Who Is Joji?
Joji is an interesting artist we had never heard of before (’cause we are Old) As a musician he either records under the name Pink Guy, or as Joji, they are very different from eachother. Also: he is George Miller and Filthy Frank. Yes! If you visit TVFilthyFrank on YouTube you’ll find out even more characters: we did and decided Joji is our favorite, but the others are more funny in an absurdist way. This multi-talented performer has been at it since 2008 and has a 7.8+ million subscribers, according to wikipedia.

Brrr….but; the fact that Japanese Culture is so, so different from the Western one, becomes evidently more clear when watching the interesting Vice flick below. (don’t be alarmed by this post we’re fine, doing very well actually! xoxo)
