I actually think it applies to any cross culture effort. Even if a westernized theme was used over in Japan the results would still suck.

Is that originally from Japan or is it just the usual 80's music?

I honestly think he just made it up, but I think he was trying to style if after some "Japanese" styled music video, or something. Hence the "watusi", and other weird references he made.
