PLEASE THINK OF ME. HELLO THIS IS WATANABE OISKKCGM<> GOINNOIDGM DSKELK LKD EOHTCK (the sound of a second truck coming up on the first and both trucks trying to out yell the other)
Have you ever been so annoyed you threw a pair of pants at your wall? I hadn’t either… until this campaigning season. There are apparently 3 people (possibly more) running for office, two women and a man. For the past week and a half they have been driving around town blasting their bullhorns, and telling everyone to come vote for them. They start at 8 in the morning, and go till 9 at night.
They are so loud, for a country of people who are generally so mindful of community peace, I am very surprised this is their method of campaigning. I don’t see anyone interacting with the trucks, aside from children holding their hands over their ears, and adults staring as they let the DEMON HELL BEASTS, I mean trucks, go by.
The campaigners are clearly amused by themselves, especially when two trucks find each other in town. At one point yesterday, the man and one of the women passed each other in town near our house, they both just started yelling their own names as loud as they could, it was so loud our whole house rattled.
Keep an eye on the news, if you hear about some crazy person steeling megaphones, and putting them on posts around her house like trophy heads, it wasn’t me…
Here's a youtube video of what it sounds like. (My phone partially muted it though because it assumed it was background noise)
Just to make myself feel better, I looked up other foreigners driven mad by Japanese megaphones:
