Snowboarding school girls! In short skirts! And hotdoggers too!

These happy Japanese cosplayers (anime costume hobbyists) gather first for a synchronized dance-routine in the middle of Akihabara, Tokyo's nerd-mecca / electronic district. Dozens of them do their dance routine in the middle of the street before two cops stroll pass, causing hundreds to scatter. This kind of "reckless lawbreaking" is rather endearing. It's doubtful we'll ever see the headline; "Cosplay Dancers Besiege Japanese City!".

Okay, get ready - this is the oddest English lesson I have EVER seen in my life! Here are featured smiling, perky young Japanese women doing aerobic / cardio exercises, whilst at the same time repeating English phrases such as "TAKE ANYTHING YOU WANT", "SPARE ME MY LIFE" not to mention... "LET'S GO DUTCH!" Bizarre!

This Japanese Nike commercial features a swarm of Power Rangers chasing a man around Japan. This is very odd, but hilarious at the same time. I always thought they were only supposed to use their powers for defence?

Doesn't anyone ever sue in Japan? Obviously not because the TV shows keep pulling this stuff. In the video a Japanese actor gets an urgent call to perform in a fake show, via this crazy taxi. The passenger is scared s******* as the insane Japanese taxi driver starts breaking through gates and driving on two wheels. Explosions come out of nowhere and the passenger door falls off. The funniest part is at the end when, after the taxi has rolled over, the driver nonchantly asks for the fare.

This next one is an all time classic. Local males are lured into a fake spa (onsen) at a Japanese ski resort. The massage chairs are, however, not what they seem! If you don't want to watch the whole things you MUST see the last poor hapless soul.
