From Japan…with Latex Pants!

by Ed Lau on August 8, 2007

Well, latex shorts, to be exact. It’s a well known fact that Japan produces at least 58% of the world’s weird #*%@ so it’s really shouldn’t surprise us at all when we come across a guy like…uh…Hard Gay. Nope, that’s really his name. The part that’s surprising is that…he’s far from the weirdest thing to come out of Japan. I don’t think I have to mention what any of those things are…since most of them aren’t fit for this site.

For those of you unfamiliar with this particular part of Japanese popular culture, Hard Gay is Japanese comedian (and sort of professional wrestler) Masaki Sumitani, who has a segment on a variety show called Bakusho Mondai no Bakuden!. He basically runs around acting like an idiot, doing pelvic thrusts and yelling “HOOOOOO!”. It’s freakin’ awesome. In this particular segment, he invades Yahoo!, who he thinks is using his signature “HOOOOOO!” phrase and wants them to put him in an ad.

If you have some time, go waste it by watching some of his videos on YouTube (including this one that explains the Hard Gay phenomenon by Japanorama’s Jonathan Ross). He’s not actually gay, though…

I don’t know how he gets such a positive reaction by thrusting his groin at people. When customers ask me where something is, they don’t particularly like it when I point at it with my crotch.

Ah, Razor Ramon HG. I thinks he’s great, but the fad has passed. During his peak, you couldn’t get through the day without some kid screaming “Fuuuuu!” and thrusting their pelvis in your direction.
