Trivia

This "TV pilot" is actually an American-made parody of a Japanese TV show. There are several perhaps intentional mistakes in the pilot: - The label of the green coffee bag is upside down katakana, but only says gibberish. - The news channel being shown is in Chinese, not Japanese. - The actors are badly trying to hide their North American accent. The daughter is speaking Japanese in obvious North American accent. - The crew listed in the credits all have American sounding names. They are just written in katakana. See more »

A very good commentary on whole-scale importing American culture, and doing it the wrong way. It's also a parody on (my understanding of) Japanese pop culture, as well as the result of overusing and devaluing obscenities. It's rather intelligent, despite its first appearance, kind of like an episode of South Park.

I would recommend obtaining and watching it, especially if you're a cynical and bitter person who hates popular culture and today's youth. I think it's a frighteningly possible look at how the near future might be in Japan, or really any other country, for that matter.

Six minutes of art.
