For the whole week, i'll be posting extremely hilarious clips from my favourite Japanese comedy duo: The Rahmens!
There's not much info on The Rahmens due to the lack of translated sites. If you can read japanese, here's the official Rahmens site. If you can't read japanese but wanna know more, here's the lame-ass Google translated English version of The Rahmens japanese wiki - pretty much WTF stuff so dun bother...
There's loads of clips on Youtube but most of them (the live comedy skits) are without english subtitles. But their Japan Culture Lab (The Japanese Tradition) series are much easier to understand and most of them are subtitled. Some skits are just plain weird. And the funny skits need no translation.
Alrite then, to start us off:
The "Get a Mac" ad campaign (aka PC vs. Mac ads)
The original ads featured actor Justin Long (Mac) & humorist John Hodgman (PC).
The UK ads featured British comedy duo, Mitchell (PC) and Webb (Mac).
Not to be outdone, Apple Japan has their own "Get a Mac" ads - played by The Rahmens!
Note: In the japanese versions, PC is depicted as a Salariman
