Foreigner nose

Sometimes when Japanese people dress up like a “foreigner”, they put on a fake plastic nose trying to imitate our noses, which generally are more protuberant than theirs. For example, in this TV show, the comedian Tsukaji Muga is dressed up as an “Amerika-jin” (American). Notice the fake big nose and the tie 🙂

In the show, the contestants have to grab the food that passes by in front of them using chopsticks. In this other video you can see another contestant dressed up like a Mexican (curiously without nose, can anybody guess why?); there is also a Russian (with fake nose) and an Indian as well (also with plastic nose). The two girls represent China and Japan.

If you want to know what happens when one of the contestants fails and can’t get the piece of sushi watch this other video:

If you are enjoying the TV show and want to watch some more I put here a couple of more videos. In one of the videos the contestants have to dip down a meatball into a raw egg.

    Oh! I think know why he’s without nose! He’s actually the guest on the show, so they probably can’t force him to wear the nose if he doesn’t want to. Plus they want people to recognize him. He’s a famous J-pop, Johnny’s idol, Yamashita Tomohisa.
