    I thought I’d be in for a treat when I saw Cirno (or anything else Touhou-related) on Boing Boing… but not this way. =\

    I CAME!!!

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and guess, based on Nicovideo’s videogame-friendly fanbase, that one of the things referenced by use of the ‘Aniki’ nickname is ‘Cho Aniki’, a scrolling shooter game with lots of camp visuals that’s been a popular joke in gamer circles for a while.

    The series mascots, Samson and Adon, are big beefcake dudes in thongs who shoot white beams out of their foreheads.

    I’m not sure that even the Japanese understand the Japanese at this point.

    That said, the video captures the complex eroticism of gay porn quite nicely. Kudos!

    if his lif3e story were made into a movie, instead of ” American Samurai” it would be called “American Salami”. or maybe “American Plumber: Laying Pipe”.

  6. Xopher says:

    Hmm. Well, that video definitely wouldn’t be safe for work where I work. It’s got naked people in it, albeit seen only from the back.

    7 posts about Japan on the front page, I’m starting to see a pattern.

    I’ve never before been so glad to be unaware of an obscure euphemism. “Dolphin Waxing”? The mind boggles.

    Video no longer available, but here is another link to a clip with Big Jim Slade and the Heiveinu Shalom Aleichem theme song:

    At eight inches, it ain’t just in Japan.

    (This is the second time I’ve gotten to use this joke now. Last time, it was commentary on how chubby Maru the Cat is.)

  11. RichSPK says:

    Wow, that video doesn’t help me understand the meme at all. Maybe it helps to be Japanese or gay?

  12. Brettspiel says:

    Um, yeah.. covering the dangly bits of two naked buff dudes having buttsecks does not make it work safe in corporate America.

  13. Teller says:

    Wasn’t my head supposed to asplode?

  14. greensteam says:

    I think i like pron better anyway…..

  15. dimmer says:

    “Waxing the dolphin” is slang for a very common, mostly inoffensive, practice. To surmise: it only needs one person, and has never hurt a dolphin.

  16. mdh says:

    That video… wow. Wow. Whaaaaaahw.

  17. joelogon says:

    I swear I can hear “Heiveinu Shalom Aleichem” in there (a.k.a. Big Jim Slade’s entrance music in Kentucky Fried Movie) — it’s really prominent around 1:20

  18. eustace says:

    Truly mindblowing. Japanese television can be so beautifully intense.
    Brute force visuals. Reminds me of this; the intense pace…

  19. Manooshi says:

    Forgive my ignorance, but is there any type of reason why some people spell porn as ‘pron’ on the internet? Is it a purposeful misspelling resultant of overly-accidental misspellings like ‘teh’ for the word ‘the’? Just curious…

  20. marcuscram says:

    Weird…I would love to sit down with the creators and get inside their heads and RichSPK, being gay doesn’t help

  21. gothicgeek says:

    The Video!

    hahahaaaaaa

    creepy or what?

    but thanks for posting it, i’m more puzzled than ever

    :)

  22. pAULbOWEN says:

    Please, I can’t be the only one who finds the juxtaposition of baby faces and wrestle/buttsex vidz icky? And, is it okay to say that the more I see and learn of Japan and the Japanese, the less I like them?

    @Manooshi, don’t know for sure but I always assumed pron and pr0n were spellings adopted to prevent the post being stopped by automod rude word detection software.

  23. Danny Choo says:

    @Manooshi,
    Its bad for Search Engine Optimization to have such words appear too many times on your site – affects page rank. Thus similar words or spellings are used – well thats just one reason ;-)

    Yes.

  25. Manooshi says:

    @ PaulBowen, Danny Choo, and SC Wolf:

    Thank you all so much for the clarification and links. It makes complete sense now. I’m glad to not be in the dark anymore about this purposeful misspelling.

    And thank you Danny for providing some [offbeat] glimpses at modern Japanese culture. It has been educational, to say the least.

    That clip melted my brain

    Japan’s weird?

    Ouch.

  29. stegodon says:

    Why the detached floating baby heads? Is that a kid milking a cow at 1:14? So many questions, but summarily – WTF?

    And I thought American internet memes were confusing O_O

    And here I was thinking that Ronald McDonald Insanity was the most absurdly insanely Japanese thing on YouTube.

  35. Jason Rizos says:

    Dang, removed? I wonder if some BoingBoing reader ratted them out for a violation of nudity policy?

    There is something truly artistic gained in the jarring combination of hyper-real electronic synth music, slapstick comedy, mock homo eroticism, genuine homo eroticism.

    “Japan’s weird, did you know that?”

    Also, I like the TV Tropes term “Widget Series” — “widget” as in “WJT,” for “Weird Japanese Thing.”

  39. mstoddard says:

    I love Japan.

  40. Bender says:

    Sort of like watching scrambled porn while listening to Alvin and the Chipmunks. People find all kinds of things entertaining, I guess.

  41. pipera says:

    I think you should blog more about your Good Smile Co. etc. not just COPY/PASTE from Wikipedia

  42. dreamshade says:

    Oh God, they remixed it with a Touhou Project video. Word of note – there are no fans more incomprehensible or peculiar in this world than Touhou fans.

  43. J France says:

    Oh dear God… Billy was part of the first bit of gay porn I ever got my hands on as a teenager, this brought back some really weird memories – and the Touhou Proj video made me feel funny in the pants…. which just made me feel funny.
