Live Action Earth Defense Force Is Hilarious

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is promoting Earth Defense Force 3 Portable with a live action commercial made by B-movie director Minoru Kawasaki. Some of Kawasaki’s famous works include Calamari Wrestler and Executive Koala.

  • Yeah I watched this yesterday, it was too funny.

  • Godmars

    The movie’s already cast I see.

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      What if they used insect repellent?

      • Shark Repellent, anyone?

        • OatMatadoQuatro

          Leave Batman to that

  • I wonder where they found a African American guy with that kind of Japanese accent XD


    Yuuki? XD Really Snow? XD-

    Did he really say kuso in the commerical>? XD

    •  How do you know he’s American? And kuso isn’t exactly considered profanity.

      • PreyMantis

        Hell, how do we even know if he’s African? He can just be a native-born black Asian (they have native dark-skinned people in Asia– look up Aeta, Agta, Ati, Semang, or Mani) for all we know.

  • Jake Deerberg

    And this is why I love this series!

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Dude, it’s that these alien bugs don’t know when to quit?
    Maybe it’s my fault cos in Earth Armageddon I spent shooting myself with a friend.

  • Jordan Ortiz

    Why did the only black guy have to  die?

    • Standard movie procedure.

    Very funny, like a good trash movie. 

    The black guy, named Yuki (snow =P), was the “best” actor. xD

      His name’s written as 結城, not 雪. :V 

      • Eliézer Dos Santos

        I’m talking about what I heared.

        • Leivinia

          But that could mean any of the definitions ゆき has. I mean, might as well have listed ’em all. 

          • Eliézer Dos Santos

            Yeah, japanese is a complicated language. All of the three alphabets. =P
