1-Click: Japanese Guys In Wife Beaters

May 21, 2007

Arrow

I just spent twenty minutes watching these dozen silly Japanese ojisan (middle-aged men) running around toting this click arrow across my computer screen. Hey, you can do it too! Just click on the photo, wait for the gray circle to load, and then move your mouse around in it.

It’s funny! Anyone who has a Japanese dad knows that they wear this wife-beater + cotton legging set under their business suits every day; and anyone who has ever been to a Japanese street festival knows that these men are experts at carrying portable Shinto shrines (omikoshi) on their shoulders while making noises that express cooperation and motivation.

Depending on which direction you move your mouse in, the ojisans scream out "right! right!" or "forward! forward!" etc. When you stop moving, they go into resting pose and go "Aaaahhh." Funnnyyyy.
