Japan Resorts To Teenage Girls In Short Skirts To Get Their Stocks Up

Tyler Durden's picture


While the full court press propaganda express in Japan's media that 'Abenomics' is working may be flagging a little in the face of the recent 20% collapse in equity prices, there appears no limit to how low they will stoop. It is not the first time you girls have been used to promote the benefits of buying Japanese bonds (as we discussed here), but, as The Telegraph reports, a four-member band of 16-year-old Japanese girls will be raising (and lowering we suppose) the length of their skirts based on the Nikkei 255. The band - Machikado Keiki Japan, which roughly translates as "street corner economic conditions", debut single - Abeno Mix (seriously!) - has karaoke references to quantitative easing and construction bonds.




Via The Telegraph...

To get an idea of how Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, is faring in his quest to lift his country out of two decades of stagnation, look no further than the skirts of the girl group Machikado Keiki Japan.


The band, whose name translates roughly as "street corner economic conditions", became a bellwether for the health of the world's third biggest economy earlier this year when they promised to shorten their skirts every time the country's stock market made significant gains.


The four-member group's novel economic indicator has raised a few eyebrows – not least because one of the members is a 16-year-old schoolgirl – but there is no faulting their interest in the fortunes of the Nikkei 225 stock index.



Their debut single, Abeno Mix – complete with unlikely singalong references to quantitative easing and construction bonds – takes its cue from Abenomics, an ambitious programme of fiscal stimulus, monetary easing and structural reforms that its chief architect believes will lift Japan out of 20 years of deflationary purgatory.

i've heard of freedom fighters, i take it these are freedom fuckers.

i was pissed about the t-shirts, until i realized they said 15,000, and then i realized the momo chasers are right. abe just isn't ambitious enough.

and lastly, i wasn't sure who was going to play axis and who was going to play allies this time around, this has led me to believe china will be the ones defending civilization.

What is weird is they have not had the unAsian plastic surgery.  I think William Banzi posted some pictures of young women in South Korea (?) beauty contest where they all had plastic surgey that de-Asianizes them.  They all looked alike. Really weird.  I think it was SK.

I share your concerns, but apparently their parents aren't worried, as they know Abenomics means they'll all be wearing ground-dragging bell-bottoms just in time for the fall weather.

In a related matter, Bernanke just vowed to avoid shaving his beard until unemployment hits his target, prompting ZZ Top to file a lawsuit.

I am a mother, I meant what I said-- child abuse.

1. The girls are too young for this sexualizing. And the men they are supposed to be appealing to are too old. Get some real women to do this if you are going to do it. 

2. These girls lower standards for all girls. Obviously they are to be emulated.

3. The girls do not know what they are singing about, yet they are being pressured to sing about it any way. 

4. The girls' futures are being screwed by QE and all government policy that postpones dealing with an unsustainable economy.

You are too angry to talk to. We have always been civil in the past when we have disagreed. I always enjoyed that, enjoyed talking to you.

You have gone postal on me, I have no clue why, I have done nothing to you, it came out of nowhere. 

I wish you the best, I suspect you have a lot going on right now. I do not hate you or even dislike you, there is no way I am going to let you "punch me" into a position where I will be abusive to you. That is not our history.

Go back to circa 1977 (!) and The Runaways from So Cal with Cherie Currie singing.  They really only played with her as the front person in Japan probably because she is wearing lingerie.  Note - they were all about high school age of 16 or 17. I think the band manager would have been arrested for child abuse even in So Cal with that outfit.

That is a young Lita Ford on lead guitar with brown hair and hot pants and Joan Jett in red leather on the left.  I think only in Japan - they could get away with this. I like Japan and the Japanese but they are seriously F'ed Up people.

There was a recent movie about The Runaways with Jett and Currie being involved. They cut the other girls (women) out of the movie aka $$$

Sorry but all I got from that was


2. Inversion of logic. This is the 10000th such teenage girl pop band in the past 20 years and now they've crossed the line!!!

3. Students do not what they are learning about, yet they are pressured (to put it mildly) to learn it anyway. Exactly how many people in the world are qualified to speak, or sing, about economic issues? Age is not a relevant factor. The extremely geriatric know as little about economics as newborn babies. I am more offended that CNBC presumes to be a legitimate and honest provider of economic news and analysis than I am by some teenagers who make no such claims to objectivity or correctness. Both are ignorant, but the latter may be forgiven, whereas the former may not; both are pressured in nearly the same ways.

4. Everyone's future is being screwed, roughly in inverse proportion to their age. Being an accomplice to your own murder is a story as old as humanity. Indoctrination of youth? Unethical in the extreme - and a universal feature of every society in human history.

The really funny thing is, I don't disagree that this is a nauseating propaganda stunt designed by callous and manipulative old men. I just don't feel the need to resort to irrelevant and fallacious reasoning to justify my position. As if this was the only instance of an otherwise pure-as-driven-snow culture using young people to promote an unethical agenda.

Do you get this offended when young men are sent to kill and die without even the possibility of justification, on a tyrant's whim? When children, of any gender, are raised to believe in and propagate blatant and vicious lies and mistruths, and to have no concept of sympathy or empathy for the people upon whose protracted suffering their lifestyle is predicated?

Is that child abuse? Or is it only child abuse when it perfectly conforms to your 21st-century highly-educated white-collar left-of-center Americentric Protestant-derived criteria?

More than anything, I don't want my son sent into fraudulent wars to make money for banksters. I think there should be a draft, maybe more people would wake up to the craziness if they had literal "skin" in the game. If everyone's son, nephew, boyfriend, uncle, or even daughter could be drafted, we might look at this whole war bullshit more critically.

I think all of what you list is child abuse. This instance just kind of jumped out of the screen at me this particular moment. I have not been aware of other groups of children being forced to sing and strut in a sexual manner to float the Dow. But we are not as deep into the doo doo as Japan is, maybe we will see the US doing this with boy or girl bands before it is all over.

Understood. But they won't stop the wars because they can justify the killing by saying the soldiers are "volunteers." Make it so everyone can be put in this position and they won't be so eager to throw away those lives because more people will object. 

No wars is the best answer. We can't get there from here until everyone is threatened by it.

Remember this is from the same country that brought you SUKI (tm), The New World Religion (tm).  A major international religion with almost three million members worldwide.  Their actual slogan is, "motherfucking religion".  Although it seems that Japanese  have a bit of a problem on that front given the low birth rates.

Yes it would, in what we consider to be honorable.

But you have to understand something else, we look at this from western eyes...age of consent in Japan is 13.

Its wrong of course on a host of our western levels, the mental capacity of children, sexual maturity, subordinate predation etc...but, quite legal in many places.

And we are on the same page, being legal and being whats right, can be two very different things.

Age of consent in most prefectures is set much higher than the national AoC of 13. In some it is even higher than 18, so the claim that the "AoC in Japan in 13" is more than a little bit misleading.

Also I somehow am not feeling any rage at seeing a 16 year old in a short skirt, but that's just me. I would hardly characterize it as abuse for any other reason than teaching people bad economics.

Toddlers in Tiaras is much more abusive than some Japanese Idols. The rape rate in Japan is also a tiny fraction of what it is in most western countries.

Keep acting like you come from a morally superior society when the society you come from is even more morally bankrupt than Japan's will ever be.

The REPORTED rate of rape in Japan is very low.  I do not trust Japanese rape statistics.  They are as suspect as the Japanese suicide statistics; a great many of those "suicides" are actually homicides that Japanese police are not motivated to investigate or solve.

Until very recently there was NO minimum age of consent in Japan; there was no way to prosecute perverts who followed little girls in parks.  Japan was pressued by world opinion into enacting a minimum age.

Japan is a seriously sick society.  How much have you read about their "untouchable" class?  Oh, you haven't heard of it?  I assure you all Japanese people have.  And I'm not talking about the Ainu.

In any case, the proof is in the pudding; Japanese women do not wish to reproduce.  It could just be the microscopic size of Japanese male sex organs, or it could be that everywhere they look they seek sick porn being devoured by nasty men.

Yep the usual excuse, "but but they just aren't reported!"

And then you don't give any evidence to back this up.

Unless you mean pre-wwii I have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. People get the police called on them for looking at some girl the wrong way.

As far as the "untouchable" class, lol compare to any western country and it barely even looks like an issue.

Oh and re the reproduction thing, that's more about males not giving a fuck as far as I understood it.

Where do you get your info about Japan? I've actually been there.

If Japan wanted to use sex appeal to sell their bonds, this is the wrong way to do it, unless you're targeting the old men / gaijin pedophiles (yeah, we see you).

If you want the hikikomori to buy, you sell it like this. Or use Hentai / post into the local MMORPGs, but ZH has standards (and I think, quite accurately, some of the almost-naked child avatars would probably break US law), so I won't be going there. Japan is so fucked, it doesn't even understand it's own internal marketing on sex.

Look at what South Korea did to support it's industry. They literally sold off their young girls into sex slavery. Now they can't keep the women around in that country, and they only want the Korean men for their money.

I find the concept of fucking someone who's coerced, a slave or being paid for it bizarre. It's the epitome of inner weakness to me.


Then again, I grew out of the concept of torturing small animals when I was young and growing, and never had to prove it to myself. But who I am to judge weakness?

Interesting that traditionally ( a bow to Mrs. Watanabe) Japanese housewives control the household finances. So unless Mrs. Watanabe is actually a dyke-san, I think that this campaign is directed at entirely the wrong audience. Unless of course Mrs. Watanabe approves of her granddaughter being used to pimp the interests of crazy old men.

Yes, exactly.  If you want to sell something financial in Japan, you're selling it to middle aged women.  Not to disgusting old pervert men with tiny p*****.

The Japanese have sex far less often than any other nation on the planet (check any of the Durex surveys); what a surprise.  I doubt these 16 year old girls are really going to enjoy sex much in future years, after having to deal at this age with a bunch of nasty old dudes.
