VAN-sama (Japanese: VAN様) is a respected nickname given to a Vietnamese American gay porn star/performing artist Van Darkholme[1] by the fanatics of Wrestling Series.

His impressive F-word voice in a video is called Fercussion (ファ楽器, Fagakki) as a special vocal percussion and frequently reused in MAD videos in Nico Nico Douga (NND).


Van Darkholme appeared on NND as the first Asian actor in Wrestling Series by the video posted as one of the series on April 21st, 2008[2], which was taken from 1999 American gay porn video LORDS OF THE LOCKER ROOM. This video soon caught much attention among Wrestling Series fanatics because of his eccentric costume and his neat F-word cuss.


Following this, many videos featuring his bondage costumes and fetish play were uploaded continually. Those videos became to the popular sub-series in Wrestling Series named “BONDAGE M@STER”, usually called BONM@S for short.

In those days, he also had another nickname TDN Kosugi (TDNコスギ)[3] or simply TDN. This is because his looks resembled to Kazuhito Tadano[4] who was called TDN in the other online gay porn phenomena A Midsummer Night’s Lewd Dream and Japanese American martial arts actor Kane Kosugi[5] for their sensibilities.


His F-word voice is the essential resource for MAD videos along with Billy Herrington’s Hip Drum, and known as Fercussion (ファ楽器, Fagakki)[6], which is a pun for F-word and Percussion (打楽器, Dagakki). Many of Wrestling Series videos set his Fercussion into their main subject.

Moreover, Darkholme himself gets much respect from the fanatics by his earnest attitude against the business and fetishism told in the interview video titled “Interview with the VANpire”, which was uploaded on October 15th, 2009.[7]


Nowadays, He is usually called VAN-sama respectfully as the true seeker of Deep Dark Fantasies.[8] As of July 2012, the amount of videos ralted to him in NND is more than 900.[9]

Darkholme’s Response

Darkholme noticed his popularity in the MAD video fad by a fan letter, and posted about this to his blog on November 28th, 2009. In the post, he chose the favorite video and seemed to receive his popularity in Japan favourably though he didin’t know why he was called TDN.

I got this email and I thought I share it with you. I had no idea and it’s so funny. I don’t know why the Japanese call me TDN. Can you someone explain this to me? Well, I looked at a bunch of them. It takes a lot of time and effort to put a video like this together. I’m flattered. My favorite one is by Keisuke0000000001 “TDN (Van Darkholme) x Evans X Dj Yoshitaka”. It has pretty much all of my work. You can see it at the bottom of this page.

dear Master Van,

i’m writing you in the hopes of hearing your thoughts on your recent popularity in Japan. there is an entire community (some would call it a universe) devoted to mixing and editing videos you and other pornstars (most notably billy herrington) have starred in. don’t ask me. this universe is known as the Gachimuchi universe. again, don’t ask me. you are known as TDN in this universe. by now you could be dizzy with confusion if this revelation isn’t a huge moonlanding to you.

i scoured your site in order to find something on this, but sadly there was nothing. there was a bunch of interesting stuff to read on your site though. keep it up. you are god.

here are “some” (lol) example videos. there are literally thousands of videos like these on the internet. hearing what you have to think would be interesting for both me and your japanese fans.

And the winner is….


Many NND users exulted to his response, and the video approved by Darkholme in this post, which uses Evans for its music resource, has been watched over 1 million times on NND as a sort of the official MAD video.[11]
