Japanese TV commercials

Are Japanese TV commercials crazy?

According to these youtubers, yes:

One of the most popular TV commercials depicts a very unusual family where the father is a dog, and the eldest son is a black guy:

なんか、見られている気がするなぁ… (nanka, mirarete iru ki ga suru na...)
That is weird... I feel like I am being watched...

お父さん、あれ… (otōsan, are)
Daddy, look!


指名手配されています!(shimei tehai sarete imasu)
There is a wanted poster with your face!

俺じゃないか!(ore ja nai ka)
That is me!

あそこにも!(asoko ni mo)
There is another!

逃げるぞ!(nigeru zo)

お父さん、なに悪さしたんですか。(otōsan nani warusa shitan desuka)
Daddy, did you do something wrong?

そう言えば… (sō ieba)
As a matter of fact....

お父さん、これでバレません。(otōsan, korede baremasen)
Daddy, with this, you won't be noticed.

これ、逆に目立ってるじゃないか!(kore, gyaku ni medatte iru ja nai ka)
