Japan is to sanity what Australia is to life: You just don't go there if you want to keep it. But if you really want to gauge the madness of a culture, to weigh and categorize their collective instability, to measure exactly how long the rest of us have until they launch the war-galleys and come reaving our coastlines, you look to their music videos. Judging by Japan's offerings, we've got about sixteen hours before the world ends in a confusing explosion of dicks and blood. Here, it's better if I show you:__new_line__(It should be noted that, as with everything pertaining to Japan, what follows may not be safe for...for...look, it just may not be safe.)__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

Spring Stranger

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__This video starts out normally, or at least Japan's approximation of normal - which is to say that amorphous white people-blobs are scaling a hot pink jungle full of fancy animals. That shit is mundane for Japan; that's like opening the video on a bunch of blank tax forms. But do not be mistaken, the stakes are going to escalate. It all starts about the time the camera breaks the treeline on MDMA Jungle and reveals that the whole thing has been hiding a gargantuan naked statue of a man. The nude giant is holding up a whole other world that is, in turn, made up entirely of smaller naked men. __new_line____new_line__I mean that literally: Naked men are like drywall here. They are building blocks. They are construction materials. There are naked men crank-starting other naked men, naked men formed into crude structures, a totem of naked men mounted into one another like homoerotic Lincoln Logs, naked man-mills spinning in the wind - as though an entire civilization was based on harnessing alternative energy with CGI boners. If you zoomed in to the molecular level on any one naked man in this universe, you would find he is comprised entirely of tinier, nakeder men orbiting one another.__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__But really, if any of this disturbs you, you only have yourself to blame: When something starts off with naked bald men spinning their also naked clones atop their naked heads until they take off like naked helicopters - and you continue watching anyway, you've either been sheltered your whole life and are helplessly naive as to just how twisted the world can get, or else you achieved your first orgasm watching two dudes execute a perfect Canadian Destroyer and haven't been able to keep an erection since. __new_line__Either way, the world is about to become a much harder place for you.__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

Spiderman

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__If you love Spiderman, do yourself a favor and leave now. If you really, really, really love Spiderman, then stick around and make sure the doors are locked, because there's gonna be more than webs slingin' about real soon. __new_line__If you've ever wanted to watch forty mostly naked Asian men in Spider-man masks pogo in a warehouse, but were too worried about securing proper bail money to act on it, you are the target demographic for this video. Alternately, if you've ever wanted to be dry-humped by spiders but they won't let you in the zoo anymore, or if you've always thought the logical evolution of the rave scene was comic book themed gay orgies, or if you're just an old fashioned pervert on the tail end of a peyote trip, this is also the video for you. __new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

Fun Fact: This is the exact moment the trip turned against you.

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__To the rest of you - you whose wives, coworkers, or dogs have just walked in while you were watching a white leisure suit-bedecked Spiderman host a dance-off between rival male brothels - to you I just want to say that I am very, very sorry. On the plus side, though, the song is really catchy, and you've already lost your spouse, job, and the love of a good dog - it can only go up from here!__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

Hide Penis Dance

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__If this song has a name aside from "hide penis dance," then you go out and find it, smart guy; I'm not doing that Google search. I don't need to see those smart ads. I have plenty of Cock Cozies already, thank you. __new_line__The worst part about the video is the intro: A crackling fire, a flower petal falling, an androgynous Japanese man singing gently to you - possibly about winter snows being the footsteps of fate - and then WHAM! A busload of naked Asians playing the most elaborate game of Dick-A-Boo ever filmed. (Alternate names: Peek-A-Balls, Penis-a-boo, Penis-A-Balls, Look-Here's-My-Dick-Okay-Let's-Not-Make-A-Big-Deal-Out-Of-It-Because-You've-Got-Like-Fifty-More-Coming-Your-Way-Real-Soon-A-Boo)__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

Yeah. Fifty at least. This is just the first wave.

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__They go to such great lengths to almost show you a gaggle of cocks - from the endless paddleboat to the fake volleyball game to a few rounds of Hidden Package Double Dutch - that it starts to get kind of obnoxious. By about the three minute mark, you'll be rolling your eyes and shouting "just show me the dicks already!" And that will be it; you'll officially be gay. That's how they reproduce, you know. I read a Jack Chick comic about that on the bus one time. It's probably still there, if you want to check it out.__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

Eagle Dance

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__If there's one thing Japan loves, it's organized dancing. If there are two things Japan loves, it's organized dancing and human/animal hybrids. If there are three things Japan loves, it's organized dancing, human/animal hybrids, and man-bulges. If there are four thin -look, let's just stop this before it gets any worse. As sexually terrifying as this video about carefully choreographed naked man/eagles may be, at least I stopped that last sentence before it could add 'transformers,' 'creepy children,' and 'laser beams' to the mix and oh, god dammit:__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

I Rave U

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__This last video is by DJ Ozma. You might remember him from Spiderman up above, unless you've blocked out the rest of this article already, in which case QUICK CLICK AWAY IT IS NOT TOO LATE FOR YOU. RUN AND LIVE, BOY, RUN AND LIVE.__new_line____new_line__For the rest of you, damned as you are, come and rejoice in this exact step by step re-enactment of what it is to go mad. It happens at about the two minute mark. I've timed it. That's the point when the thin and wavering thread that grounds you to the rest of the humanity is severed, and pure burning insanity arcs through your body unimpeded. It's the moment just after the clone army of child molesters stops their exponential reproduction, but before the naked dancing men wearing Leatherface masks turn to reveal they have demons instead of cocks.__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

It's impossible to exaggerate anything about Japan.

__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__The sea-change from sanity to madness happens right as the frantic chanting reaches its fever pitch, and that disembodied head starts jumping back and forth. If you reach the part where all the women have mushrooms instead of genitals, you've gone too far. It's like right abou- you know what? Nevermind. It's just one of those things; you'll know it when it happens.__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__
