This is positively the craziest phone commercial we've seen

Posted: , by Victor H.

Asia, a vast continent, home to the world's two most populous nations, China and India, is also the home to some very different sense of humor than we have established here in the West.

We have all been perplexed by it for years now: Japanese weird things, Korean pop culture, and all of that often made in China.

Well, this time it is China and local brand Xiaomi, a company known for its great value-for-money Android phones and custom MIUI interface, that shines with weird creativity in this latest commercial. And yes, it's weird, and sure, it's a ton of fun.

Even though, we just got official confirmation from the company's global VP and ex Googler Hugo Barra that Xiaomi will not bring its phones to the United States in 2017, we can't help but kind of want them. Well... at least bring your ad team over here, Xiaomi, they seem to be doing a great job standing out!

Silly enough that it was fun. I don't know that it would make me want to buy a product, but I enjoyed it.

The Japanese group in this commercial is called World Order. They have their own Youtube channel. They have been to various countries already, including China,India,UK.

This is the Youtube channel: watch?v=_mkiGMtbrPM (add youtube dot com/ before this). World Order- Have a nice Day is also very nice video to watch (shoot in Japan)

The leader is Genki Sudo, a bone fide badass mixed martial artist. The dude even fought Butterbean (and won).

I love this group. I have been a fan of theirs for many years. You all should check out their youtube channel. They do some awesome stuff with their music.

The info you posted is more interesting (and meaningful) than the PA-article. Thank you very much for the info.

Never knew they even copied the Apple Store theme. Hope there is a genius bar inside.

"Well, this time it is China and local brand Xiaomi... that shines with weird creativity in this latest commercial". Victor, they are Japanese. Did you just assume they're all Chinese because of the looks?
