Hard Gay Is Very Good At Drawing

Remember Hard Gay? The hardly gay Japanese comedian who dresses in leather, plays up stereotypes, and yells, “Fooohhh!”

The last we saw of Hard Gay, whose real name is Masaki Sumitani, was at a Halo 4 event in Japan during fall 2012. Sumitani hit it big in Japan way back in 2005 and has kind of dropped off the map ever since, only popping up on television every once in a while.

Recently, he was on a variety show that had celebrities show off their art skills. Have a look below.




He’s quite talented. Fooohhh sure.

  • Is Hard Gay actually gay? Or is he just playing a stereotype? Regardless, that’s some nice drawing skills he’s got.

    • Please explain in detail why you constantly do this. The guy gets paid to write things. He still gets paid so clearly management likes his stuff. Give it a rest.

      Also, this is a gaming and geek culture website. Hardgay is some pretty storied geek culture by now.

  • Hard Gay vids were a staple of the first few months of Youtube. Good times. My favorites were the ones where he would help people out on the street.

    • The noodle/ramen place he helped out was my local. It was damn fine ramen. Alas they’ve closed down now, but it’s cool to watch the clip occasionally and remember HG thrusting his crutch in all those children’s faces. Ah good times…
