Jackie Chan makes America’s most famous Japanese people list.

A survey of 100 American company workers posed the question: What Japanese person are you most familiar with? The answers are interesting. See below.

1. Ichiro Suzuki, baseball player
2. Puffy, singing duo
3. Koizumi, former prime minister
5. Emperor Hirohito, wartime emperor
12. Jackie Chan, action hero

Uh, okay, corporate America, let’s get one thing straight here. The goofy man in the black bodysuit pictured above right? He’s Chinese.

  1. The above comment being rude is obvious. However, the fact that Jackie Chan was on the list is ridiculous. I think that as a diverse culture that America is, they have to learn about other countries and cultures a lot more. We need to teach our children language and culture in school It’s amazing how many people in the world have english as a second language and the US can’t bother to teach our kids anything.
