Japanese Man Contorts Face To Make The Alphabet

Japanese Man Contorts Face to Make the Alphabet

Kouki Watanabe isn't your typical Japanese university student. He has a special skill: He can make the alphabet with his face.

On a recent episode of Osaka television show Detective! Knight Scoop, the 21-year-old Watanabe showed off his "kamen arufabetto" (顔面アルファベット), or "face alphabet". The show specified that this was the English alphabet (英語のアルファベット), with each letter called out in English for Watanabe to perform.

While in high school, he discovered he could contort his face into the letter J. And from there, he attempted to complete the rest of the alphabet. However, he's still unable to do N and Z.

    These are the faces most people make when trying to comprehend a Bashcraft article...

      Again, not enough ability to like your comments more than once.

      while this article in particular is bloated to hell, there is room for japanese culture on this site due to this, courtesy of Wikipedia
      In modern Japanese slang, the term otaku is mostly equivalent to "geek" or "nerd".[6] However, it can relate to any fan of any particular theme, topic, hobby or form of entertainment
      And while the managers of Kotaku pin the site as "The Gamers Guide" it also branches out to cover pop culture, some tech, interesting stuff tangentially associated with games and so on.

      But still there is no excuse for this article, if it had only one or two of the shit load of gifs it contained, and links to the rest then maybe you could pass over it but...

      I love that I posted pretty much the exact same thing as you -- perhaps even phrased a bit nicer -- but my comment was "deemed inappropriate" and removed. Good to know they know what's appropriate for Kotaku.

    I can't help but imagine the horror that would occur if this guy ever made it on to Sesame Street.
