Most things are. Here a troupe of Japanese comedians bring an in-game power from Wii role-playing game The Last Story to life.

The power is "gathering" and to illustrate the point, there are comedians like the duo Oriental Radio, Ryo from the comedy group London Boots and what looks to be Kazuko Kurosawa from comedy trio Morisanchuu. It's all pretty self-explanatory. The lady, Kazuko Kurosawa says, "Help me!", and then Ryo pops up and says "gathering" and pulls off the gathering move.

Developed by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, The Last Story is being published by Nintendo and is one of this year's eagerly awaited Wii titles in Japan. The game has not been announced for release in the West, however.

Cheer up, though, we've got Japanese comedians!
