“BIG ENTER” key — for those REALLY stressful times! Hey gang! Why a video for the BIG ENTER key? Why not? 😉 In all seriousness, today’s scheduled anime review has been delayed ’cause Murphy’s Law is currently in full effect at my job. But hey, I can’t complain ’cause it is massive overtime, and I

Japanese commercial

Bet you think this awesome Japanese commercial is about baseball.

Bet you think this awesome Japanese commercial is about baseball. You’d be wrong about the baseball part.
