Saga City "Alien of Ariake" (2015) 2:27 (Japan)

Okay this is freaking awesome. Saga is a city located on the Japanese island of Kyushu. To increase tourism, they did a very tongue-and-cheek monster movie spoof called Alien of Ariake, playing up a Loch Ness-style monster that supposedly lives in the Ariake Sea nearby. The monster in question, warasubo, is actually a common fish otherwise known as Goby. It just happens to like mud and look all kinds of ugly. This sets up Saga City as having a great sense of humor which is quite unusual for tourism spots. Also, the mayor of Saga and local residents all starred in this so that's a bonus. I'd pack my bags and go just based on the humor alone. Love it.
