Ah, Japan! You are a gift that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving... Now you are making a monkey out of a poor chimpanzee? Whatever will you think of…

Fake zombies, frightened children, a laugh track, and sadistically-unhelpful game show hosts. What will the Japanese think of next? [via Buzzfeed]
The character ‘Norton Fighter‘, is the face of Symantec‘s Japanese ad campaign for its Norton 360 program suite.
The creators of Norton Fighter have obviously modeled the character on famous Tokusatsu characters like Kamen Rider and Ultraman. This superhero fights viruses and creepy bots, rescues cute maids in distress, and generally saves the day. Somehow, the Japanese always seem to make stuff more cooler than they really are.
Watch Norton Fighter take on the evil Botlas in this two part video.
