Waiting for Nobuhiko Obayashi’s Hausu to play in your hood? Sadly bereft of weird Japanese videos? Here’s a bunch to whet your appetitite.

Obayashi was quite the prolific director, having directed over 30 movies in his career, but he’s also well known for his commercials. One of the first Japanese directors to start the trend of bringing over American actors to sell products, his most famous is a string of commercials for a deodorant/cologne/man-maker called “Mandom” which stars Charles Bronson.

I’ve embedded my favorites- the rest are linked below. Enjoy.
