Yakitate Japan‘s dancing baker

9 Feb

no matter how many times i watch this ending clip of Yakitate Ja-Pan (season 2), it just never fails to crack me up. this prancing beefy Phantasia baker (Ken Matsushiro, Kazuma Azuma‘s zany mentor) — who looks like he can snap your bones with a flick of his finger while eating nails for breakfast — makes a snappy and hilarious finale to a series that delights in taking “absurdity” and “exaggeration” to new heights. ken makes john travolta look like a snirpy wimp. heheh

whew! i can’t believe it took me this long to track down the clip that i really wanted and to fix things up. if ever there’s one compelling reason why you should sit through the closing song of a series, this would be it.
