Funassyi is featured on CNN and gives Kristie Lu Stout a good laugh

1: れいおφ ★@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:01:55.47 ID:???
Popular mascot Funassyi was interviewed on CNN, making news anchor Kristie Lu Stout who showed the segment burst into laughter.

Stout was trying to hold in her laughter while explaining how the mascot business is huge in Japan, and how they make a major impact on SNS, stating that he has 750,000 followers on Twitter. She even said, "I have to start following him".

The moment she was about to switch to the next portion, she suddenly bursts into laughter, as if remembering what she has just saw.

A similar thing happened at a Taiwanese news program when Funassyi was featured. The female anchor who saw the VTR laughed and wasn't able to read her script properly. Foreigners probably find it hard not to enjoy the high-pitched voice coming out from the weird-looking character. Thanks to his reception on CNN, it seems like Funassyi is on the verge of becoming a global star.

His voice ain't that different from Mickey's

394 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 21:55:59.57
"Here we go!"

5 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:05:20.12
Now, he's one of the highest taxpayers
6 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:05:36.64
Because the most popular character looks filthy
9 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:06:11.41 ID:/mTh/
Was it really that funny? w
10 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:06:56.15
Funassyi still doesn't act like he's a overnight millionaire so he's still likable
13 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:07:09.18
14 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:07:11.31
Does this guy have some huge agency backing him up?
15 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:07:44.11
She probably thought that this mascot moves the same way as the vibrator that she has
16 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:08:05.36
He's more popular than Mickey nowadays
17 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:08:10.98
We've gotten used to him now, but he left such a huge impact when he just came out
22 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:09:29.83
Funassyi really was shocking
24 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:09:41.16
Looks like her funny bones have been tickled so hard w
25 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:09:51.74

Funassyi works his a$$ off so hard.
Probably a few hundred times more than us.
29 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:10:16.11
I want to hear a rags-to-riches story where the guy inside now gets to wear all-Chanel

120 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:32:22.36
シャネルの香水全身に浴びせて臭い消すのか? ファブ〇ーズのほうが良いだろうにw
He uses Chanel perfume all over his body to eliminate the odor? Some fabric conditioner would do a better job w

31 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:10:57.13
Well, because it's like seeing some random doodle moving around w
33 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:11:36.37
アメリカ人も笑う時に口抑えるんだな。 彼らは日本人が笑う時に口を抑える習慣を変だとか言ってなかったっけ?
So Americans cover their mouth too when they laugh, huh? Didn't they say that the Japanese habit of covering the mouth while laughing was weird?
34 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:11:37.78 ID:mqFa6OS/
So how far will Funassyi go?
35 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:11:49.95
Of course she'll burst out laughing w
36 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:11:54.87
What would you do if the guy inside him were some gross old man

44 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:13:56.92
That's normal

37 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:11:55.95
着ぐるみ系ってなんで声高い奴が 多いんだろう
How come a lot of mascots have high pitched voices?
45 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:14:18.07
I want to show this woman the candid explosive thing. She'll probably die of suffocation.

46 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:14:25.82
Funassyi's movements are so sharp, that's wonderful
48 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:14:33.21
I think this guy stands a bigger chance against the rest of the world than our soccer team
53 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:15:34.32
リアルタイムで喋るきぐるみは世界でも珍しいだろう 内臓入れ替えれないから
I think mascots which talk in real time are quite a rarity in the world today. Because you can't replace the guy inside it.
57 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:16:45.97
つうかここ5年ぐらいで最強の芸人がふなっしーだと言っても過言ではないだろ 日本のコメディアンが世界で通用したという事
I don't think it's an overstatement when you say that Funassyi is the best comedian we've had in the last 5 years. It means that Japanese comedians have a chance against the rest of the world.
58 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:17:13.96
He didn't make her laugh. She just laughed at him.
60 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:17:56.96 ID:IyGcL/
He's just a one-hit wonder but he's now been making a living for almost 2 years w
61 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:18:11.43
Is it true that his annual income was 500 million yen?
67 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:19:23.35
I actually want to see the whole footage

86 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:24:45.08

72 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:21:12.76 ID:6/
So even the rest of the world laughs at him, huh?
73 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:21:17.30
Which leads us to the question of what Kumamon and Bary-san's existences were for
78 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:22:15.73
Kumamon's actually popular overseas as something like the messenger of the demon
83 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:23:30.98
You guys should also remember Bary-san every once in a while
74 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:21:31.72
下手な芸人より面白い 動けるし 若い頃の岡村をもっと優しくクレバーにしたイメージ

Funassyi's a good speaker.
He's much funnier than a bad comedian. He even moves a lot. He's like a gentler and more clever version of a young Okamura.
80 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:22:58.07
Who would've thought that he would cross international boundaries...
81 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:23:14.37
以前ロンドンの街を歩き回るフナッシーの動画みたけど、 適当な英語と日本語で英国人にバカ受けしてたよ
I saw a video of Funassyi walking around in London, but his random English and random Japanese was a hit among the British

85 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:24:29.34
やっぱ動きだけで笑わせられるってのはつよみだよ 言葉関係ないからね充分世界で通用するよ
I guess one of his strengths lies in his ability to make people laugh with just his movements. There's no language barrier issue, that's why he can also become a global hit.
87 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:25:04.49
Comedians who don't even get laughed at must be so jelly.
88 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:25:05.04
お前世界いけるんじゃね? ただ空港の荷物検査で正体ばれて終了だけどな

Funassyi w Won't you be able to become a hit internationally? But you'll be done for once your identity gets blown at the customs counter of the airport. I bet that you're really smelly, and the sweat rashes must be really horrible.
91 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:25:34.94 ID:X3aSOHK/
I'm surprised at the color of the anchor's wardrobe
93 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:25:43.98
すごいな CNNて
Wow, CNN
100 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:27:49.73
I wonder if the guy inside Funassyi will get caught by FRIDAY
102 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:28:49.08
笑いのツボはあの動きだろうな ふなっしーはだいぶ見慣れてきたけど、突然シュッと背が伸びるのにはいまだに吹くわw

I watched CNN's interview video.
His comments actually sounded normal as it also passed through an interpreter, so I think the laughing point was his movements. I've gotten pretty used to seeing Funassyi, but I still LOL whenever he suddenly jumps up straight and grows taller w
103 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:28:57.99 ID:x/

People also had a huge laugh out of him in London. That movement really is funny.
109 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:30:23.58
We don't feel a thing anymore since we're used to him already, but anyone outside the country would definitely laugh if you suddenly see him doing the things he does.
112 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:30:51.59
I'm curious to see how far he'll go
119 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:32:05.17
生で見た人に聞きたい ふなっしーの声はどこから聞こえてるのか・・
I want to ask anyone who's seen him live in person... Where can you hear that voice coming out from?
122 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:33:02.82
That interview video of Funassyi's really surreal
123 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:33:08.58
Funassyi of the world wwww
128 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:35:05.14
He's definitely more likable than those Yoshimoto comedians
141 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:38:11.30 ID:3a/Q9/
普通あの手のキャラはボケっと突っ立ってるだけだが ふなっしーは動きがコミカルだから
Characters like that normally just stand up and do nothing, but in his case, his movements are pretty comical
147 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:39:58.59
I guess this will be the next "Japanese thing" that they'll do in Hollywood
149 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:40:26.74
I think that one's culture can be quite embarrassing
158 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:44:51.10
Kumamon who's gone insane with jealousy would like to say a word ↓
159 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:45:25.69
Anyone can do something like that

163 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:47:12.67
>>158, 159
Nice going you guys w

177 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:51:59.07
I get the feeling that the guy inside him will be able to learn English quickly
180 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:52:54.55
BBC, hurry up and make a documentary about Funassyi
183 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:55:01.50
Make Funassyi the manager when we face Greece up next
196 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 17:59:44.14
Is he even cute? His face actually looks creepy.
199 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 18:00:41.63
The guy inside must actually be smart. He keeps on earning while he can.
212 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 18:03:55.02
I'm starting to grow tired of him
251 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/06/16(月) 18:30:51.78
It's so peaceful in Japan, right?
