A Tokyo-based American YouTuber TkyoMe posted a video to his channel featuring himself affixing a GoPro to the side of a salaryman’s forehead on a Yamanote Line train this week.
The video, originally titled “Look at my awesome new video featuring me and a Tokyo train, and then me again”, was taken down due to privacy concerns.
“What’s all the fuss about? He didn’t complain when I stuck it to his head,” YouTuber TkyoMe said in a new video posted online.
The GoPro filmed at least two full round trips of the Yamanote Line from the top of the salaryman’s head while TkyoMe grabbed a few beers at the Hub.
TkyoMe concluded the short video by filming himself brushing his teeth and getting ready for bed.
JR released a press statement today revealing the 38-year-old commuter had actually died from overwork and had been travelling around the Yamanote Line since September.
