Michael Moore on Akihabara


Comedy fat man and leftist documentary maker Michael Moore has paid a visit to Akihabara, with the town leaving a distinctly unfavourable impression on him it seems.

Above he dispenses the first of his sage observations: “A lot of unnecessary things are being sold here.”

Other choice quotes:

“Shopping may brighten the spirits, but they’re just fooling themselves.”

In response to “Okaerinasaimase, goshujin-sama!” at a maid cafe:

“I’m not your master! Everybody’s equal.”

With cheery insights such as these, some fear another documentary may be in the offing…
