    What caliber?

    1. avatar jwm says:

      .9mm……of course.

  2. avatar imrambi says:

    If it’s a shrimp gun, it’s a tiny caliber.

    1. avatar Omer Baker says:

      That’s what jwm said.

      Oh, I went there.

    2. The shrimp were screaming but they are sub-sonic.

    It’s past your bedtime, Bob!

    That was friggen cool!

      Any food that requires arc-welding level eye protection is OK by me…

      Can anyone provide a Japanese translation?

      1. avatar g says:

        My Japanese is pretty rusty, but the gist of it is: It’s a commercial for Docomo, a Japanese mobile phone company advertising their new faster service, but obviously spoofing Japanese cooking shows The 2 ladies playing off each other is also a nod to a classic 2 host Japanese comedy set-up called manzai.

        My Japanese is a little rough, and I’m not sure I caught everything correctly, but here’s the best I’ve got for a translation:
        Narrator:
        Three second cooking.
        White shirt:
        Today we’re making fried shrimp.
        Brown shirt:
        We’ll introduce a method to cook them in three seconds.
        White shirt:
        For ingredients we’ll need six shrimp…
        Brown shirt (interrupting):
        We’re moving over here. Put these (goggles) on.
        Add fresh eggs here.
        Be careful not to add too much flour.
        The shrimp are carefully arranged like so.
        And now we push the button.

        Isn’t it delicious?

        Narrator: wrapping up, please be careful when trying this yourself.

      Extra credit for the Alton Brown reference.

      Imagine if you forgot to clean it before putting it away.

      1. avatar LarryinTX says:

        That’s what *she* said.

  7. avatar Pikes Pete says:

    Here are they now?

    The two princesses from Mothra island.

    1. avatar Timmy! says:

      Slow clap for the “Mothra” reference! Bravo sir.

  8. avatar jwm says:

    What, no Tentacles?

    1. avatar Avid Reader says:

      This is a family friendly website, according to Robert. No tentacles.

    2. avatar Ian says:

      As requested . . .

  9. avatar LongBeach says:

    Somebody please make a video of this thing firing synced up to Bubba of Forest Gump reciting all the different shrimp recipes. So I can die happy.

    1. avatar Chrispy says:

      ^ Winning

  10. avatar Royal Tony says:

    I could use this for my HD set up. Those hot shrimp will definitely leave a stingy red mark. And if the perp has a shellfish allergy? Fuggetaboutit.

  11. avatar 5Spot says:

    Did Shootingthebull do the ammo review on those yet?

    1. avatar Phil COV says:

      Nice

    2. Yes but you can’t see the penetration because it is pixelated.

      1. avatar 80 D says:

        I see what you did there.

  12. avatar mike oregon says:

    Do these come in pig or cow?

    1. Why? Are you afraid of a home invasion from a Hindu and a Muslim?

  13. avatar Pieslapper says:

    Is there a super soaker with cocktail sauce?

  14. avatar PeterK says:

    Do want.

  15. avatar Fuque says:

    Looks like benihana’s is amping up their cooking methods again.

  16. avatar jwm says:

    After their moment of fame in an Austen Powers movie Fook U and Fook Mi had to take what work was available.

    1. avatar 16V says:

      Oh beeehave!

  17. avatar Micah says:

    Hey, I can use all the help I can get in the kitchen. Plus, it’s sure to piss off both MDA and PETA.

  18. avatar NWGlocker says:

    I think I saw that in Despicable Me

  19. avatar Paul says:

    That cracked me up. Well done.

  20. avatar stateisevil says:

    Lol. As close as they’ll ever get to using a real gun.

  21. avatar defensor fortisimo says:

    For those times when a mouse gun just isn’t small enough

  22. avatar Paul53 says:

    Add a rail to mount a tacticool cocktail sauce applicator then get back to me.

  23. avatar Phil COV says:

    Whoa! Japan released a grainy internet video that’s wasn’t pornographic. Proud of ya!

  24. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    PRAWN POWER!

  25. avatar TomJ says:

    They need this in Idaho for the runaway cows. Surf and turf =no more problems.

  26. avatar DPV says:

    Fucking Japan.

  27. avatar Gordon Wagner says:

    Will it work with crawfish?

    1. I think so, but I can’t back that up.

  28. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Now. A small pumpkin cannon, a piglet, a big bonfire and a couple of mattresses.
    Hmmm

    1. Would that be the country version of “Sex In The City”?

  29. avatar g says:

    I LOL’d. Well done commercial!

  30. avatar Rosetta Stone says:

    Flied Shrimp

    1. avatar WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot says:

      Ahh see whatcha did there, bravo. Extra points for the TRIPLE entendre.

  31. avatar Ing says:

    Funniest thing I’ve seen in weeks. (Yeah, I need to get out more, but whatever.) Still LOLing.

    I wanna know where they got that music.

  32. avatar Jjmmyjonga says:

    That is cllllaaazzzzy….

  33. avatar Bob Brayer says:

    I have no words other than “Those look like gigantic mutant prawn/hulk/shrimp”. I do however appreciate the artistic prowess of the video. Now, I am not fluent in Japanese… But, I assume that this product is multi-faceted in the fact that this could work for chicken tenders, cat meat, and various other “need to be battered” substances… How about twinkies? or glock mags?

  34. avatar 2hotel9 says:

    That made me want some shrimp!!!! And saki.

  35. avatar Pencotron says:

    The shrimp should have gone through the egg wash first, then the flour. Just sayin’.

    1. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Damn. A food critic here? Who’d’athunk?

  36. avatar Alan In FL says:

    Damn, I’m getting hungry for some Shrimp Tempura. I loves Japanese commercials. They have no point of selling the real product but they have a real big funny bone in them.

  37. avatar archangel187 says:

    Looks like hardcore prawn to me.
