    I think my vagina needs this bidet.

    ahahaha, Korean commercials crack me up… btw, all Korean commercials are pretty exaggerated like this, whether it be about pizza, soft drink, or bidets.

    How can the previous commentor bring up pizza at a time like this? No dinner humor at the potty!

    Thanks! I needed a laugh this morning!! ;)

    The first thought I had was that this was really twisted then it dawned on me that this was either a political statement on “water boarding” or a new kind of aversion therapy to use on new puppies when they take a dump in “no dump land”.

    Man have I been starting my mornings off ALL WRONG ;)

  • Denise

    My brother actually has one of these in his home in Seattle. He loves it! I tried it and thought it was weird. I jumped up when the water first hit my “gennies”. Plus, it took way to long to blow everything dry. I’m sticking w/good ole fashioned T.P.

    P.S. Here in USA, it’s called the Washlet (by Toto). They are about $1000!!!

    My mom got a Japanese toilet. I used it once but couldn’t bring myself to press a button, because I didn’t know what would happen. But I bet whenever Mom uses it, her face is just like that…

  • Jennsa

    Bidets freak me out too, the mere possibility of pushing the wrong button and having everything go the wrong direction terrifies me.

    In response to Amy (#87), if you are in a public wash room ‘making noises’, and you push your courtesy button to mask the sound your ass is making wouldn’t every one else in the washroom know exactly what you’re up to in there?

    I mean, if you’ve all got a button, you are going to know exaxtly what’s going on in there, and probably who’s making the noise too. Doesn’t seem to save you much embarassment, imho.

    People really need to get over the fact that each and every one of us makes ‘bathroom’ noises when we use the bathroom. It’s totally natural.

    Dirty bum? Clean it up with loo loo. Fabulous!

  • http://www.monkeythoughts.com Dangermonkey

    That video makes me all the more convicted that bidets are the best thing ever. (It makes sense in my germ-obsessed mind that cleansing the area is far superior to rubbing dry paper on it.) I am totally getting one when I have my own house!

    Ahahahahahaaaa! Thank you for that.

  • AK

    Hey, I found your blog through Sarah Nielson – you’re hilarious.

    Having lived in Korea and Japan, I have to say one thing I miss is the bathroom technology. The toilets that automatically open when you walk into the room (and close when you leave); the heated seats; the bidets; the two flush volumes (small and big); the temperature controlled baths and digital shower temperature controls… One of the biggest surprises was a seat that when you sit down, it adds water to the bowl because it knows what’s coming….

    Great commercial!

    I always feel like I can’t properly appreciate Japanese television without dropping some brown acid first.

  • http://lovelyracket.blogspot.com Jen

    Don’t hate me but “Dooce for douche” just popped into my head like some bizarre campaign slogan!! LMAO!!

  • http://thementalpausechronicles.blogspot.com Mental P Mama

    That almost makes me wish I’d kept the bidet when we renovated…

  • http://kathy-p.blogspot.com/ Kathy

    Okay, that was probably the funniest thing I’ve seen all day.

  • Kris

    @ Stephanie: I love the 5 dollar foot long song! I don’t know why, but I do. I sing it on the way to work – it’s really sad. And porny.

    I also love Japan. Which is also kind of sad and porny.

    In other news, I ran into a dog yesterday named Dooce. Except it might have been Deuce. But he looked like Snuffalufagus – pretty awesome stuff.

  • Bibi

    You’d never see a commercial like that in the United States. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or not.

    Gotta love the soundrack!

  • http://www.spaces.msn.com/gilliangaladriel Gillian

    The other song I had stuck in my head was Leta’s “Be A Friend.” I don’t know which I prefer, actually.

    I should get one for my stepmother. She could use a little Loo Loo in her life.

  • http://www.twodogsrunningsouth.blogspot.com/ Emily

    That was……..so weird but absolutely hilarious. I loved it. I loved the commenter who found the Korean potty training video! That was even more funny!

  • Anonymous

    Last year, while visiting Times Sq. In NYC, there was a tent where they were demonstrating these toilets. They interviewed my husband for aisian tv. It really was a very interesting concept…first you poo, then press a button and your butt gets washed. Press another button and warm air dries off your butt. Go green up your ass…

  • http://infinitebluegenes.blogspot.com/ Chrissy

    I’ve watched this and plan to watch it until I break YouTube. I just love the clean splurts of water and the swing music – especially the pseudo-American grunty voice in the background. So appropriate.

    Hey AK (comment #107):

    Can’t help you on the potty technology, sorry – but as far as the digital shower temperature controls, we currently have that in our house (we’re in upstate New York). We installed an Endless Hot Water System, which is a hot water system that heats water on demand. So, instead of a big water tank that you have to keep warm for when you want hot water, you have a little box mounted on the wall that heats the water as you need it. It takes about the same amount of time for water to heat up as with the conventional system, and you save money by not having to keep a big 100 gallon (?) tank of water hot. Plus, you get a control panel that lets you set the temperature of the water digitally. It’s great – you just set the temp and turn the shower all the way to hot, and it’s the same temperature every time. Anyway, just thought you’d like to know!

    I had the same look on my face when I had my IUI at the infertility doc 2 weeks ago.

    And for some reason, I don’t see a damn thing wrong with that.

    Is that guy single?? Mommy likey…

    Sorry – AK was comment #101. Can’t think straight after watching that video – all I can think of is how much I need that loo loo!

  • http://www.xanga.com/Bratfink Brat

    As I was watching that I wondered, “How does Dooce FIND this stuff?”

    My next thought was, “I don’t think I want to know.”

    Heather, we returned from Tokyo last week and had the pleasure of experiencing these toilets. What a coincidence you have this link; my husband had just asked me to try to find this toilet in the US. Let me tell you something: I completely understand the expressions of rapture. These toilets are AWESOME!! It’s all about really warm water aimed at just the right spot, giving you freshness and um…a much brighter attitude….

  • Denise

    Here’s a link to the Washlet by Toto. Kinda funny commercial if you ask me…

    This is exactly why I married a Korean.

  • Tiana Crystal

    This totally just made my day complete! I had the crappiest day… and then I logged on to Dooce and I saw this, and I burst out laughing! This is amazing!!
    I totally just used two exclamation points. I apologize.
    I want one of those bidets now. I want to make faces like that and bounce around like that! I want funky music to follow me around all the time just for the purpose of making me dance!
    Okay, I’ll stop now. We all want that.

  • Tricia

    Okay, so your butt has to actually come into contact with the toilet seat for that to cleanse you properly, right? That poses a problem for hoverers– as far as the public fun goes, anyway.

    Oh, and NoCal #80- YOU’RE AN ASSHOLE- probably a big dirty one in need of the Loo-loo. Go away.

  • http://mom-o-matic.blogspot.com/ Lotta

    Oh Lord. It’s like my daughter at the pool. They have these gurglers that spit water straight up. She always positions her 2 year old booty right over the stream and just hangs out and smiles.

    Wondering if you ever got some vintage button hair slides I sent to Leta. Lost amongst the big old piles of Dooce fan mail I’m thinking.

    But if you see your mailman wearing a bobby pin with an old realistic duck button on it – he’s totally skimming off the top of your mail.

  • http://www.moonpie-designs.blogspot.com Steph

    There was a LooLoo in my bathroom at a hotel in Korea (and it IS a Korean commercial) and it scared the hell out of me! I did finally manage to turn on the “seat warmer” and I would own one just for that feature! No more cold toilet seats!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I just have to say about today’s Chuck photo: he looks like such a little deer–seriously, like a doe–all peaceful and serene. And then, if you look carefully, you can see Coco’s teeth baring down into his neck. Poor, poor Chuck.

    Maybe someday, when my writing salary picks up a bit, I will be in a position to consider purchases like this one. I’m really not sure I’m a bidet kind of girl… but you you never know.

  • Steph

    Why does everyone immediately believe silly commercials featuring Asians to be Japanese? We have a similar product in Tokyo, but this is Korean.

  • http://tiggerlane.blogspot.com Tiggerlane

    Yeah, and THEY HAVE THEIR CLOTHES ON!

    Makes dry-humping look tame and boring.

    Now I’m wondering why none of the four toilets in our new house is a bidet. Must. Call. Contractor.

  • http://gretch-a-sketch.blogspot.com Gretch-a-sketch

    Dude, that entire video is beyond words. Also, I would be so much more willing to use public restrooms here in the states if they had heated seats.

  • ak

    @ astrogirl426 (comment #118/115) – thanks for the tip! That sounds like exactly what I had in Japan and Korea… would love to install that in my house here in the States…

    And again, Dooce, thanks for the craptastic video!

  • http://www.lucidscreening.com rufus

    yeah so when i was living in korea the place i stayed in had one of these. and it was amazing. it even had heated seats. i was lucky enough to understand korean so i could use it without a problem but it was funny hearing my friends shrieks of surprise when they were in the loo. they do have pictures on them tho. so i always found it amusing that they couldnt figure it out.

    also yes all korean commericals are amazingly cheesy. as is most of their gameshow/talkshow programing. my favorite was the domino’s pizza extreme commercials (which are ancient now).

    Our company actually has a couple of these (same type of product, different maker). If they weren’t $900+, I would have one on every toilet in my house! Everyone should know the glory of a heated toilet seat!

  • http://range.wordpress.com/ range

    OMG, that is funny. It’s Korean, that much I can tell and the guy does make an incredibly funny face when he gets his bum bum washed clean!
