Re: "REAL WORLD" by Natsuo Kirino - NYTimes new [re: robpongi]  

Rob, I just saw you on This Week in Politics on CNN. They were doing a viral video segment on Japanese elections and had your "I'll Give You Free Beer" slogan that you were doing. I don't think they thought you were joking since they didn't imply it as such but you had more exposure nonetheless.

Re: "REAL WORLD" by Natsuo Kirino - NYTi new [re: ghostlove]  

One of the great Rob Pongi episodes is based around the book "How To Goodbye Depression" and it shows Rob wearing a fake arse (at his usual spot outside a nightclub in Tokyo) whilst putting to the test the method of "constricting anus 100 times a day". When I watch this sequence followed by his insane screaming about the Rob Pongi Happy Hour, I still cannot believe that I spent a weekend with the man in 2002. Well, it's really funny stuff.

I watched that one, too. I guess that technique is good for your Kundalini/Chakra base but very funny to be demonstrated by the Pongi crew.

W.........T.........F......!!!!!!!! new [re: ghostlove]  

WHAAAAAAAADDDDAAAAAHHHHAAAAAIIIIIILLLLLL!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Ghostlove. Let me get this straight, you actually saw little 'ol me on freaking CNN in a setting kind of like this:



if so, then it was from this video:

Japanese Political Candidates Video

and that one was done all in Japanese and, of course, unless you can speak Japanese, you won't get it. Anyway, in this one, the subtitles with quote marks are intentionally incorrect translations that are not what the candidates are actually saying, but rather, what they should be saying and giving to the people of Japan. The subtitles without quote marks are all correct.

If possible, please tell me what day and time you saw this on CNN. Thank you for ripping off my head yet again! I'll never forget the day you suddenly congratulated me for being written up in THE ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE!!!!! Oh Dear Buddha! Now THAT was so mind blowing, sometimes I still stop and shake my head about that one little story and pic:



SO FREAKING UNREAL!!!

Discovering Japan new [re: Adam]  

HAHAHA!!! DOUMO ARIGATOU ADAM-SAN!

Yeah, you are talking about the Group Anal Constriction Video - Inspired by Hiroyuki Nishigaki Oh THAT ONE WAS A BLAST!!!!

Yeah, that one wild and weird clip has somehow stayed somewhat popular through all the years!!!!! It just knocks me out cause I just had that book and the plastic "cheeks" pants that I bought in a department store here. So while reading the book, I then got the idea for the video. But only I knew that and we didn't have time for rehearsal or scripting et al and I just told my Japanese ex girlfriend and my other American buddy "OK, you guys, just follow my lead, we are going to be doing this book" and they knew about that book and so I just turned around, cams went on and then we just went TOTALLY OFF!!!!! OH MY HAPPY BUDDHA!!!! It was just too much fun back then.

And yes sir, you most definitely were here! And we had alot of fun! And we went up to Nikko and I filmed this video then:

Scenes From Nikko Video

and on that day it started to rain while we were in the Temple complex. You can see some raindrops sometimes in the video. And the rain level was just enough to keep all the major crowds of sightseers away and that was the reason why I could get such well framed shots of so many of the beautiful shrines, temples and statues. Do you remember when I broke a rule and climbed up and over the yellow rope barrier in order to get a birdseye shot of the whole Toshogu Shrine complex? Well, I got it! And you can see it at the very end of the video. And that video has received more than a few awards and recognition including 'Multimedia Feature of The Week' on Bowienet on March 24, 2002!!! . Well, I got lucky because of the on/off rain and also because you came here. Really, Adam, its true because if you had not come here, then I would not have gone to Nikko and I would not have made that video. So in a way, we both made that one together for sure! Thank you again for visiting me in Tokyo! Please come again someday.

Re: I WAS ON CNN!!!!!!! new [re: robpongi]  

Hi Rob,

It is difficult to find the video and as the poster on the other MB said, it implies that you are actually running for office. There is a transcript but it only says [shows video]. Anyway, I don't know if it will show the light of day unless there is a CNN video site.

Re: I WAS ON CNN!!!!!!! new [re: ghostlove]  

HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Hi again Ghostlove,

Well, actually, I'm not running for an office, I'm just running for my life! No big deal, right?

And thanks alot for checking this out. I may try to call or write to someone here at CNN Japan and see if I can find out more. But I need a date and an approximate time when you saw yours truly broadcast on CNN! If you just tell me that info then I may be able to get a video out of this or, ah, maybe not. Well either way, in order to request an archive tape, of course, I'll have to tell them the date, time and also the show title name too. If you could just tell me that much, I would really appreciate it. Thanks again.

Cheers!

The show is called This Week in Politics with Tom Foreman as the host. You were on a segment that was on last Sunday so it was July 20th 2008.

WOW! That REALLY happened!!! Holy Shinto! Totally Freaking Unreal! Well, thank you very much Ghostlove. I'll try to call the CNN office here in Tokyo tomorrow morning. Take care and stay tuned (or, rather, I should be the one getting back in tune here for sure )

Cheers!
