The Japanese comedian group Black Mayonnaise


About

Subaru Commercials refer to the MAD videos consisting of the series of TV commercial movies (TVCMs) by the Japanese automobile manufacturing company Subaru[1], which features the Japanese comedian group Black Mayonnaise[2] (Takashi Yoshida and Ryuichi Kosugi) and their signature gags “Heee-Haaah!” (Japanese: ヒーハー) and “That’ just wrong!” (Japanese: どうかしてるぜ, Douka shiteru ze).

This TVCMs have been one of the hundreds of visual resources for parody videos on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) since after it was aired in early 2011.

Origin

This TVCMs for Subaru’s “100,000 Yen cash back” campaign was aired from February to March in 2011. And its plot is that a wife talks how her husband and her elder brother are suprised at the campaign to her friends.

“Heee-Haaah!” and “That’s just wrong!” are not mere catch phrases only in these adverts, but their signature gags and are heard in many TV shows since before. In addition, it’s a famous episode among their fans that Kosugi’s “Heee-Haaah!” was born by getting inspiration from Michael Jackson’s 1983 song “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’”.

Spread

Parody videos which reuse their gags mainly in those TVCMs began to be posted to NND soon after it was aired. Then, many MAD videos in this series began to be uploaded and watched more serially and continually around the beginning of March, 2011, when spring break started in Japanese schools.

As of April 2012, the videos related to their group name (ブラックマヨネーズ, abbr. ブラマヨ) and gags on NND is more than 240. And around 60 videos in them are MADs in this series.[3]
