How would this look in reverse? Like...a US airline starts offering flights to several international destinations and says how can we change to a global image and then puts on a Japanese bun wig and tapes their eyes up? Can anyone tell me if in general Japanese people are comfortable with that kind of treatment? I am willing to hear if this kind of thing feels comfortable culturally and is considered good treatment. Thanks!

I also am wondering about the message of this kind of ad. What do you think it is?? For me, it has a lot of the "insider" / "outsider" feeling that one gets used to living in Japan. Of course it exaggerates the racial features of a race which is unpleasant and creates the feeling of "otherness" based on race, but can anyone interpret the message of this'? Is it funny in Japan or not so much and why?
