This seems to be the newest Japanese video going around on the internet (remember Yatta!). Probably a bit controversial, but it's made not to offend, but to show how funny american culture is when acted out by Japanese people.

The sadness kills the funny... And does "nigga" mean what I think it means?

Yep some of the funniest moments in Anime are when the main characters try to emulate American culture, Excel was even funnier because they had a lot of fun with the culture.

I think the ending makes up for the whole thing.

it was funny the first 30 times they said nigga, but just lost all meaning after the 60th time they said it.  Really lame, yet it could have been really really funny if they went PAST one fucking word.

Besides, do blacks even say nigga THAT much? i think theyre stereo type is waaaaaay off (meaning what japanese think of us)


Unless im just missing the joke?

I think by saying more than is needed makes it better. Ans as I said, the ending is good.

Blacks mostly say "nigga" as a term of compassion, not as a derogatory instlt, but not to that extent. The movie would be funnier if they extended far into other cultural things.

But hey, I guess you're instantly cool over there if you're an American  tongue

Notice how when the daughter comes in acting like a Japanese teen they all act annoyed.

A nice thing to say to your mom when she makes breakfast:
Bitch, you my number one nigga.

Like the joke about the receding stock market, though.
