  1. Merely an observation. It has always been my understanding that monkeys occupy a unique position within Japanese culture. While I certainly do not know if the telephone ad reflects such culture, I certainly cannot rule it out without more information.

Comments here are moderated. I appreciate substantive comments, whether or not they agree with what I've written. Stay on topic, and be civil. Comments that contain name-calling, personal attacks, or the like will be rejected. If you want to rant about how evil the RIAA and MPAA are, and how entertainment companies' employees and attorneys are bad people, there are plenty of other places for you to go.
