The most recent commercial for Oishi fried seaweed is humorous for the way it's taken all the Japanese stereotypes and packaged them into one irrelevant, but memorable commercial. Translated subtitles are available.

By Karn G. Bulsuk



I'm very fond of commercials aired in Thailand. They often have a humorous bend, reflecting the nature of people in the Kingdom.

One of the commercials that recently caught my eye is advertising fried seaweed, which is eaten as a snack in Thailand. Since the commercial is in Thai, I've translated it into English which can be accessed through the Closed Caption button in your YouTube player.

If you're watching this through a mobile device such as an iPhone or iPad, you can still read the translation down below.

I'm quite fond of the way they've taken the stereotypes of the Japanese that we have in Thailand and make them into formidable, but utterly irrelevant gangs


Transcript:

The auction of the Onori type of seaweed, which is said to have a spectacular flavour, and is extremely difficult to find, has attracted the largest Japanese gangs to win it. The Yakuza gang, the Samurai gang, and the "Ano-ne" gane.

The auction is fierce and the auction price shoots up until tension boils over. Each gang is ready to confront each other without prejudice.

At that point!

"Boss! There's plenty of Onori in Thailand!"

New: Onori fried seaweed! A full favour, unlike others you may have had before! From Oishi!
