    Link: Bike Bell Prank - People in Japan jump to side of the road when they hear bell, even without a bike. This would get you beat up in the US.

    i dont think youd get beat up for that in the US. I`d probably think he was one of those salvation army people ringing the bells for pocket change.

    Seemed senseless and baffling until the bit on the escalator and the shop and now I can`t stop laughing.

    Would this really get you beaten up in the US, though?

    looks like an organized society to me.

    not like fat-ass new yorkers who take up the whole freakin sidewalk and walk snail-pace.

    maybe i`ll move to japan.

    Its interesting that they moved out of the way, for a moment there it reminded me of a dog trick. >_>; The guy`s voice is hilarious though, that was the only funny part about it.

    I think everyone should carry around a bell as and ring it if they`re in a hurry so everyone knows to move. Instead of the old fashioned "MOVE IT OR LOSE IT" I wonder what the peoples reactions where after they saw that nobody was riding a bike.

    WOW! You guys, I don`t think the person who worked at the store or the guy on the escalator moved because they thought a bike was passing, it`s COMMON COURTESY. It would be pretty rude to just stand there when someone is clearly suggesting he would like you to move.
    Besides, who knows what the guy on the escalator or the person working in the store thought. He could have been mute or have a serious speech Impediment....I bet some of the people on the street were thinking the same thing, except for the ones who were a bit quick to move to the side.

    This is going to be like the kid who cried wolf, all the bussiness men are going to use these to get around faster then people are going to stop paying attention then WHAMO a string of bike related deaths cause them to be more cautious, but then some clever bastard tries it again. Lather, rinse, repeat. Fall of eastern civilisation.

    I am truely bored.

    You know guys. I don`t speak Japanese, but I assume that was just showing that you can let someone know you want to pass by ringing a bell. I don`t think they thought it was a bike, they just realized someone was trying to get past them. If you say someting to them, do you really think they would know you`re talking to them? They would just think you`re talking to someone else and ignore you.
