Oronamin C

First off, a video of mine. You don't have to watch the whole thing (it's about me being an extra in Takashi Miike's Zebraman 2, so you may like it after all), but know that the audio from a scene from a movie, Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl, plays over the end. You'll have to rent the movie to see the actual scene, but it really peaked my interest back in 2004 or so. What is that? I had to find out.

So this post (as threatened) is about the Oronamin C poster the characters talk about . Here it be:

And there are many more C posters here. As to the goofy man, he is Ōmura Kon. So to finish you off, here are some of his TV spots for the drink (note that it is marketed as some kind of health or sports drink). It's not as cool without the hat though.


  1. I've been way behind on the internet so I'm just seeing this now and I am JEALOUS! I can't believe you got to stand in close proximity to Miike. Ii naaaa.

    BTW you are ice cold for removing Auntie Nan's post! Now I'm worried that I'm breaking rules.

  2. That was more of a technical issue. There are no rules...
