You may recall a month or two back about the Japanese economy minister who was pissed at a G8 financial meeting and had to resign.
Well, in Japan there is a five member band called Smap. They are a Japanese institution. They have their own 2 hour TV programme at peak time and every day at least one member appears on different programmes. Every new drama features at least one of them. They have massive advertising contracts with all the biggest and best products. Here's an example of them recently interviewing Coldplay on their recent Japan tour and they even sing Viva la vida together (which in itself is bloody funny!
Anyway, if you watched the video you would have seen the Japanese guy with two medals on his chest.
Two days ago this guy got absolutely pissed on approx 16 pints, took all his clothes off and was caught by the police shouting obscenities, naked in a park in central Tokyo
. He then resisted arrest. He remembers nothing (as you do).
All the news for the last two days has been about this. It's hilarious. All the advertisers have pulled out and it could be the end of SMAP.
And you complain about UK TV describing what Mrs Obama was wearing?
