Japan is known for their slightly skewed sense of humor, and this is a perfect example of it. The premise is of a meticulous sushi master, unsatisfied with the quality of his results. Keen on appeasement, his apprentice, played by Japanese pro skater Matsuo Hiroyuki, ventures out with his skateboard, landing tricks like a pro on his “custom” setup – a deck with a kitchen grater retrofitted to the underside.
The chef then transitions from “grating” rails to Japanese daikon radishes, much to the enjoyment of his sushi master and the fine texture of his new ingredient. The video closes with the context of the video for Bank Time in Circle K convenience stores – “if only your ATM banking service could be this ‘smooth.’”
