Hot new Japanese TV commerical featuring a foreign male chauvinist pig

Hey, did you see the new Japanese TV commerical featuring me[1] as a foreign, big-snouted, male chauvinist pig?
I’m especially proud of my big kabe-don[2] 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:

Mayo Terrace or Mayo Terrorist?

kewpienaked-kewpie_50xJapan 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.
