Yum? Apparently, the new overdubbed lyrics are: “I am hungry, I am hungry, I like Cup Noodle, I don’t need other one.” Which, to be fair to the Japanese branch of Cup Noodle Co., aren’t any dumber than the original lyrics. Although, if I had come up with this commercial (oh man, dream a little DREAM!) I would have had him sing this:

Noodles made of virtual insanity
now always seem, to be governed by this cup we have
For noodles, twisting, our new technology
Oh now there is no sound for we all eat noodles underground

But I didn’t come up with this commercial. Because I’m not a GENIUS. (Via Dlisted.)

  1. It makes sense. I mean, I only buy Cup Noodles when I’m absolutely broke and he only does their commercials when he’s down to pennies. Celebrities: they’re just like us!

  2. I prefer the Haddaway commercial
    What are noodles? Baby please eat them, please eat them, right now

  3. He’s just trying to put food on his fuzzy hat for his family.

  4. “Yo Jay Kay, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Ai Otsuka has one of the best noodle videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!”

    • This is not the Samyang Ramen video where Girls’ Generation sings about ramen to the tune of the theme from “Bubble Bobble”, so I’m sorry to say it but you’re backing the wrong horse.

  5. Oh dang it, I forgot about Chicken Noodle soup! Ai Otsuka, please go back to your seat. Young B & DJ Webstar everyone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwMIlGYUZ3g

  6. “For relaxing times, make it Suntory times, with a Cup O’ Noodle on the side.”

  7. I am sad because i know i will never be as great as anything in that commercial.

  8. Mystery has really let himself go.

  9. Jamiropourquoi?

  10. Fear not – Jamiroquai is as relevant as ever… this is just like when George Clooney does an Aston Martin commercial or whatever over there.

  11. Now if there were only a late 90′s alterna-dance group who could help me target that coveted hobo humpin’ demographic…

  12. I’m not sure if this makes me exicited about going back to Japan, or disappointed.

  13. Canned Heat Flavored Noodle

  14. What, no pot noodle hat? Missed opportunity, JK.

  15. Not as good as the reworking of 311′s Down for Kirin Light.

  16. The worst part is that this made me watch the regular video. And then, even worse than the worst, I remembered how much I like this song.

  17. Best New Party Game that Will Only be Played in My Head:


    • Hey NOOD(le), don’t make it bad
      Take some soy sauce and… I’m not even going to finish this because it sucks, I am so so sorry.

      • I’ll be playing at work, so it’ll probably be more like

        Hey soup noodle
        Play that mister noodle
        On the radio, stereo
        The way you taste ain’t bad you know

        Something like that. I work at a chinese restaurant, so there’s a good chance I will be eating noodle soup at the time.

        • i did it all for the noodles [YEAH!]
          the noodles [YEAH!]
          so you can take that poodle
          and stick it up your [YEAH!]
          stick it up your [YEAH!]

          this guy knows what im talking about:

    • Well I dont know why I came here tonight,
      I knew I shoulda just made some rice,
      Rigatoni got me feeling scared
      and I’m prayin they don’t want angel hair,

      Onions to the Left of Me
      Tomatoes To the right
      Here I am,
      Stuck in some Noodles With You
