The Japanese do it again

It could also be Chinese; who’s to say. But check out this biking action – I’d love to be able to do that! I couldn’t help but wonder what that guy’s elbows and knees must look like though…

Found on A Welsh View.

Re-enacting computer games

One wonders where they find each other; but they do, and this is what they do:
Space Invaders:

Pong:

Pole Position:

And I love this (Japanese again): Matrix Ping Pong!

The dramatic praire dog…

Or chipmunk – as he was called before– phenomenon is taking on a life of its own: check out his website with loads of spoofs. You can even get a Dramatic Praire Dog T-shirt!

And here’s how it all started: it was those Japanese again… Don’t watch if you want the myth to be busted.

More Japanese craziness

They’re not only ahead in mobile phone technology, the videos you can find about them defy anything I’ve ever seen (also check out the end of my post about YouTube going local).

The latest I discovered: MXC, a dubbed version of the Japanese Takeshi’s Castle, a computer-game-like show featuring things like the Rotating Surfboard Death, trying to score a touchdown against opponents in giant suits, running up a steep slope with big balls rolling down at you… I like adventures but not sure I’d want to take part in this…

Thanks to Frankschoice for finding.

Enjoy!

YouTube goes local

It was announced yesterday that YouTube will be launching localized sites in Brazil, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, UK, and the U.S.. Main goal is ‘to promote access’.

I can’t help but wonder if this will do the service good; there is certainly something to say for localized site controls, but won’t the content get diluted over the different sites? And won’t it become hard to watch all that great Japanese stuff?
