Just watch the video. It explains itself and we're looking forward for your comments of which I'm guessing will be many.

No, you see, this is Sergio making a meta commentary on imitation and– sorry, Sergio, I'm trying, but I remember seeing this already.

Everybody wants to Be Black but nobody wants to be Black, it's cute I am all right with it as long as I know the real deal about how we are really truly seen over there. The part that upsets me that does not have anything to do with them as a culture is that if it's like that -How come we keep hearing that horrible line that our Black films have no INTERNATIONAL BOX OFFICE , somebody is perpetuating this ugly line and it has become a truth -based on this and other videos in other countries we should be having massive box office hits abroad!-I 'd rather see them happily do this then to hear the lie about how we are not loved abroad!!!!

Yeah i thought I'd seen this before-just a few months ago. Besides isn't it part of Japanese pop culture to copy everything the West does. I'm more concerned about younger BLACK people who think this is Black culture.
