Japanese Blackface Obama: Yes We Can Be Incredibly Inappropriate (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Gabe over at Videogum found this amazing video of a Japanese blackface version of Obama. The video, posted on inauguration day, shows "Barack" and "Michelle" making a grand entrance and then performing a magic show. (Perhaps this is a racial metaphor for the magic of America electing a black president?) "Barack Obama" uses all of his familiar catch-phrases, but this time it's "yes we can pull an orange out of an empty bag." Japanese TV is weird.
