Regular readers of this blog know that the Japanese sometimes have a perverse take on things, but I have to say I don’t think I’ve come across anything that’s quite as disturbing than the video you’ll see below.
As far as I can tell, this clip is from some Japanese children’s show. A little girl and her furry friends seem to be singing about the fun of…well, being abducted, held hostage and abused/tortured. According to the English subtitles, the song contains such kid-friendly lyrics as:
He forces me to wash him.
He guides me to the stirrups.
I pray for death’s release.
I am bleeding internally.
In his cellar, I am chained to a radiator.
Now, I want to believe that either the English subtitles accompanying this clip are completely incorrect and some sort of joke or that this video has been taken out of context in a way that makes it seem worse than it is. So if anyone can shed some light on what’s going on here, please do let me know. Otherwise, check out the clip here:
