Will the real Yumi Shirakawa please stand up?
Ever hear that old saying, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"?
I think this video disproves it.
The great Yumi Shirakawa (Rodan, The Mysterians, The H-Man, etc.) is impersonated in the video below. But what makes this impersonation particularly interesting is that it's done by a man!
Just when you thought Japanese TV couldn't get any stranger.

Oh, and there's also someone trying to imitate Akira Nakao (from the Heisei Godzilla series), but at least his imitator's of the same gender.
