大家好 我是Asian Boss的Kei 我们发现
Hey guys, Kei from Asian boss. What we found out is that the cultural gaps
between Asia and the West are still huge.
So we decided to have some fun today and ask people from western culture
ridiculous questions about Asia.
This time, Japan.
So Hello Kitty has become the national mascot of Japan.
What do you think of that?
I think that’s probably correct.
这可能是我们熟悉的唯一一个和日本有关的东西 它风靡全球 所以 这决定还不错
It’s probably the only really thing that we know out of Japan that’s quite big, so yeah.
I think that’s pretty stupid. Sorry.
it’s a little bit different.
you guys don’t like Hello Kitty?
Not really, no.
Most recently, Hello Kitty has become
the national mascot of Japan for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
What do you think of that? Each to their own.
I think that’s amazing. No objection. Why Hello Kitty do you think?
Because it’s so common amongst…
文化摆在那里 对他们来说 这是个不错的选择
the culture there. So it was obviously a good choice for them.
I think it’s very Japanese. They are, like, very into the “kawai” kind of thing.
Is that really true?
Yeah. Really? Yeah.
I wouldn’t say it’s a strong mascot.
I think it’s a kid’s toy. And a kid’s brand.
so that’s all I really have to say about that.
Surely they have something
more patriotic than Hello Kitty.
The Japanese government has just banned wearing
kimonos, the traditional Japanese clothes, in public
because they were too sexy. What do you think of that?
I think that might be too conservative.
诶 我觉得这很有趣 人们穿不了他们的民族服饰
yeah I think interesting if it’s something that’s traditional to that
culture to not be able to wear it so I think that’s a bit interesting.
I think Kimono is a beautiful thing. Every time I saw Kimono, I thought it was gorgeous.
I think people should wear it whenever they want to wear it.
In Japan? No that’s stupid.
Because it’s too sexy they say. Too sexy?
What do you think about that?
事实上 在日本 走在大街上的很多人都穿得更热辣
Surely there are people walking around in Japan with far more provocative clothing today.
Girls wear that little short skirts.
Harajuku? Harajuku girl!
Oh I think….
I know when I was in Japan, I wore one and loved it
and was part of the culture. So it seems weird that
they try to ban it because it’s too sexy.
I think they shouldn’t do that. You know one of the things is, like,
I think it’s going against women’s rights and so on.
没错 你想穿就穿呗 这是你的权利
Of course. If you want to wear that, then that’s your prerogative.
that’s their cultural dress, so it’s a bit confusing to me why they would do that.
Just a few weeks ago, the Japanese scientists have made
a major breakthrough in the area of genetics and they can grow reptiles
to the size of dinosaurs, like Godzilla.
But do you think they should go ahead with this experiment?
Yeah, why not?
For me, I think….
I don’t think it’s a good idea.
I think if they wanted to go to war, maybe?
没错 我觉得他们可能有某种目的 但是
Yeah I think if there’s a purpose, maybe, but
I don’t know what the reason it would be for, so yeah…
It’s like a risk to the globe, as like a whole community.
Not just Japan, but like everyone’s at risk to that. Agreed.
I mean I I also wouldn’t want, you know, buildings to be damaged, too.
I think that just shows how great they are with
ingenuity in being able to do that but I don’t know whether it’s a good idea
in the long run.
I mean it you don’t want things to go like Planet of the Apes
or you turn back into Godzilla.
As long as they know how to, like, kill it.
if it get’s out of hand. I wouldn’t want like a Godzilla scenario.
a contained environment, maybe. That would be cool!
But it means, like, animal rights.
Alright, thank you guys so much now
all the questions were fake!
Oh my god! What is this, I was gonna say!
Not true. But the reason why we did this is because
a lot on people don’t know about like Asia
或者日本 或者别的国家 我只是想
or Japan and so on, and we just wanted to
raise cultural awareness in a more interesting way.
So are we going to be famous? Yes, absolutely! Oh, sick!
