Those iPods look cool! But there's NO way I'm gonna shake my butt in front of a TV for 10 whole minutes JUST to turn it on! Embarassed

So, and lets see if I got this right, you have to do an "Ass dance" but not actualy use your ass?

Hmmm...people are being asked to do something that would be done in a nightclub during the daytime for a product that will be coming down in price in a few months.

Should make for interesting watching. Hopefully, people with good bodies will do this. Shake it guys! Laughing

Not like that person on the website. Yuck!

Well I guess if you can see that stuff on "Girls Gone Wild", it would only be expected for our R1 distributors to go that low... Laughing

But why bother to post this if the contest ends today?

I was thinking the same exact thing. I guess fair warning is completely out the window, ya know unless you frequent funimation's website...which I don't.

They can probably expect a low turnout for this one. I hope.

I know some girls on Broadway who'd do more than shake their ass for an ipod..

Quote:
People 18 years or older can record video clips of themselves performing Shin-chan (Crayon Shin-chan) ass dances — as long as the videos do not contain actual nudity or lewdness


Wait what? It's an adult contest, but there's no adult behavior allowed?....Then again..considering the population pool they're hoping to get contestants from, maybe they're doin us a favor.

interesting. That said, don't really care for Shin Chan personally, though I'd like the Fate/ Stay Night IPOD. Too bad its only in Japan. meh. . . seems like they always get the cool stuff.

(Note that I mean no disrespect for the Shin Chan series or its fans)

Guess they don't want to see "Fans Gone Wild" even though that's essentially what they are asking for with this contest. Laughing

I would've done the ass dance. >_>

There are more shameful things people do on tv, I'm sure.

Shaking your but in a rhythmic fashion for an iPod without going any further than that...that's all.

Discrimination I tell ya! Here in the US we are only offered a Shin-chan iPod through a strange and lewd contest while in Japan anyone can buy a (much more awesome) Fate/stay night iPod without having to shake any part of their body (necessarily). Oh well, guess I'll put it on my list of things to import Smile

I love how the official contest website says that nudity -slash- lewdness is prohibited. I'm curious as to how you can have an ass dance contest without lewdness xD There are 13 possible winners so if the turnout for the contest is really low, you'd be guaranteed a win xD
