Oi Polloi

Lost in Translation

After another long day of gulping glass after glass of ice tea cunningly disguised as whiskey in a stuffy Japanese sound stage, Bernard Marshal watches the sun set over the Tokyo skyline. He sighs, thinking regretfully, “How did I end up here?” 

Winding up in Japan by mistake might sound a bit daft, but airports are confusing places, and Tokyo does sound a fair bit like Torquay. 14 hours later, and Bernard here was touching down in the hectic core of the Rising Sun. 

With an empty stomach and nowhere to go, he did what anyone would do in his situation: impersonate Tommy Lee Jones and get a job shooting Japanese whiskey commercials.

The hours are long and the work is tough, but at least he gets to wander around in fancy Hokusai-inspired shirts in his time off. Admittedly, it’s not Devon, but then again, what is?
