Asian Arert, Motherfuckers!
It's been awhile since I've gotten around to doing an Asian Arert. I'm going to make up for that void by overloading your senses with a super-ultra-happy-fun mega post here chock full 'o' fishy Asian goodness.
The Girl sent me a bunch of You Tube videos and threatened me with grievous bodily harm if I didn't get 'em up here. Looking over these I realized that the Japanese advertising culture is exactly what American advertising would have looked like back in the 1950s if everyone in the industry was whacked out on lysergic acid diethylamide. It's some good stuff, to be sure.

If you wanna find some wacky-ass commercials type "pretz" into the You Tube search box. This one's my favorite.
And to top it all off, I present the best footage in the history of television (as seen on Countdown with Keith Olbermann):
Wow, watching all those Asian videos made me hungry. I could really go for a sandwich right now.
