Sometimes, Bowing Is Very, Very Tricky

In Japan, bowing is important. There are various ways to bow and various meanings for bowing. When newscasters sign off, they always bow.


Recently, anchorwoman Yuuko Aoki's hair got caught in a desk mic while bowing on television. The YouTube has gone viral in Japan, with nearly half a million views.



Aw. I thought maybe she'd start lifting her head up and it'd still be caught, causing her to have to struggle to unhook it, but it just got slightly lifted up by the mic? That's not too bad. Though, it is definitely a little amusing. :)
