View Full Version : Funny Video: Long or Short?

December 29th, 2008, 09:02 PM
I ran across this on Youtube. Unfortunately, it's in Japanese with no subtitles. But you really don't need them! It's pretty obvious what's going on.

A girl is admiring some "modern" shorter hairstyles on her way to her boyfriends. She's alright, because she has her boyfriend! But when she gets to her boyfriends, she finds another girl in the apartment (with shorter hair!). She slaps the boyfriend, and the scene cuts to her at the hair salon. Short, or long?

You get two parallel universes! One where she cuts her hair, and one where she leaves it long. It's extremely amusing watching all the differences and advantages and disadvantages. And they do it in such a way that they all even out between the two. She even gets the same new guy in both universes, in two very different ways. Very cute!

Such antics as:
How long does it take to get the hair done in the morning?
How to eat soup with long hair?
Using a lint roller to roll up "conspicuous" hair' (Whose hair is this?!)

I don't want to give it all away XD

I think she looks better with long hair. I wish my Japanese was good enough to translate everything for all of you! Buy maybe someone will be able to help us out. I can tell you that "It's his little sister" to help you out at the end.

Bonus: The Intro (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ijibjshJhA), where she's arguing with her hairdresser and stressing out about whether or not she wants to cut her hair. I hope someone can translate the rest, and they're interviews on the street about short and long hair!

Well, I thought I'd give it a try. But with Snail-Up, I should have known. I can't see the video. Perhaps I can glean the gist of it from others. It sounds very amusing!:D

Amusing and cute, but I don't like the perception that short haired girls get less attention from men. Totally not true in my experience.

But a translation would help! -_-

And so many of the "problems" faced by the long haired one could be solved by putting it up!

Though I do love the sleeping behind the hair thing...

May1em: Yeah, I was thinking that with the bit in the car and the lunch scene. Just pin it up. :lol:

But short hair does have the advantage in the morning XD
