Hey, did you see the new Japanese TV commerical featuring me as a foreign, big-snouted, male chauvinist pig?
I’m especially proud of my big kabe-don scene where the young housewife working as an abused supermarket stock clerk eats me! …
Also check out the second commerial with the same “Iberian pig” (イベリコ豚) playing a foreign exercise instructor who gets eaten by a housewife.
 Ok, ok, the commerical does not star me. I look much more pig-like. I have a much more pink piggy complexion, I sport a bigger snout, and I am more sparsely bristled than the Japanese actor just pretending to be a foreign pig.
Kabe-don (壁ドン)—loosely meaning, “hitting a wall”—is a “romantic” way Japanese in manga/comics proclaim their affection (and is a form of Japanese sexual harrassment). You can learn more details about kabe-don at:

Japan is the Land of Mayonnaise and Kewpie™ is king.
That is, most Japanese food comes slathered with mayo snot, and most use Kewpie™ brand mayonnaise (which has become a fetish item for mayonnaise-for-brains weeaboos*).
Worst case: Japanese Mayo & corn pizza. ⬇
To a mayo hater like me, I have to really wonder if whether the following is Kewpie’s “Mayo Terrace” or “Mayo Terrorist”?
MAYO TERRACE is a, Museum meets factory tour and a whole lot more. You would need a full day for this truly unique and educational learning experience.

馬場卓也＠3 /26 27三船ダンユマ @takuyaz #こんな花見はいやだ
Ok, ok, here’s the-rest-of-the story of Terror Blossom according to the RangerWiki (powerrangers.wikia.com)
A flower monster created by Lord Zedd from flower petals, Terror Blossom had the ability to reproduce and possessed poison petals. Terror Blossom was able to recreate the Hatchasaurus to keep the Rangers occupied. After defeating the Hatchasaurus, Jason, Zack, and Trini are frozen by Terror Blossom’s shower of poisonous petals. They are teleported to the Command Center so Billy can try to revert the effects of the poison, and he eventually succeeds. Later, Terror Blossom unleashes his flower …more…
Remember the Japanese drink sensation SLUSHO™ (3Yen 2007-08-02) made of toxic waste?
Well, it’s back.
SLUSHO™ was part of the J.J. Abrams’ hype machine for his 2008 monster movie Cloverfield.
The upcoming sequel to that film is called 10 Cloverfield Lane (IMDb.com).
The premise of the film is that the Japanese parent company of SLUSHO™, TAGRUATO Corp., has released a deep-ocean, toxic spill that has created or stirred up the Cloverfield Monster(s).
Cracking the ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ Puzzle
inverse.com | Feb. 22, 2016
…The Japanese drilling company Tagruato (which has been spotted as an Easter egg in other J.J. Abrams films like Star Trek) is an investor in Slusho, a candy soft drink that had a major presence in the original 2008 movie’s marketing. Many fans, to this day, believe for sure that Slusho’s toxic waste birthed the monster. In Cloverfield, Rob [Cloverfield’s main character] was on his way to Japan to work for Slusho until the monster attacked.
TAGRUATO Corporation was the former employer of the main character of 10 Cloverfield Lane, Howard—RadioMan70 (John Goodman), who is living in a survivalist bunker hiding from world calamity/eco-disaster/Monster/own paranoia. Howard built a survival simulator that is like a crappy, retro DOS game and in this text-based survival game you can learn all the skills you will need to survive rationing of food, water, and gear to keep from various deaths living underground at 10 Cloverfield Lane.
