Saturday Night Live’s J-Pop Skit: Funny, or Too Much?

This week’s episode of Saturday Night Live featured a skit purporting to be a Japanese Pop Culture variety show done by Caucasian Michigan State University students.

Called J Pop America Fun Time Now, the 5-minute skit is an over-the-top sendup of stereotypical Japanese interests, such as anime, j-pop, music, and colorful costumes.

Take a look at the skit below, and let us know what you think. Is this skit “funny” or is it just an obvious attempt to poke fun at Japanese culture?
