Express expression of different cultures funny time for sushi (time of sushi)

It is an interesting short movie "time for sushi" by Los Angeles artist David Lewandowski (Twitter). At the beginning, in Japan, the familiar phrase "... for defending, asking for your cooperation ..." on the streets broadcasts, and the image of the priority seat where no one sits is flowing. There are suddenly two naked people appearing in the sky and dancing. It gradually increased and became a naked crowd and it is crazy dancing in the street (laugh) Is it inspired by "bubble dance" which is the birthplace of kabuki? In disguised social norms and orderly space like Japan, disorderly and naked dancing crazy people are introduced as a symbol of different culture. I think that the funnyness of the movie that puts this body beauty all over can be expressed only by comparison with Japanese culture. I think that this time for sushi (time of sushi) can be called "video sushi" in California now ^^) Vimeo is "for adults" as there is worldly "funny sushi". time for sushi from dlew on Vimeo. For the indie artists like us the future of YouTube has become unclear and unprecedented. I am very grateful to those who purchase goods of my work and support them. In making this third video, this series originally comes from an anti-commercial spirit, and there were no plans to sell goods. However, as a result of major advertisements getting out of YouTube in early 2017, we had a great influence on our filmmakers. Purchasing books and towels will help me in my next step. support: http: // google.
