Video of Ootoya restaurant employee exposing himself posted online

32 Comments

The restaurant chain Ootoya Holdings has apologized after a video showing one of its employees, wearing a mask and naked from the waist down, was posted online.

The video footage depicted the employee wearing an extraterrestrial mask while naked from the waist down and fooling around with a metal tray that was covering his private parts, Fuji TV reported. He then moves the tray away to expose himself.

According to Ootoya, the Japanese restaurant chain received an email at around 6 p.m. on Feb 16 about the incident after someone saw it online. The following day, an investigation revealed that the individual in the video was, in fact, an Ootoya employee at an Osaka location.

On Sunday, the restaurant posted an apology on its website stating, “We will work hard to prevent a recurrence of such acts in order to restore the public’s trust.” On Monday, Ootoya said at least three employees had been fired.

The video is the latest in a series of incidents involving restaurant and convenience store employees acting inappropriately. Last week, a video posted online showed an employee of convenience store 7-Eleven spitting something into a pot of oden, while a FamilyMart employee was filmed licking items and putting them into bags on the shelf.

If Japanese variety shows are anything to go by, covering your private parts while cavorting around is considered the highest form of art.

That's worrying.

It seems that dead end jobs attract dead end staff.

That's biased. Plenty of high flying corporate bosses and elitists have been caught being up to no good as well.

People have to make a living and they can't all be suits and ties. This guy was an idiot but it's not representative of everyone who works in jobs some people seem to think are beneath them,

If I worked for ¥750 an hour, sometimes, maybe, I would just like to do something crazy. My university end of tests, in my country, about 30 students went skinny dipping in a central fountain. Back in the day...

Sexual predator exposed.

Not typically, predators aren't into exhibitionism, it blows their cover.

Hmm......yet another reason to cook and eat at home!

Creepy...  fire his naked ass!

so what if he exposed himself on vid... he is not cooking ,serving , he is also not taking underskirt photos or molesting children or paying for underage sex or anything similar that many police, gov ,law and high paying politicians and such have been caught doing..

you dont like it, dont watch.. its a prank , thats is it.

You get who you pay for. Hope he didn't disgrace himself with a tiny manhood.

With all the horseplay being reported in the news this incident was just the tip... of the iceberg.

Maybe it's about time for these restaurants to consider hiring hardworking immigrants to fill these works. Seems like Japanese nationals are getting bored with these jobs already. Atleast foreigners will be desperate enough not to risk their jobs unlike these guys.

They already hire foreign people. Nationalities would not make any difference. This is just younger people doing stupid stuff/pranks. It's been happening since forever.

Never try oden before... it's not like it taste bad, but c'mon... how long these things stay in that water, i see some don't even have a cover on top of it

On the other hand, maybe he intended to imply that the food in this shop is so good it is literally "out of this world" and even aliens have to come down and have a try...lol

now if it was an attractive lady showing her bits, would it have had such a bad reaction? either way he should not have had put this on the internet full stop, you can't and I think its disgraceful that you are bringing the company that employs YOU! in to disrepute, this is not acceptable

I mean, if you people have seen how bizarre some Japanese ads are then perhaps you may seriously consider this guy as an announcement proposal for the shop xD

Seriously... "Kids" these days have a major problem when it comes to Social Media, they think it's fun expressing themselves like this in front of their so-called "friends"... but a few years later... it comes back to haunt them!!!! And in Japan, and elsewhere the definition of Kids need revising... when it comes to online mentality.

Even the Amazon Boss, has been caught out using his "personal" account to send explicit material to a friend... He should have at least setup a separate disassociated account for "friendships" which could be dropped at a moment and dismissed as being hacked/not his, and any pictures/content therein, etc, photo-shopped.... this is a high tech CEO with poor personal tech judgement. What a nob! And he wants you to buy his "Alexia" products ???? Geez.... Nob leading the nobs or what?

Folks. Simple lesson here. The internet is a network of connected nodes. When you publish something, it goes from one machine to another, which gets pass on and on between various machines until it reaches its destination... between you and the destination machine are numerous points where your juicy information can be collected, reassembled, and now-a-days potentially decrypted (if its already encrypted) and used against you. And if you think reassembling is hard to do... look towards a recent IGP hack (yes, it was) which redirected all internet traffic through a certain (unnamed...) Country... That was done, to capture a needle in a haystack, whilst the rest of the World then thought it was simply a configuration error... hah! Buzz.. Wrong....

Nothing is 100% secure upon the internet, no matter what, people will try to tell you. Even your IP phone calls... which now are where your mobile operators diverting your calls to... are not secure.

When you base your security upon an encryption methodology that do not understand, you are essentially placing your company upon a Cliff edge. As soon as that encryption is broken - your Company will loose its luster. And, when someone points you towards how improbable that it is, that someone would break the encryption, you still need to worry about the improbable, since that's your 100% loss.

In general, the best option is to keep a low profile, use different IDs for different purposes, diversify your risk. Avoid using your mobile phone for 1:1 emails on subjects that may be used by the Tax man, or the Media, or particularly of anything concerning National Security issues....

I guess he picked the wrong baito, he belongs in some other industry xD...

I didn't realize Ootoya was a snake cafe.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

ootoya is basically a crappy japanese fastfood variety ... ( granted better than all the western imports) . so not suprising they would hire all sorts of clowns, pay is also dirt low.. so why not supplement it with some youtube prank income... its not like that foods value can go any lower anyway

Hmm they partially started hiring indeed and have you heard any news about foreign workers doing these same pranks? Foreign workers especially from 3rd world countries without permanent visas are more desperate and will not risk doing these kinds of nonsense as they don't want to be sent back home.

If you expose it, you lose it. That is the law.

Company should sue him and let him know how much "insult" costs.

From now on, I’m not going to eat oden at convenience stores. You never know what’s in it.

But hey, this kind of 'entertainment' may be an expanding benefit that will be passed on to we consumers depending on foreign low-skilled human capital stuck in low paid jobs with a 5 year 'career' plan.

Good times ahead ;-)

By analyzing the photo carefully it seems that this man is impotent, because the masked position showing his chinchin is still downward, given the excitement he had.

I try to avoid these places anyway.

Who knows what other kinds of nasty things he's done (or will do).
