Akihabara, Kirsten Dunst, Superflat

Have you seen the clip featuring american actress Kirsten Dunst in a cosplay outfit?

Well, it’s a remake of Vapors’ hit “Turning Japanese”. And it’s funny to compare both clips, at least to notice the evolution of ‘Japanese clichés’. Before, it was all about Geishas & Samurais, now it’s Otakus, Animation, Cosplay…

But cliché, really? After all, this clip is produced by superflat artist Takashi Murakami, who believes the new japanese culture can exist without the Western influence…

So, are you ready to “turn japanese”?
