Yarr! Naomi and I had a wild time as host/fixers for the Norway TV show about Tokyo love culture. At long last, here are video clips (below and on YouTube).

The documentary about Japanese love and pop culture was beautifully shot and edited. In the clips, I show Ari Behn and Per Heimly how to properly bow and greet in Japan. I explain host club culture, and take them to the gaudy Club Ai in Kabuki-cho. We also visit the owner Takeshi Aida and his three giant poodles!
