SNL has "Negima!" Pillow on "J-Pop Talk Show" Segment

I haven’t watched Saturday Night Live in YEARS, but I have watched clips here or there, such as SNL’s attempt to mock Japanophiles back in October.

Regardless, I guess the “J-Pop Talk Show” segment was popular enough to make a comeback. If you look to your right, you’ll see a purple pillow with the Mahora Coat of Arms on in.  Does noticing this Negima! pillow make us as bad as the people being mocked in the segment? ^_~

Note: There was a video here, but WordPress stripped it out on the move from Blogger. Sorry.  I’ve no idea where it is any longer. 🙁

Thanks to TnAdct1 for providing the alert on this since I wouldn’t have known otherwise. ^_^

As an aside, I could only skim through this episode, but I did notice that they corrected the “Sensei Mark” by properly addressing him as “Mark-sensei.”  *lol*  Hey, true Japanophiles would NEVER call someone “Sensei Something” because that’s NOT the Japanese way of doing things. ^_~

    You can see it only if you’re in USA. Again those stupid restrictions! 🙁

    Does anyone know the reason for these restrictions?

    Meh… YMMV on whether the segment was popular enough to make a comeback, or whether it was another victim of SNLitis:

    Does audience laugh?
    1) Wholeheartedly: Keep repeating the gag, because the same joke will stay funny indefinitely.
    2) Halfheartedly: Keep repeating the gag, because everyone knows repetition can make anything sound silly (aka the Wolf Blitzer principle).
    3)*crickets chirping*: Keep repeating the gag, because they must be too dumb to get how funny we are the first time.

    I found it fairly humorous. All of the add-on endings kept cracking me up-aru.

    Also, there’s a pillow of Tony Chopper on the couch as well.

  5. It’s just hilarious. If I were to say something to the staff members of SNL that were on that segment, it would be (In Japanese), “日本人じゃない! これらの外人は馬鹿ですね!”

    Try a US proxy.

    $$$

    Big Entertainment is the one who established region coding for DVD’s and Blu-ray in order to extract more money from their products by forcing more companies to get licenses to see their stuff. To me, it is a failure because as we’ve seen clearly in the anime world, people in other regions get screwed routinely. *_*

    *lol* Good points. ^_^

    Didn’t notice that but then I’m not even sure who Tony Chopper is. ^_^;;;

    Ditto.

    No clue. ^_^;;;

    Heh!

    Tony Tony Chopper is from One Piece. The pillow of him (his head) is on the left side of the couch. It looks similar to this pillow: http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=GN2852#.UlC8BRBHqRo

    I also find it funny that the Death Symbol from Soul Eater is upside down. I wonder if that is on purpose or if the SNL people don’t realize which side it up.
