You have to check this out! It's the best JET video I have seen yet. It totally just increased my drive to make my own Japan videos too!

What did you like best?

The annoying fat women?
The off key singing?
The dull cliched lyrics?
The shoddy sound and camera work?

that video makes me embarassed to be shortlisted.


if you can get past the homo-eroticism of Rod Stewart, this video is significantly more straightforward and entertaining, and it gets me excited about going to japan:

It's just a very entertaining video. Good for a laugh during finals week.

....wow, I thought people who went on exchange were supposed to speak Japanese rather well. At least I feel better now about never getting to do a foreign exchange when I was a student. :roll:

Even though we have come across a few JET videos on Youtube and such, I am still suprised that there aren't more, especially since JET is such a large program.

Hmm...maybe people are just tagging their videos with the title of their town, location, etc...instead of with "JET" or "ALT."

First video = well done n all, but depressing and stupid. They look proper insane.

Jills vid - Well good, loved the editing too. Liked the fact they didn't include themselves in it so it seemed like it could be anyones experience, awesome.

Frankdux - That film had a really cool feel good vibe to it :D Gotta love 80s music for invoking the emotions!

The Little Gaijin was pretty funny.

That Lost in Translation one was pretty painful. Have those guys ever even heard real spoken Japanese before?

Dude, if that's painful, no, you really don't want to do JET. THAT is a good class. They listen, they don't talk back, and they attempt the exercise. Also, people actually VOLUNTEER. God, that almost blew my mind.

If you think that video is bad, your expectations are freakin' screwy, dude.

Haha, If most classes are like you say, then count me in! That sounds much better!

Here's another "memories" video. Background music is Shimanchu nu Takara. Worth watching just for that if you don't know the song.

EDIT:

I don't think I can be bothered to watch, but there's a video of "a day in the life" of a JET in Oita here. 37 minutes long!

Whatever they've got you on, buddy, cut the dose.

Three weeks of, let's say, uncooperative classes and you'll begging for that guy's "painful" class.

That was the strangest thing ive ever sat through. Now i understand why jet girls get the reputation they have.

Those chicks really need to get out more!

What reputation do JET girls have?

I find them to be most pleasant personally? Or at least no different to girls you'd find on George Street.

May 9th, 2007, 08:51
Although i dont them all very well, all the okinawa jet chicks i do know well are really really cool. I just hear a lot on here about jet girls sitting about munching pringles and talking about how great things were back home and being miserable cos apparently they can't get laid.

Dumb question perhaps but what's george street?

dombay
May 9th, 2007, 10:54
George Street is the main drag in Sydney which is the main city in Australia.

The reason that all this shit propogates around internet forums about jet girls is that jet boys think that they are really clever coming to japan and all the japanese girls like them 'for who they are' whereas the gaijin girls (with whom they share a common culture and language but are less exotic) do not. So they come up with crap about pringles.



So next time you see a sleazy jet guy in the street give him a swift kick to the nuts.

A damning critique of George Street if ever I heard one.

Theres a George Street in Hull and those girls are nothing like the ones there. Nobody was drunk, nobody was pissing/puking in the street in front of 20 laughing blokes , nobody was smashing bottles of spirnoff ice over other peoples heads, nobody was crowded round a fight screaming "leave it Gary! He's not worth it!", nobody was crowded round a fight screaming "Twat the fat fuck!".

Boring bitches.

But to be fair the girl in your profile pic is a fat mess as well. As a big queen I don't think you are in the position to be commenting on how attractive the average JET girl is.

Indeed it is Mr Carter!

Clearly Dombay hasn't been down that way on a Friday or Saturday night for a while.


Around Circular Quay you have the Establishment - where all the hoochies try to pick up on the rich executive banking types. Then you Star Bar (formerly Planet Hollywood), Bar Ace, Pavillion, Jacksons, Brooklyn, Privilledge... are oh so classy! (no skanks there) :smt023

And then you have the super ultra-classy backpacker shitholes like Scruffy Murphy's, Scubar and Cheers... where there seems to be fights every night. And oh! Nearly forgot... my internet cafe, where the delightful young aboriginal ladies will come through and steal your bags on a regular basis.

But wait there's more! around Town Hall you have all the Chavs (know here as Lads or Adlays in pig latin... which yes they actually speak in) and Emo's hanging out (the latter being robbed by the former). Then around the Cinemas all of the try hard wanna be Asian gangstaz. Finally you have all of the try hard wannabies 'cruzin' up and down the gridlocked streets with their bass set to deafen anyone who bothers coming near them.

I'm not sayings Sydney sucks or anything... but George St certainly fucking does. Bad example Dombay!!!!

Wow, that brought back memories of why I don't want to go home! Thanks Tim!

We could talk about Oxford Street (tragic), Home and Darling Harbour (even tragicer) or some other places too if you like.

In the end at least if all our venues suck they aren't boring as batshit like melbourne ones or non-existant like Brisbane and Adelaide ones?

Hi Everyone,

I am the Little Gaijin in the video. I actually live in Onomichi, over the bridge though. We made the film for the 2nd Annual Fukuyama Film Festival, a film festival that my two Canadian JET friends started last year. http://www.letsfilmfestival.com If you are on JET or are coming over, consider starting a Let's Film Festival in your town or city. It's a lot of fun and you may just find your calling

This year's winner - The Blue Man
