Just discovered a series of cute commercials from Japan called Mameshiba. The name means trivia knowledge and each episode features a very adorable bean or pea with puppy face: green pea, peanut, natto, edamame, coffee bean, jelly beans… As the person is about to eat the bean/pea, the cute face pops up and disclose a trivia knowledge, totally ruining the eater’s appetite. Facts like, did you know that a squid has three hearts? Or that a flamingo’s milk is pink? Or when you kiss millions of bateria are transferred between mouths? Or that a koala’s appendix is two meters long. Some unappertizing fact best discussed at another time, and the fact that your food starts talking to you… is enough t turn any face blue.
This version here has been subtitled, and you can find more related videos on the side bar.
So very charming. I was even considering getting a little edamame shiba cellphone charm.
