Crab Mentality In Japan it's polite to ignore your coworkers when they have drug-induced seizures.
ashtar. The full vid is in the related videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeXLPBCiCpw
It looked like this guy and the other "rude" dude had a really fun time filming this. It'd be fun to re-edit and dub it into a short film.
Old_Zircon Cool, I've been doing it right all along.
gravelstudios Dear Japan: This man is not being rude. He's having a work induced nervous breakdown. He requires medical and psychological help. Telling him that he just needs to keep it all bottled up inside and maintain appearances is not a healthy course of action. Thanks, and have a nice day.
fluffy I don't have a lot of context on this specific video but I suspect this is intended as satire on that particular Japanism.
gravelstudios The Japanese approach to everything is so crazy that I just assumed this was sincere. As I watched it, it never once occurred to me that it was a joke.
morva It's from the series "How to infuriate people".
You may remember the other one somewhere on here where after receiving someone's business card, the other businessman rips it up disdainfully in front of their face.
So yeah, it's meant to be satirical, as in the complete opposite of an etiquette video.
