Tristan’s face… Everyone else’s reactions… It’s all so fitting…

Little Kuriboh voices his loathing of the Sakura-Con 2009 anime convention commercial in the latest entry on his LiveJournal. However, rather than remaining perturbed about it, LK let his creative juices flow and created a parody of the commercial starring none other than the cast of YGO: TAS! Go watch it on YouTube!

I’m with LK on this one… There was no reason to portray the fans as unlikable hysterics in the commercial. What would people with no knowledge of anime and manga subculture think if they saw that commercial on TV? And for goodness sake, SMiLE.dk isn’t Japanese! Do your research, writers!

Update: This post has been getting a lot of views, even though the original video is no longer available. If you are still looking for further information about the video, the following posts may be of interest to you:

  1. On Nico Nico Douga, which is basically the YouTube of Japan, I searched for YGOTAS, and the original GUHROOGAMESH!!!1 video was the only one that came up. I’m not sure if LK made an account and uploaded it, or if a fan uploaded it, though. Buuuuuut it’s up there ^-^
    You’ll have to make an account on Nico Nico Douga to watch it, though. :/

  2. Indeed it is. Maybe one day, GUHROOGAMESH!!!1 and 1!!!HSEMAGOORHUG will rise from the ashes and re-enter the hearts and minds of YGO: TAS lovers everywhere… *dramatic pose, rides off into the sunset*
