    Link: Japanese Navy Commercial - Even their military recruiting commercials look like one of their game shows.

    Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I think it was meant to be a bit exciting and `wammy`. Sorry. I couldn`t think of the right word.

    @RodneyJason; Yeah. I thought that too actually. I think, that` I`ve also heard that they`ve already gone over the restrictions of what they`re already allowed to have and the US just isn`t that worried about it. But don`t quote me on that. I barely remember that much and probably got mixed up with something else.

    Cool commercial. Didn`t really make me want to join the Japanese navy, but what can ya do?

    BTW, Japan IS allowed to have a standing military, but I believe any military action outside the country must be ratified by a constitutional amendment. Since World War II, the Japanese government has been eager to distance itself from the nation`s militaristic past, so much so that they name their armed services the "Japanese Self-Defense Forces."

    1) I can only imagine the disappointment on some Japanese person`s face after they join the navy based off of what the commercial depicts.

    2) Gnarkill07 your post only shows the rest of us your ignorance. You are the type of person who makes me sad to be an American.

    This is actually a great parody based on very popular classic Japanese animation used in a real recruiting ad campaign. Recruits in Japan are given a very realistic view of what there service will be like before they are accepted into the service more so then most other nations. This add is intended to attempt to say live life and not just role play fiction. As for the hate towards the Japanese I find just pure ignorant. Japan has embraced democracy and contributes to the free World economy greatly.

    And yeah... It`s a lot better than all of those stupid Marines commercials (the one where the guy climbs the cliff face that has other guys projected onto it comes to mind), or the whole "Be All That You Can Be" (as long as that`s not gay) or "Army of ONE" (as long as you`re not gay) crap, or "the Navy paid for my school, and all I ahd to do was have fun!" stuff that we Americans see all the time...

    this is to Gnarkill07:
    If the Japanese are "stupid" than you must be a total dumbass. Their school system is probably way better than ours (I`m american.)
    Also you`re probably too much of idiot to realize that half the stuff you own comes from either China Japan or Taiwan. Even if you want to make racially biased comments about the Japanese I`m sure they don`t give a crap because they`re sucking your wallet dry as you read this letter.
    I don`t expect you to like the Japanese really it`s probably better that you`re honest than to fake that you like them.
    But seriously you made yourself look like a complete jerk. You dumbass.

    Actually the Marines had Gomer Pyle. Sure the Corp is a branch of the Navy, but they kick so much ass I consider them their own entity. 8-)

    Cool to see the different cultures at play here. I have a feeling if the U.S. Navy tried to do this they`d be sued before they could bat an eye for misleading people about military service.

    Not to say that commercial was not serious, I can`t read Japanese, but its not something we`d see anytime soon.

    K just to clear up a few mis conceptions and questions Japan technically does have a navy and army but it is simply called a different name instead of the navy it`s the J.M.S.D.F (Japanese Maritime self defense force) also at current they have one of the strongest fleets in the world even more so than WWII. There army is the J.S.D.F (Japanese self defense force) They have a strong army. another thing is that the Japanese uniforms are similar to that of the U.S navy this is because it was a U.S admiral who greatly helped the Japanese with making there Navy so as an act of thank you they use uniforms that are similar to that of the U.S`s

    Ok, it can start with your house. Think before you say something stupid, "death to America" slogans only make you sound retarded, not smart and edgy..dumba*s

    But anyway, Japan is insane. Seriously, it looks like its one huge party over there 24/7. I`d do anything to have some of their game shows over here. Too bad people would sue each other.

    wow, massive culture shock on IAB. most of you calling it retarded either know nothing about any culture besides your own (if any), or know nothing about typical recruiting tactics. american ads pretty much boast the same bullpoo -- the grandeur promises of adventure, travel, money, education, etc. -- formatted to fit american culture.

    i quite like it.

    our british join the army adverts are just full of suspense. its starts a story, which u have to log onto the internet to see the end of. then the get a sign up sheet thrown in your face.

    we know our governments game.
    either that or there advertising budget went down the drain and they had to cut the running time in half for commercials theyd already shot lol.

    japanese stuff is cool.
    kinda strange,
    but we all like a bit of cultural difference, it makes things more interesting.

    (so stop being a bunch of racists)

    and pea ooter lol, damn u for getting a comment in on the 20ft wave before i could.

    The only people who deserve to be bombed and annihilated are the racist little neo-nazis bigots that some of you are.

    If you hate asians or the japanese so much, then why click on a video that says Japanese or Asian? Lack of common sense, or the urge to whine like a cranky ol grandma.

    On a brighter note...fun video!!

    I guess if you`re an anime-boy/girl then this would really appeal to you.. which over 100% of japan seems to be, lol..
    Kinda scares me personally.. Seems to much like you`d next expect giant mobile suits to come walking out with laser swords and trans-dimensional cops show-casing their abilities.... which in that case... I would join.

    It`s the Japanese narrator dude that makes it sound like a game show. I`m sure with that kind of narration, you could make anything sound like a game show.
