I was thinking the whole time… “Why didn’t the producers contact Shinji Saito, 13 time world champion?” And what kinda pissed me off is that when asked if Mickey’s a yoyo master, he had to speak in Japanese (which is covered with voiceover translations) despite the fact that he speaks perfect English.
Like, is that how TV producers make things more ‘exotic’? That a Japanese man speaking English is almost never heard of?
Anyway, as a huge fan of Mickey I was impressed. Too bad he couldn’t wear his usual Louis Vuitton sunglasses [presumably asked by producers not to wear branded clothing]
