The goanna frightened diners.

日本でありえない、、、豪の通勤電車でいきなりダンス・パーティー!

Dancing 化粧していると猛烈に怒りを買ったり、基本的に食べたり・飲んだりが嫌がれている日本の通勤電車では絶対ありえない(携帯電話使用が禁じていることを平気で無視されても)!
 この頃、オーストラリアパース市に走る電車にいきなりスーツ姿の若い男性が表れ、「良かったら社内にダンス・パーティーやりましょう」と他の通勤者に声をかけた。その男はピーター・シャープ氏という。同氏が音楽をかけて、いきなり社内で踊りだした。そして、続々と他の乗客も踊りだし、いつの間にか社内全員が踊っていた。
 アーティストであるシャープ氏の動機は、「人々の間に会話があるように呼びかけたい。その簡単にみんなが一緒に踊れるなら、会話がどんなに簡単に始まれるのか」とコメントした。
 しんとする日本の電車ではこの行為があれば恐らく誰かが警察を呼ぶだろう。
是非、日本でもこのような陽気な通勤雰囲気を作っていけば良いなぁ~。

Japan’s Favorite Aussie is Not Quite Who She Seems

Zawachin, Japan’s Miranda Kerr impersonator,

There’s little doubt about who is the most famous Aussie in Japan nowadays.
Miranda Kerr is everywhere; online, on the box, on billboards, on paper, on glossy magazine covers and, to put it simply, on fire.
But not everything is about Miranda Kerr in Japan is quite like it seems.
Take the photo accompanying this page. It’s Miranda Kerr, right? Er, no. It’s a Japanese impersonator called Zawachin, a 22-year-old performer currently making her break — or, more specifically, making herself up — through a talent to use cosmetics to appear identical to celebrities; as long as it’s only from the mouth up and she covers the lower part of her face with a surgical mask. Nobody ever said things were simple in Japan, but as the pick shows, the resemblance is remarkable.
Kerr apparently had no idea she was being set up on a recent trip to Tokyo when Zawachin was lined up beside her and similarly attired, though as the video below shows, Zawachin’s mimicry was not quite as effective when the lens is taken away.
