Cup Noodles Japanese TV Commercial


The next time you slurp up a cup of instant noddles, just think about how many stupid men gave their lives for your enjoyment:
 No... I don't understand the point of it either.

I will say that I enjoy putting a raw egg in the cup before pouring in the hot water... and then stirring it up before slurping it up.

But what is the point of the commercial? Is it: 

Don't put all of your eggs in one basket when attacking an enemy with superior weaponry.

OR... maybe the moral is that a cup of noodles can make you incredibly brave in the moments before you die in battle.

Or... maybe Japan has no clue why people eat a cup of noodles. Survival ain't it. It's because we like a cheap snack. I pity the person who thinks that's an entire meal, ya malnourished bastard.

Or maybe it's a great freaking take at what every single English class for three years was like for me as an AET (assistant English teacher) on the JET (Japan Exchange & Teaching) Programme.

Yes... that what it was about... surviving... and not just the Japanese students, either.

This is a brilliant ad for Nissin Food's Cup Noodle.

I have always loved the fact that this brand of ramen instant noodles is always spelled singular - Noodle... as though there was only one... probably because they guys coming up with the brand name did as well in English classes as the poor actors in this commercial.

Somewhere I'm fine thank you, and you?
