James Brown just loves Nissin Ramen

If like me you love noodles, and love The Funk, and love weird Japaneseness, then these old commercials will surely make you happy. It's the Godfather of Soul declaring his love of Miso-flavoured noodles. Who knew? I always thought JB would have been a collard-greens and chitlins kinda guy myself.

I can't tell you how many times I have watched this one.

Jay Kay from Jamiroquai is obviously nowhere as cool as The Godfather (no one is), but this next one is nice nonetheless, even if only because you get to hear him sing "oh, cup noodle" in Japanese.

In case you want to sing along, here are the words:

Hara hetta x3 (I'm hungry)

Oh, Cup Noodle
Itsutsu taberareru kai? (Can you eat 5?)
Hoka no ja iya yo x2 (Won't take nothing else)
Cup Noodle da yo (It's Cup Noodle)
