“Big Nosed Blondes”: ANA CM “Racist Against Whites”

ketou-meiku

All Nippon Airways is being accused of racism after it released a commercial featuring the classic “gaijin” of Japanese imagination – a Caucasian with a gigantic proboscis and mop of blonde hair.

The ad was supposed to to highlight the handy addition of new international flights at Tokyo’s mostly domestic Haneda Airport, but a blonde wig and oversize nose put paid to that:

Barbarians living in the capital remarked that “how does Japan expect to persuade foreigners to come to Japan when carriers like ANA feel free to put out openly racist ads like this?”

AFP got wind of the story and pressed ANA further, after which they admitted the CM had generated a number of complaints amongst non-Yamato and apologised for any discomfort it may have caused.

They did not however go so far as to say they would can the CM over the accusations, however.

Online the issue has been the subject of much discussion:

“So whites have a complex about their huge noses!”

“The template for a Japanese is a bespactacled little buck-toothed camera-wielder so I don’t know what they are complaining about.”

“I thought this would cause complaints as soon as I saw it…”

“What kind of moron at the advertising agency let this one through.”

“Talk about behind the times.”

“Isn’t it really making fun of the Japanese though?”

“This is actually an expression of an inferiority complex on the part of the Japanese.”

“Japanese are basically envious of their high noses.”

“I thought it was more masochistic than anything else. Though it pretty much illustrates their level of international awareness that they never cottoned on to the fact it might cause problems internally.”

“The typical image of Japanese you see in their TV is less than flattering as well though.”

“I suppose the foreigners are OK with the samurai-ninja stereotype of Japanese and that isn’t discriminatory at all?”

“These whites and their victim complex, they are worse than blacks!”

“This about the only way you can tell a foreigner from Japanese in manga. Not that they are making fun of their huge noses or anything.”

“Many whites are sensitive about the ridiculous sizes of their huge noses. That emphasising this is likely to be considered discriminatory is common knowledge now. Especially amongst TV broadcasters. So what kind of idiot does it take to put out a CM like this!?”

“Do they think we are making fun of them? But we all think their noses are marvellous…”

“Whites are so easily goaded despite them all hating yellow monkeys and blacks.”

“Foreigners are easy on themselves and harsh on everyone else.”

“Are Pinocchio and Tengu discrimination against you? Stop calling everything discriminatory you dumb foreigners.”

“Their English conversation was even more stupid than the fake nose and wig…”

“Just what the hell is this commercial trying to say anyway?”

    I believe that this myth was constructed due to the japanese porn directors pick guys with normal sized penises while westerners pick the guys with monstruous huge dicks.

    No one cares what size the guys dick is in porn. Who picks out a porn and says "Well, this guy has a small dick, so I am not gonna get this one"

    Why would gay men or women care about dick size? Bigger = looser ass or pussy so bigger would be bad wouldn't it? You ever hear of a woman who is glad her man is well hung and that her snatch is now a gaping maw? If dick size matters, then smaller is the way to go, unless you're sure you'll never need to attract another mate again and in today's world no one is sure of that.

    As an asian and as an not that tall guy i have to agree with the logic. The penis is a body part and the size of the person should have relation with penis size the same way that it have relation with the head size, hand size, feet size, leg size, etc. of course there are tall people with small heads or short people with big feet but in average taller people should have bigger body parts than shorter people.

    But the differences shouldn't be as big as people joke around. By searching scientific data around the internet the difference is small and considering that the average height of different human population aren't that different it all makes sense.

    Intended message of Commercial:

    "HAHAHHAHAHA......yes, we Japanese must try to become more American by becoming bigger nosed liars. "L-O-L"----hahahaha...you see??? WE Japanese can master American IRONY!!!! BANZAIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Sadly, the hapless Japanese ad agency subliminally betrays their massive PENIS-ENVY by making it all so fucking phallic in the end.

    Final message: "We Japanese wish we had bigger penises like the Americans. Oh well. At least we can make our Anime characters blond. Shimatta..."

    Someone call the paramedics, this man is suffering from severe butthurt!

    There was nothing remotely phallic about the commercial. I think someone must have a serious complex to drift to that conclusion.

    Whether intended or just a sign of what goes on in the mind of the ad creator(who knows, and I don't really care). But there is some psychological merit to this large fake nose being seen as a phallic symbol.

    Ive been in a few navy locker rooms in my day. The myth stands true. Asian guys got the short end of the stick, hell even my asian friends girlfriends laugh when theyre not around. On the othe rhand, Ran across this black dude from the islands in training and he was no joke dangling at least 8 inches soft.

    There's huge variation in sizes across Asia, from north to south in a consistent gradient with the exception of Japan.

    Mongolians have Khan sized sausages larger than Europeans. Northern Chinese often double the length of southern Chinese. With Southeast Asian countries getting short end of the stick. Japan is an anomaly - it's fairly far north, but tinier than Vietnamese.

    Who cares, by the time women find out about your dick size, they usually aren't in a situation to laugh and leave you hanging.

    Then you can be rubbish at sex AND with a small penis, but again, who cares? As long as you cum, you can leave her hanging.

    Then she leave your ass.

    Then you find a new girl.

    I remember reading a study about the whole "penis size myth" and actually the results were that SOUTH Asian men have the smallest penis sizes comparatively.

    Masters and Johnson compared penis sizes across the various genomes. In the flaccid state, Africans are longest, Asians shortest. Thus the locker-room perception that black men have the largest schlongs.

    However, in the erect state there is little difference - on the average. Asians do have the least variation in erection size, Africans have the greatest variation. So one will find both the smallest and largest erections among Africans even though the typical size is typical of all males. Public perception is skewed by reporting bias - i.e. what guy is going to brag about a small erectin?

    Yeah, the penis size thing is a myth actually, the average variation in penis size across all races goes around 2 to 3 cm.
    It's a perception issue, jap porn has mostly guys with average sized dicks while western porn casts guys with way bigger than average sized dicks.

    Myth? Ha! The condom industry disagrees. The REGULAR condom size for most Asian countries is smaller than that of European and American countries. This is because condom sizes are catered to different population averages.

    In fact in places in Thailand they interviewed PROSTITUTES to discover the correct size necessary for the their people because Thais refused to wear them due, to them sliding off.

    Which was a serious problem, to the global health board, due to the rampant spread of AIDS throughout Asia. And since changing to a smaller condom, which reflects the Thai people, condom use has gone up.

    LOL no. Most "White trash" aren't in the KKK and love racial stereotype humor. Only white people upset about this are White supremacists and their ilk who think everybody's out to "get Whitey", and bleeding heart libs with no sense of humor who think they have to "save" the other races. Everybody else would think this is hilarious.

    One of the dirty little secrets of this world is that normal people (of all races, nationalities, etc.) don't easily get "offended".

    There is no such a thing as a white supremacist. That's a myth perpetuated by jewish television to induce racial hatred by activating a 'race inferiority complex' in the non white viewer.

    KKK only wanted to maintain a home, culture and children's upbringing in the foundations of their forefathers, they eventually went militant because of the 'white supremacist' lies against them.

    People that use the 'white supremacist' line are fake or have zero knowledge of reality.
