mixed feelings… :musical_note:

I think I’ll show this to our office cat. See what he thinks.

#12

I was thinking more of the cat getting its paw caught in a mouse trap.


#13

There’s actually a 9 minute behind-the-scenes video of this commercial.


#14

I need more Japanese ‘mice’ in my life. :wink:


#15

Unusual in what way?

(Psst, @Akimbo_NOT, they’re really humans in costumes.)


#16

well, now i just need 4 friends willing to join me, and my contest-winning halloween costume idea for this year is sorted.


#17

Right?

It’s Japanese, so it must be unusual!


#18

I don’t see what’s so unusual. If you’ve been to Japan at all you know that most rural homes are infested by tiny schoolgirls. They’re cute until they chew up your wiring.


#19

Don’t forget the cat.


#20

That’s conservative for Japan. Do I have to post Kyary Pamyu Pamyu again?


I am afraid
