Turning Japanese—UPDATED

Japan has a well-earned reputation for making batshit crazy ads like this, this or this. So, as part of the Comedy for Cure Kids on TV3 last week, Corey Jane punk'd some of the All Black newbies and tricked them into thinking they were filming an ad for the Japanese market. 

Good Sports: Comedy for Cure Kids’ screened on TV3 on Red Nose Day and raised $1.4 million for the charity.

After last year’s show, Flight of the Concords original video ‘Feel Inside’ went viral. This year it’s the All Blacks Japanese prank, with the clip quickly making the front page of Reddit.com and gathering 150,000 views in the few days online.
