Japanese Snowstorm of Destruction and DOOM!

So, because Martina is out playing with her friend Jackie since yesterday’s TL;DR, we don’t have a new WANK to show you. But, never fear! We have something that we do want to share. Namely, our Japanese footage, which – luckily for us – was approved to be released at the same time.

Why approved so late, you might ask? Well, it’s because the project we had going at the time fell through a bit, and is now cancelled altogether. Too bad! It was looking out to be quite cool. Fortunately for us, while we were there in Japan we filmed a lot of fun stuff on the side as well, which is what you’re going to see here. Really, when is there not fun stuff to film in Japan? I’ve never gone and been disappointed.

You’d think that we might have been disappointed, considering the fact that, this one weekend that we went to Japan we brought with us THE WORST SNOWSTORM IN DECADES. Seriously, it was insane. It was a big snowstorm, even by Canadian standards. Also, mind you, this was soon after we returned from Canada, in which we brought to Canada the freakish Ice Storm as well as -40 weather the day of our meetup. Just saying. Our luck with the weather and traveling ain’t too great. You need a snowstorm, guise? Let us know. We’ll come by and bring one to you.

We still had great memories of our time in Shibuya. We walked all the way to Meiji Temple, which, at first, seemed like a really far walk, but now that we’ve been to Tokyo a few times we’re actually starting to feel comfortable there, you know? We took a shortcut, followed our Apple Maps all the way there, and different roads started connecting in our minds and making sense. You know when that happens? When you’re new to a city, and you spend some time on one street, and then time on another street which is far away, but when you find how the two of them connect your mind bursts open with a WHOAAAA. Guise? You know what I’m talking about, right? Well, that happened this time in Shibuya.

Can I also say: I really like this video. It doesn’t have a coherent theme to it. We’re just playing around and having fun in Tokyo. It’s not like we’re going to one specific place and goofing around. We’re just enjoying different things in our trip, from the snow to the food to the toys to the face masks. We really enjoyed ourselves here. This video really feels like how it was back when we started vlogging, you know? I hope you liked it as well. It made us laugh a bit. Also, TOTALLY love the slow-mo camera on the iPhone. It’s not pro-level, but damn it looks nice sometimes!

We’ve got some blooper footage as well. Martina made a song, just for you. Get ready to make it your new ringtone. It’s so…good?

And, on that note, this will be the last of our footage from our Japan trip. We’ve literally gone through all of our Japan WTF items and the snacks we bought. Now that we’re done with this footage, we’re done with it all! Back to normal Korea stuff! Well, not that normal. Next week’s WANK is going to be one of the biggest of our lives. Extremely important. Don’t miss it. Seriously: it’s one of the biggest announcements we’ve ever made. Click on this button below so you don’t miss out!

  1. Some of the shots in this video were really… lovely. ^^ Of course I enjoy you’re videos in-studio (the AWESOME EYK STUDIO!) and in-food-places, but seeing some of your footage from the temple reminds me of the skill you guys have for cinematography-ish stuff… (Does that make any sense? It’s a compliment- really! ^^) Any who- great video! I like the one’s with the vlog-vibe, getting to join the Team while you go on adventures. Keep up the splendid work!

  5. I live in Wisconsin and I can get authentic homemade ramen any time I want. In my town we have a real Japanese chef who moved back here with her American husband after their restaurant in Japan was destroyed by the tsunami. She does everything homemade and it is glorious! !! She makes her own ramen, udon, and soba noodles. Yum!

  7. HAHAHAHAHAHHAAH HOW IS THIS SO HILARIOUS

    Btw, not a lot of people can pull of a closeup like the one at 8:50 but you are looking FAB, Martina. Is your skin naturally flawless or is it the magic of BB cream? I think you did a video about it a long, long time ago… *strokes beard pensively*

  8. Martina has something in common with Dara of 2NE1, she loves/is addicted to Coco Curry. She must have it every time she’s in Japan, haha. It’s too bad the plans didn’t work out. :( I have a feeling it was with some Japanese idols or youtubers..

  13. 8D I’m not the only weirdo who says Shibuya like that! *happy dance* But, I’ve seen worse snow then that…. I live in the very northwest of Washington, so when we visit a gas station on a way to a hike, and the gas station is literally covered in snow to the point where it looks like a pile of snow with doors, not a building…. you know the winter is good lol

  14. Nearest CoCo Curry is a 32-hour drive. ROAD TRIP!!

    Also, I’ve only seen the first two episodes of AoTitan so far, but I already dislike Eren. Of course, it could be because I had the ending spoiled for me by the blasted internet. Grar.

    Aaaanywhoo, I really liked this video! It made me want to go to Japan and just wander around and eat ALL the foods!

  15. Last time you two mentioned CoCo Curry, I checked their website and saw they have locations in the Los Angeles area, followed your suggestions and went.

    OMG GUYZ SOOOO GOOOOD! DROOOOOOOL! Now I’m the terror of all my friends and family as I drag everyone there to have curry. My husband thinks I’m crazy, but I think he’s more crazy as last time he only got the pizza curry naan bread thing instead of a plate of curry. OMG the cheeese curry droool cry!

  16. You guys, I say that Nasties should band together and present Simon and Martina with a lifetime supply of CoCo Curry and Ramen. I don’t know how we would achieve this, but there must be a way. They would love us forever :<

  18. Stop torturing me! My food has been making me sad all week, I’ve got three sick cats and now all I want is food from the other side of the planet. Boo.
    However, it looks like y’all had a blast despite the weather. I love these videos, I love all your adventures!!

  19. I’d also love to hear your thoughts on Attack on Titan so far, who you like/don’t like…besides Eren lol (though I’m a firm believer that you should read the manga before watching the anime). That, and Once Upon A Time (MAH FAVS SHOW)!

  22. Okay, I’m a hugely skeptical person, but even I fell for your joke. It really helped that you made it seem like that pension that you’ve talked about a few times before. Oh my gosh I was so excited but then I realized what was happening. Ugh you got me good. xD

  23. I actually kind of like Eren ;P I guess I have to try coco curry when I go to japan! I have a question tho: is the vegetable coco curry vegetarian? also when you eat ramen do those places have vegetarian ramen? (like broth included)

  24. Blarg! You guys had me going about the GD thing! No one fooled my on April fools day but you’re straight lace faces got me this time.

    Glad you guys still go to go and enjoy Japan despite the insane snow storm. Sucks that the project you were there to work on fail through. It’s going to be like that room in the studio, a mystery to us forever! ;)

    BTW, did ya’ll buy a duck bill for Spudgy?

  27. Attack on Titaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!! *__* I agree, Simon! Eren whined gets pampered by Mikasa a lot. He keeps saying he wants to kill titans but until the end, he was still weak ugh D: He should go to Taeman and learn how to be a man -_-” Martina likes potato girl? TuT Who’s Simon’s favourite? Levi heichou ftw :B

  29. Geez I’m just surrounded by people telling me how amazing Coco Curry is, but there is none here in Montreal (Q_Q”) *sob* it’s on my bucket list!

    Too bad the project was cancelled, now I’ll never know what it was (and after all that suspense!) Glad you were able to enjoy yourselves though, looks like you had a blast despite the horrible weather!

  30. those slow mo shots looks great! u should use more of it in your future videos. and i should remind myself not to watch your videos in fullscreen mode, esp wanks and fapfaps… those handheld cam shots are actually making me dizzy…

    • Yeah, this was all shot on the iPhone. Walking with it is a bit more difficult, since we don’t have a proper rig for it or anything.

      2 years ago
      • yeah i understand the shakiness. if you could in future wanks and fapfaps, try not so turn the camera around too quickly, the shaking is fine but the sudden turning of the camera is what makes people dizzy most of the time.

        i have to say again those slow mo shots are superb. i love looking at them, especially when u shot the pedestrians crossing the road.

  33. Great WANK! I like this vlogging style even though I get a bit sick every time I watch one because the camera shakes too much x) Worth it! I’ll be in Japan in 2 weeks and I’m so gonna try Japanese Coco Curry. And eat lots of Ramen, too.

    And Simon is right, Eren sucks! Such a whiny baby, booh~
    Also, Martina, where is your black shirt from Day 1 from? And your watermelon-socks? I love your style <3

  39. I was living high up in the Nagano mountains when the snowstorm hit. It was like 4 feet overnight and didn’t stop. Almost everyone in my town is over 50, but they are tough old farmers and worked from before dawn till after dusk for a week to clear the roads. We had a few tractors, but mainly had to clear the roads by hand. I felt like the biggest wuss knowing that my 70 year old neighbors were out in the snow at midnight while I just wanted to snuggle in my house all day and night and wait for the snow to melt. XD
