Portable Toilet Video 

A lot of the videos that we’ve covered in this post are a little disturbing. But we just can’t stop laughing, can we? Here is another one and it is as weird and funny as they come. How about this?

Sounds unreal right? But not in Japan.

And let’s just say that it doesn’t go as planned for most of these guys. While there are some “ouch” moments in this video, you will get some really good funny gems in there too.

More and More Funny Commercials

In case the ten-minute video above of funny commercials was not enough for you, don’t worry, we found another. This one is different from the clip you saw above. To be honest with you, it’s hard to say which of the two is funnier. I guess you should watch and decide for yourself.

Asia’s Got Talent’s Japanese Act

But what if you want a more refined form of comedy, performed at a grand stage? Ask no more, Just check out this video. The clip features a funny duo from Japan performing incredible acts. How can we explain this video? It’s not a comedy per se, but it’s just funny. Ok, we can’t. It would be better if you watched it. Spoiler alert, the duo get a standing ovation in the end and that should tell you it’s worth a view.

The Japanese Try To Speak English

Japan has a very rich and globally accepted language. However, most people in the country speak Japanese for the rest of their lives. But a few try to learn a second language. English is a very common choice for Japanese citizens. Eventually, they get good at it. But that process from an English non-speaker to fluency can bring some funny moments. Check out the video here.

Japan’s Mascot Fails

We already know that Japan has a lot of funny and incredibly cute mascots. This is the country that brought you Chitan. So they know their way around a superb mascot. But some mascot fails are just too funny to ignore. We found one video and it is as good as they get.  Just check it out and enjoy it.

Americans and Japanese Swap Snacks

Japan’s cuisine has spread all over the world. But other than sushi and ramen, most people have no idea about Japanese food. The Japanese are also very wary of trying foods from foreign lands. It is these cultural differences that make this video so hilarious. Just watch the reactions as Japanese and Americans exchange snacks. It is incredibly hilarious!

Hilarious Japanese Inventions
