ONLY IN JAPAN: Death to Mr. James

I was going through some of my old iPhone pics and found this picture which i loved because it was the end to Mr. James. The campaign had ended and he was tossed away, thank god!

Mr. James was for the McDonalds Nippon All-stars limited edition burgers last summer. The character of Mr. James was seen as negative to foreigners, with the overweight glasses wearing white guy was speaking pooly pronounced Japanese. Many foreigners living in Japan, including me did not like this representation, showing this man as the face to foreigners living in Japan.

Here is an extended commercial of Mr. James in all his poor nihongo glory
