Before you ask how this has anything to do with anything we cover, I’ll just note that it’s a Japanese video game commercial. Which basically explains away any questions you might have, like Jake in Chinatown.
I’m not sure what Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Airou Village DX is about, or why it involves cats wearing hats shaped like cats wearing hats. That said, I’m impressed at how the headwear was put in place, and imagine the freshly scarred hands of several wranglers behind the scenes.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
