This is sure to be taken down, so watch swiftly! Last weekend’s SNL featured a new TV Funhouse by Robert Smigel that spoofed anime via competitive hotdog eating champ Kobayashi. Good stuff.
I love how it’s done in the Dragonball Z style (looks like a couple of Dragonball Z baddies make it in there too).
ditto, the toriyama feel add a lot to it.
I watched that laughing that they actually got Kobayashi to play himself.
But just heard the crickets chirping from the audience. Not one of them I think had any idea what the joke was.
Least we know Smigel’s an anime fan.
