Everything about this is wonderful and hilarious and I love it. This is 100x better than the foreign language skit projects I saw growing up. Perks of being a superhero I guess.

Love this. And the Mexico guy sounds like Andre the Giant.

Love it. So much better than "Where is the museum?" and "How much is a ticket to Barcelona?"

Japanese speakers: are there jokes in the names of the KO gang (besides Saiko and Seiko)?

Me thinks that was filmed in Albert Park, next to my old university in Auckland, New Zealand.

Well, "hitumi," "kikumi," "kissumi" and "sitonmi" were all (very goofy) jokes. Everyone else had traditionally female names, which I suppose may or may not be considered a joke in the case they were given to a guy, but they were all pretty normal. Oh, and "Mexiko"--that was a (terrible) joke.

If there were other jokes in there I certainly missed it.

Also, this was really cute I thought.

They were the KO gang, so all their names ended in -ko, I guess? I'll see if some of my Japanese speaking friends have any more insight.

(this is delightful, by the way)

The KO gang has three jokes: The fact that the KO gang has all women's names despite having a mix of guys and girls is one, "Saiko" is another, and "Mexiko" is another. "Seiko" isn't a joke, it's just a totally ordinary name.

I thought it might be a reference to the company.
