If you're a true international foodie, you've probably heard of Calpico - or Calpis, as it's known in its native country of Japan. Calpis is a popular soft drink made with a splash of milk to enhance its trademark sweet yet tart flavor.
The Calpis company recently came out with a 15-second commercial that is so bizarre that I am taking more than 15-seconds out of my day to tell you about it. Trust me. You're going to want to see this.

The story begins with two rival samurai armies, which really has nothing to do with soda, but is still pretty darn amusing.

And right before things start feeling too real...

They shout something that can be roughly translated to "LOOSEN UP!!!!"

Still unsure what this has to do with soda, but who's complaining really? Definitely not me.

My favorite part is this one samurai's epic Disney princess-worthy hair flip. (Yassss, queen-sama!!! Get itttt!!!)

You can check out the whole commercial above. Give it a watch, and then let me know:

Are there any other international commercials that had you going WTF?! Feel free to share!
