Few days ago, I posted this image on Tumblr. I think some people wonder about this sim’s gender. He is a male sim. :D
I introduce a Japanese TV commercial film. This commercial film has portray the sarcasm of communication of social networking in Japan.
The title is “Battle with Ria-Jyu” Ria-Jyu is a slang words in Japan. It mean the person who full life at offline. Sometimes, they boast their happy life in Twitter or Facebook. So some people think Ria-Jyu is so noisy. In this commercial film, Ria-Jyu was expressed as Shark.
“Battle with Ria-Jyu”
Observer: Hey look! Ria-Jyu is coming! Everybody! Run away! hurry!
The man on the board: You are Ria-Jyu!
Shark(Ria-Jyu): My girlfriend’s home cooking is the best!
Men in the beach: He is rampaging because he want “Like!( on Facebook)”
Man on the board: Annoying! That’s immaterial to me.
Shark: I didn’t sleep before 40 hours, because I’m in busy!
Men in the beach: There you go again. Vaunt of busy!
Woman in the beach: Look!, Hashimoto is doing “Like!”.
Observer: He(=Hashimoto) is doing “Like!” about anything posts.
Man on the board2: You must do “Like!”. Otherwise you will be disliked by Ria-Jyu!
Man on the board: I’ll never do “Like” except for when I really feel that is nice!!
Ummm… Oversea people may feel strange about this situation on social networking in Japan. (-_-;) But I can understand this situation well.
We call it “Honne and Tatemae”. “Honne” is Real intention, and “Tatemae” is stated reason(superficial). These are kind of social communication in Japan.
