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
Now, he's one of the highest taxpayers
Because the most popular character looks filthy
Was it really that funny? w
Funassyi still doesn't act like he's a overnight millionaire so he's still likable
Does this guy have some huge agency backing him up?
She probably thought that this mascot moves the same way as the vibrator that she has
He's more popular than Mickey nowadays
We've gotten used to him now, but he left such a huge impact when he just came out
Funassyi really was shocking
Looks like her funny bones have been tickled so hard w
Funassyi works his a$$ off so hard.
Probably a few hundred times more than us.
I want to hear a rags-to-riches story where the guy inside now gets to wear all-Chanel
Well, because it's like seeing some random doodle moving around w
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?
So how far will Funassyi go?
Of course she'll burst out laughing w
What would you do if the guy inside him were some gross old man
How come a lot of mascots have high pitched voices?
I want to show this woman the candid explosive thing. She'll probably die of suffocation.
Funassyi's movements are so sharp, that's wonderful
I think this guy stands a bigger chance against the rest of the world than our soccer team
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.
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.
He didn't make her laugh. She just laughed at him.
He's just a one-hit wonder but he's now been making a living for almost 2 years w
Is it true that his annual income was 500 million yen?
I actually want to see the whole footage
So even the rest of the world laughs at him, huh?
Which leads us to the question of what Kumamon and Bary-san's existences were for
Kumamon's actually popular overseas as something like the messenger of the demon
You guys should also remember Bary-san every once in a while
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.
Who would've thought that he would cross international boundaries...
I saw a video of Funassyi walking around in London, but his random English and random Japanese was a hit among the British
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.
Comedians who don't even get laughed at must be so jelly.
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.
I'm surprised at the color of the anchor's wardrobe
I wonder if the guy inside Funassyi will get caught by FRIDAY
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
People also had a huge laugh out of him in London. That movement really is funny.
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.
I'm curious to see how far he'll go
I want to ask anyone who's seen him live in person... Where can you hear that voice coming out from?
That interview video of Funassyi's really surreal
Funassyi of the world wwww
He's definitely more likable than those Yoshimoto comedians
Characters like that normally just stand up and do nothing, but in his case, his movements are pretty comical
I guess this will be the next "Japanese thing" that they'll do in Hollywood
I think that one's culture can be quite embarrassing
Kumamon who's gone insane with jealousy would like to say a word ↓
Anyone can do something like that
I get the feeling that the guy inside him will be able to learn English quickly
BBC, hurry up and make a documentary about Funassyi
Make Funassyi the manager when we face Greece up next
Is he even cute? His face actually looks creepy.
The guy inside must actually be smart. He keeps on earning while he can.
I'm starting to grow tired of him
It's so peaceful in Japan, right?
