I’ve never been that big into horse racing. Generally, if 70% or more of the action at a sporting event is obscured by trees, it qualifies as fairly lame in my book.
Fortunately, the Japanese are experts at spicing up a mundane concept with the appropriate level of insanity. Proof positive lies in this remarkable YouTube video titled “JAPAN WORLD CUP 3,” which I’m told is some sort of promo material for an actual racing event, and not, unfortunately, a real game you can actually purchase. If it were real, my Memorial Day weekend plans would be dramatically different.
Somehow, after watching this about 30 times, I am still trying to figure out why one of the jockeys in the back is airing out a carpet.
