    We thought they were doing it for the good of the Web. But now we know it was all for those lucrative Japanese commercial endorsements.

    Tsk tsk tsk.

    (Anyone want to fly me to Tokyo to endorse products?)

    Well, how else was I supposed to afford my Bugatti Veyron?

    It's OK. Zeldman has to pay for divorce, as well as frequent surgeries.

    I look like an elf, and Eric looks deranged. This is a sad photo. I'm sorry about the wasabi.

    I've seen the commerical. Eric plays a clean-cut American, visiting Tokyo for the first time. Zeldman plays the Wasabi Elf who adds extra wasabi to Eric's sushi while he's busy saying "konnichiwa" in an hilarious gaijin way. Eric then eats aforementioned superfluity of wasabi, and attempts not to sneeze it all over his Japanese hosts, hence the semi-deranged facial expression.

    Shonen Knife do the backing track.

    Well done, sir.
