Asian Safer Sex PSA Targets US and Japan “You Can Still Cum, On My Tum Tum”

This safe sex PSA does not contain any new information, but the lyrics to the song are rib-ticking hilarious!

American director Bryan Jackson collaborated with a group of Japanese artists to create a safer sex PSA. CalledLittle Taiko Boy, this short film is intended to be used in both the United States and Japan and it’s an interesting mix. Part sexy soap with bath house hookups, dark alley meetings and romantic trysts, it also pulls in crazy images of Christmas, Shinto mythology, drag and Japanese gay culture. Further adding to the mix is the soundtrack, which AsiansOnFilm.com describes as “a safer-sex parody of the American Christmas carol The Little Drummer Boy interspersed with the slow rumble of a traditional Japanese taiko drum that sounds like a massive throbbing heart beat. Contrasting elements weave both modern and traditional music with images of East meets West.” The website adds that this video was made through a grant from Art Matters, “a foundation created to assist artists who make art with the intention of breaking ground aesthetically and socially.” Check it out and let us know if you think the film makers succeeded at their goal.
