I Don't Understand Japanese TV

Is it a language tape or an exercise video?

I think it is an instructional video: "If you are traveling in the U.S. and are mugged by two men, here is what you do."

This was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Soooo strange. I agree with Red. But what the aerobic dancers have to do with it . . . mysterious. Maybe in the late 1980s there was a study showing that you could memorize phrases such as "Spare me my life" easier if they were accompanied by a highschool cheerleading routine?

I think my favorite part was the cop in the leather outfit. You see that all the time in the states. Well, maybe in P'town.

Actually, I liked the guy in the suit with the bandana around his mouth, and the other guy with the tips of the bandana tied under his nose, but totally exposing his face. That's totally what English-speaking robbers look like.

And what happens if someone is robbed by one man? Or three? How will they communicate with the officer?
