Watch James Brown Turn ‘Sex Machine’ Into A Ramen Commercial

Miso'n up, miso'n up!

Sometimes the Internet just wants to do us all a solid and bring us a wee bit of curious joy. Today’s such instance is this James Brown ramen commercial, sung to the tune of “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine,” one of his most well-known songs. Timely, given that Chadwick Boseman-fronted biopic about the singer that just came out.

We’re going to go out on a limb and assume this particular incident didn’t make the film’s script. Not because it’s not infinitely interesting (because it is), but more so because it’s James Brown. In a ramen Commercial. Sung to the tune of “Get Up/Sex Machine.” Made in Japan. (Yes, your “Lost In Translation” jokes are very timely and accurate right now, so go ahead and make them.)

And no, we’re not complaining in the least. Because this, if anything, is a gift.
