This is why zombies don't go to Japan

People may have already seen this in one form or another, but what the hell - slow news day...

The setup: What appears to be a Japanese version of Scare Tactics staged a fairly-elaborate prank; convincing a trio of extremely young children ("Santa Claus age" I think would be the Western shorthand re: how likely they are to have "bought" this) that they needed to defend their home - and a conveniently holed-up news crew - from an attacking Zombie. To complete the illusion, a guy in a sure-to-traumatize-a-six-year-old Zombie costume comes trudging onto the scene. Here's what happened...



Egged-on by the reporter but mostly left to their own devices, the kids (understandably) freak the hell out... but then proceed to set "Home Alone"-style Zombie traps, "beat" the attacker into submission (he's "going along with it") and attempt to suffocate him with saran-wrap. The oldest-looking one goes at him with a plastic sword, shouting "I will destroy you!" and berrating the reporter for not helping them. You would not want to be in Zombie Guy's place had they not (presumably) made sure nothing that might actually HURT was at their disposal - these kids are not fucking around.

And people wonder why no one ever wants to fight Japan hand-to-hand....

That was that hardest I've ever laughed in a while.

I saw earlier on a geek site called Topless Robot. You might like it there Bob.

And yes, the kids are hilarious.

I've only just woken up, and this video totally made my day. That rarely -if ever- happens. Thank you, Bob. Plus, this made my already rather high level of respect for the Japanese go up several notches.
