Newscaster meltdown -- funny sound file

Postby AJBryant » Sun 05.07.2006 2:14 pm

I had to share this.

I'm on a Russian forum, and someone posted a link to an MP3 that is hilarious.

There's a Russian news announcer who starts off making a report about a sumo bout, and then breaks out in giggles. And then tries to continue -- and he continues to melt down. He moves on to a story about a business consultancy and can't get the laughter out of his system. Oddly, they let him go on for like five minutes -- trying desperately to read the news while cracking up every sentence -- before taking him off.

Even if you don't speak Russian, this is HILARIOUS. I dare you to listen to it without cracking up yourself. (I'm using the fact that it's a sumo report that starts the meltdown as the tenuous connection here. :) )

Tony san, do you speak Russian?
Goals:
1) Have decent proficiency in Japanese, enough to get around/talk/read/write.
2) Visit Japan for a week or so one summer.

Very little, I'm afraid. I caught most of his excuses and "Ahem, well, now..." and a spate of curse words... ;)

If you listen carefully to the first part, you'll hear him talking about the sumo bout, and then he starts to name the wrestlers (Takanohana, Musashimaru, etc.). It seems that the name "Musashimaru" set him off somehow...

Not as funny as the Russian but
maybe more intelligible:
Geek loses it
"I was eating my nuts...."

To Hyperconkugated. Hmmm, "Geek loses it" that's NOT funny. That's stupid humour. ;)
To Coco Newscaster (RBK TV) was reading about Sumo's Competition. But he started to...knock down...and...made a mistakes in words. Hmm. I can't explain. It's a "game of words" in Russian language. :|

taking a wild guess, the somo wrestler probably got his little strap thing ripped off, or he got pushed out of the ring and fell on some old lady.

Andermat-san.
ok, you don't need to explain the meaning of the word or reason. I just want to know which is the keyword, if possible. Maru? or Musashi? If Musashi, 宮本武蔵(Miyamoto Musashi) maybe also ... word. If the word is Maru, Japanese ship/boat names will be very funny to you.

Thanks for the link. I enjoyed that. :D

two_heads_talking-san,
直接訳せない言葉かもしれませんが、どの言葉がおかしいのか分かるとありがたいので、何か分かったら教えてください。よろしくお願いします。

トニーさん。
楽しませていただきました(お礼が遅くなりすみません)。これ、貴乃花vs 武蔵丸の優勝決定戦じゃないかと思います。5年以上前かな。
笑いの伝播っていうのは、おもしろいテーマですよね。
人名や地名が別の国の言葉にとっては非常に笑えるものってたくさんあります。
紹介したい地名・人名がたくさんありますが、自重しておきます。;)
