Usain Bolt: The Japanese Reenactment

We Asians have a wide range of interests, including doing AP Calculus homework, illegally drag-racing souped-up Honda Civics, and collecting insanely pornographic manga. Now, we can add another to the list: Unnecessarily reenacting the exploits of internationally-known sports figures.

First, there was the Chinese computer-generated video of Tiger Woods' automobile mishap, and now, we have the Japanese reenactment of Usain Bolt beating a bowlegged white guy in a race. (But why does the loser get a medal? And what's up with Japan's love of blackface?)
