Hard Gay cooking with kids!

So the name may sound wrong. His moves look so very wrong…. but damn I have not seen anything this funny in quite awhile. Before I freak you out and people contact administrators believing I am posting porn or whatever, I’ll give you a brief outline on who this guy is.

Razor Ramon Sumitani Hard Gay” or just “Hard Gay” or even “HG” is a character created and performed by Japanese comedian, Masaki Sumitani. Hard Gay goes around Japan dressed in a black leather outfit, helping the community.

Although it may sometimes be kinda hard to notice with his signature pelvic thrusts and over enthusiasm, which may shock audiences more than entertain them. All the same I found him hilarious. Well in the clip that I’m posting, he is doing a segment where he tries to “fix” kid’s dislike of certain food. The first one is a Green Pepper, and the second one is Natto which is made from Japanese fermented soybeans. I love these kids expressions. Enjoy!!!

Hard Gay: Green Pepper

Hard Gay: Natto

Avril Lavigne, the global Girlfriend

Avril Lavigne, the “punk princess”, has decided to record and release her new song, “Girlfriend”, in 8 different languages. The song “Girlfriend” is purely a pop number – but then again, was Avril really a real ‘punk rocker’ anyway?

The 8 languages Avril Lavigne has decided to record “Girlfriend’ in are English, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. I’m sure the marketing technique here is to globalise her songs to the local languages was an interesting one. But it just makes for extreme hilarity, with her shocking accents, tones, and even using incorrect sentences.

It was reported that she was going to sing “Girlfriend” in Hindi. Fortunately for the Hindi speaking community, “attempts at Hindi proved too difficult. We tried Hindi twice but the diction and the meter of how you sing Hindi versus the western rhythms just didn’t match and we just couldn’t pull it off,” said her manager, Terry McBride.

They should have gotten her a speech coach or something before unleashing the songs onto the world and ruining the major world languages.

The one that really made me laugh so much was the one in Mandarin Chinese. My friend thinks that Avril is using both Mandarin and Cantonese in the song. Meanwhile, all I can say is, “Mum, at least I can speak Mandarin better than someone famous!”
