It's Cute When People Ruin Live TV

Ruin? Sorry, I meant make it better. In an NHK broadcast on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a staffer accidentally walked into frame and into Japanese internet fame.

Throughout the day, images of this incident have been appearing on various Japanese blogs and 2ch, the country's biggest forum.

It's getting remixes and YouTube tributes (here and here).

Of course, the GIF version above is an endlessly looping cycle of embarrassment.

    Huh. It just doesn't seem that funny.

      BS! Everything out of Japan is amazing and totally relevant to a gaming blog!

        I can't imagine why they'd post something about Japanese culture to a blog about games and Japanese culture.

          From the "About" page:

          "At Kotaku Australia, we’re carefully trying to build a reputation for creating the strongest, most engaging content surrounding games and gaming culture.

          We cover the Australian gaming industry with a team of award-winning local journalists, and localise the best posts from the US, making sure to eliminate what’s irrelevant for Aussies."

          I don't see shit about stupid crap from Japan that has SFA to do with gaming.

            Kotaku AU is a localised version of Kotaku US, which is a blog site covering gaming and Japanese culture. What you quoted covers content written by AU authors, but the site also localises a lot of content from the US site. Why do you think the site is called Kotaku?

              So what you're saying is that this is the best content from the US site? You may also be interested in this excerpt from the About page for the US site: "Thank you for reading Kotaku, a news and opinion site about games and things serious gamers care about."
              Not, "Thank you for reading Kotaku, a news and opinion site about games and Japanese culture and things serious gamers care about."

              Also, this has nothing to do with the site's name.

                The about page on the US site was updated a month ago, before that it made express mention of Asian culture. You'll notice on the US site that there's a section called Kotaku East, and if you read through that section you'll see they've been doing articles on anime, Japanese culture and such for years. And yes, the site's name matters: it contains the word 'otaku' intentionally.

                Why you're arguing this is beyond me. This is how it's always been since Kotaku AU first launched. If you don't want to read articles about Asian culture then don't, but don't whine that they're not a normal part of Kotaku - they've been here from the start.

      Sometimes kotaku is more quantity than quality.

    I randomly turned on the TV and saw that happen actually. Laughed and wondered if anyone else did, twitter lit up about it haha

    Quick! Everyone debate whether the people getting paid to do the thing they do should be doing it!
