Our ol' buddies in Japan know what's up. When it comes to games development, electronics, excessive bowing or highly questionable porn, nobody does it better. You want a damn creepy vending machine on street corners dispensing pairs of panties? You'd better get yourself over to the Land of the Rising Wang, buddy boy. You won't be finding that anywhere else.

With regards to video games in particular, anything really odd is usually explained away by the simple word Japan. This is because these guys are fearless renegade badasses charging through the gates of hell on grandma's mobility scooter, and they're all out of effs to give. Like all creative nutbags.

But you knew all of that. What you may not have known is that they're also freaking awesome at making TV commercials. Feast your eyes on this little doozy, for instance: A trailer for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

It's all a little Batman: Arkham Knight, in a Be The Batman sort of way. In this clip, we're unleashing the Solid Snake in all of us, and generally being heroic in ways that the mantastic beardly agent himself would be proud of. Some things are lost in translation here, but if Metal Gear has ever inspired you to give an old fat woman your seat on the bus, you'll know exactly where they're going with this.

If not, you'll be all kinds of freaking confused by this, like everyone else. But either way, it's quite entertaining.
