So, being hung over as hell yesterday and ramped up on so much caffeine that I still have the shakes did little to improve my mood on an already shitty commute. It is wth this in mind I would like to present the top five people from commercials playing on the Yamanote Line who genuinely piss me off.
And with one exception, they’re all foreigners. Way to go, guys.
5. Silly bint from the McDonald’s commercial
Is it really necessary to put your hair in a bunch and roll up your sleeves in preparation for the eating of your Juicy Chicken sandwich? I don’t think so. (As an aside, the fact that people are actually photoblogging about said sandwich also pisses me off.)
4. Fat golpher man
Watching you swing your mid-section while you swing your stick isn’t doing much to promote the “sport” of golf, sir. I tried finding a picture of the repugnant fellow, but nothing was coming up and frankly, he’s not worth the effort.
3. The GABA bunch
Apparently the only people that GABA hire these days are attractive but wildly condescending women in their twenties from Australia.
2. The DaiJob thumbs-up cowboy
What are you, the Wild West’s answer to fucking Edo Harumi? The silly woman singing in bad Japanese in this video (not the same one as on the train) gets on my nerves as well, but it’s more as an afterthought when compared to Mr. Thumbs-up.
1. The genki Navitime guy
Congratulations, your finger-pointing foolishness has rocketed you to the top of the list. Now eff off.
Incidentally, because I know how much you’ve all been looking forward to hearing about it, last night I dragged my futon into the living room, cranked both the fan and the A/C, and curled into a ball of human misery, my body covered in hangover-fever sweat and jolting me awake every couple minutes from all the caffeine still in my system, and from the very faint but extremely vexing sound coming from the A/C, something like a distant air-raid siren mixed with wind instruments.
