More Japanese weirdness

When a YouTube film is marked with the warning "This video may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube's user community", one is led to think Wahey! Pr0n!
This mightily peculiar Japanese ad has nothing remotely rude (unless the strange raccoon-like creature is really sporting a pair of gigantic gonads), but there is something inexplicably disturbing about it. Perhaps those viewers who have flagged this video are sensitive to the allegories that have been attached to the Little Red Riding Hood myth.

Hmm... I didn't actually find that disturbing - something to do with having lived in Japan?

And then there's the werewolf thing...once saw a porn film that featured a werewolf. Wasn't a turn on.

I had no idea that Racoons had such large testicles. Well, you learn something new every day.

The racoon-like animal is actually a creature known as a tanuki. And yes, they do have big balls. See more here...

Thank you bcubbins. That really has to be the funniest comment I've ever had. And educational.
Thanks for your interest!
