Bizarrely cool Japanese shrimp (or cell) commercial (video)

It’s not entirely clear what this commercial is really about.

When I went to translate the Japanese using Google, it was talking about LTE, which is high-speed cell phone standard (coming after 3G).

But this has nothing to do with a cell phone. It does however deal with “fast.” So perhaps that’s it.

Either way, it’s an awfully cool commercial.

In a nutshell, the women fry shrimp in 3 seconds.

The slow-motion photography is great. You see, first they’re floured:

Then covered in egg:

Then bread crumbs:

Then quickly seared:

Here’s the entire video, it is really cool.

    Go for it. I routinely violate Leviticus 18:22.

    Air-cannon launched, batter-fried, quick-seared shrimp…what will they come up with next?

    Stomach’s rumbling. Makes me want to repeatedly violate Leviticus 11:9-12.

    It’s all in aid of a bad pun (top line at 0:56): ebi mo, nettowa-ku mo sakusaku. That is, shrimp and network, both “sakusaku”, which can mean crunchy (for the shrimp) or swift and efficient (for the network).

    I’m guessing that the top foodie restaurants will be serving up cannon shrimp by March, 2016.
