WIN TV turned a 20 minute interview where I STRESSED that I was NOT a member of a club or "Gang" - that what I do is 'cosplay'.... a 'homage' to a street fashion and a uniquely Japanese style of motorcycle customization I like - into a 30 sec segment inferring that the Yakuza is on the Sunshine Coast... and Bosozoku gangs are "wearing their colours" on the Sunshine Coast... I am less than impressed with their reporting and editing... Never let the facts get in the road of a good story huh :P At least they spelt the name right ... and there were some NIIIICE shots of the bike that I can use in my own videos.... but basically WIN TV SUCKS ASS!!!! :P

Stridently anti-Japanese film that attempts to convey an understanding of Japanese life and philosophy so that the U.S. may more readily defeat its enemy. Depicts the Japanese as "primitive, murderous and fanatical." With many images of 1930s and 1940s Japan, and a pretentious and highly negative narration by Joseph C. Grew, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan.
