Japan Supports Donald Trump For World President 2016 Banzai! video that has now been seen over 14 million times on Facebook and 3 million times on YouTube.
It’s a masterpiece that looks as if it were created by Japan’s best advertising agency Dentsu (the one embroiled in a scandal over bribery and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics), but it’s actually a parody: a hilarious riff on Trump’s campaign and Japanese advertising.
The creator, Mike Dahlquist, better known as Mike Diva, is an American video director, special effects artist, musician and YouTube personality. He spent $1,000 and a month of his time to create it and it debuted last Wednesday. The seemingly Japanese pop idol in the video is a costume player and not Japanese either. Diva-san is not a Japanese anime fan or traditional Japanophile.
I’m definitely a huge fan of Japan’s quirky advertising, pastel colors and I’m definitely not a Trump supporter, “ he told The Daily Beast.
The video begins with a blue-haired Japanese girl in her bedroom, festooned with Trump posters and knickknacks and cute hand-drawn illustrations, manga-style, of the would-be future President.
An infectious Japanese pop track plays in the background; sounding very much like an AKB48 hit song. The television switches on and Japan’s once independent public broadcaster, NHK, releases breaking news with the announcement that Trump has been elected “World President.” (Let’s face it, in the alternative Japanese Universe the USA is the World). The Japanese text on the left, also notes: “Trump is God.”
Our sultry teen heroine is so happy about the news that she transforms into a sparkly flying Princess a la Sailor Moon and she and Donald embrace.
In less than a minute, the World President transforms into a giant Evangelion-style robot, builds up a huge army, builds a giant wall, flies into space, and from there launches a super laser blast which destroys the entire planet Earth.
The video is hilarious … unless you consider the possibility that Donald Trump or Shinzo Abe might ever have the power to launch nuclear missiles.
