  • Hello, everyone.

  • Welcome to happy school days.

  • Would you believe that?

  • He did that to an entire school full of people for a full year.

  • Welcome to Tokyo Tuesday.

  • As always, if you're a regular viewer, welcome back.

  • If you're a regular viewer, welcome back a few years back.

  • What was it?

  • About 2000 and 15.

  • 2000 and 16, 2016 k released an entire Siris on his channel where he talked about basically fake the Japanese accent for an entire year, my sophomore year of high school.

  • And I called myself happy.

  • That was like my nickname, Happy School days.

  • What is it?

  • Well, basically, in the new school I've been going to for two weeks now, I've been pretending to be a full Japanese person with, like, an accent and everything, and I changed my name to happy throughout the year.

  • I was just talking about experiences that I went through doing this whole social experiment, and it turned out to be a 18 part Siri's.

  • I called it happy school days, and then, at the end of it, I told everyone revealed toe on my classes, you know, teachers, friends that I don't have an accent.

  • I'm a native English speaker and got everyone's reactions.

  • They're all freaking out And, um yeah, and then it just turned out to be happy school days.

  • And this, I think, the Japanese accent for an entire school years, something like that.

  • I have so many questions.

  • Honestly, before we start this starving so had ordered pizza.

  • What do you eat on your pizza?

  • I like pineapple, actually, pineapple like Hawaiian pizza.

  • For those of you who don't listen to the podcast, which, by the way, is linked below Japan Pizza Hack Domino's English site, his dirt cheap pizza way Dio pizza is ordered.

  • All right, So, like I had, like a small list of stuff that I wanted to ask.

  • I had watched these, like, happy school days like pretty much as they came out like it was a really fun Siri's toe watch you pretending not to really speak English and this accent and everything.

  • What's your back story?

  • Where did your life start?

  • Grew up as a military child.

  • Dad's in the navy, moved back and forth between California and Japan, Germany at some point, cool.

  • And, uh, yeah, the last place I lived was Colorado.

  • Okay, from, like when you're very for I think episode one of happy school days.

  • It was like I was so bored in my first year of high school, right?

  • I just decided to do this.

  • But where did you get the idea for Happy's character?

  • Uh, actually, the character is actually funny.

  • I went to Japanese middle school and there was someone in my class called Hoppy.

  • His name.

  • His name was like hot, hot something something.

  • But everyone called him happy.

  • Happy on.

  • That's that's why I got it just happy.

  • Okay?

  • And so at what point did you decide?

  • Like, I'm just gonna fake an accent for this year.

  • Just right before I moved to Colorado.

  • I just There's, like, really chill atmosphere about it is by far like if you haven't watched the videos, it's all gonna be linked below.

  • But this juxtaposition between doing something so and presenting it in such a chill matter, that juxtaposition is what makes the videos so good.

  • Before you started it, did you tell anybody that you were gonna do this?

  • Just my family knew.

  • Okay, Maybe some friends, but they didn't think much about it.

  • Okay, so your family is in, like your parents knew that you were gonna go to school and fake an accent.

  • How did they react?

  • Uh, yeah.

  • I mean, my dad thought it was funny, and my mom was like, Why?

  • Yeah, just thinking your disappointment to your family.

  • Something like that.

  • A little more like serious minds, E.

  • I mean, she thinks I'm I'm just kind of goofy kids, so she's always, like, All right, do your thing.

  • Day one.

  • So you walk in.

  • How did you feel the first time?

  • It wasn't in the first day of school.

  • It was orientation.

  • Like a week before.

  • I was, like, waiting in line for, I don't know, to get registered in the school and stuff like that.

  • And that was like, my practice rent.

  • I guess that's why I got it.

  • And I was just like, my name is happy.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • I'm from, uh when you did that, I pulled that off for life.

  • Oh, Oh, Pizza's here, folks.

  • They got the order on best stocks.

  • Japanese customer service is usually good.

  • Pizza is pizza, though, so I mean, I wouldn't complain.

  • Whatever kind of beating this.

  • All right, good news and bad news.

  • Put a lot of cheese on this.

  • Thanks.

  • It's like really those times people found out throughout the year.

  • About six people found out once they found out they kept the secret because, like, they felt like they were part of the joke.

  • So it was like it was just kind of like a cool like we had our own little like secret thing going on.

  • By the last month of school, the whole student council found out, and like one of the teachers, like the sponsor of the student Council, she found out.

  • And so it it just became an inside like inside joke.

  • So they were cool about it, so they were cool about it.

  • And the teacher was like the teachers, one of the coolest people shot to Miss McGuire.

  • She literally like comments on my instagram lives and stuff she likes follows me and stuff like she's like Mostly everyone was cool with it, but at the end of it, once I told everyone, yeah, some teachers were mad, Askew said.

  • They gave you a break on stuff throughout the year.

  • The teachers that got mad is, was my English teacher But the thing is going up.

  • I was always really bad at English anyway, so I was trying my best in English.

  • Eso is just like it really just was.

  • For the most part, I tried my best.

  • I was just I'm just bad at English.

  • And so, yeah, I guess it worked out the most stressful moment of the entire time last day of school when I told everyone and that video got taken down to write Essex.

  • But I'll re upload it eventually, but there's like there's still the rest of the Siri's right e.

  • I think that's what it kind of makes.

  • The whole thing cool is just literally the whole like documentary, but the whole Siri's, I think just that's kind of what Mexico.

  • And it's just this development from a simple joke to this elaborate prank to this grand social experiment.

  • I think that's what just made this whole project, um, like just more a lot more deep than then what it seems like on surface with the whole year.

  • It really, uh, changed me as a person, I think.

  • But I mean faking an accent for an entire faking.

  • This character takes a toll on your mind and yeah, I got I got really depressed, like halfway through the year.

  • And it was just, uh, outside of school.

  • I never hung out with anyone.

  • You know, I didn't talk to anyone because I can't I can't talk to them on social media or anything, because if they find out my social media, they'll find out like YouTube, which then they find out the happy school days Siri's and then they'll know the secrets out.

  • So I really had to, like, keep myself hidden.

  • So I just spent a lot of time alone and then I think all of that and just just literally not even being yourself for a whole year.

  • It's just Z.

  • It's just the present.

  • It's all in the past Now.

  • I've grown up as a person.

  • It just It just sucked in the moment.

  • Just all the just the depression.

  • I remember I had to go.

  • I went to a psychologist because I was kind of going crazy.

  • Uh, yeah, my parents, My mom was telling me you should stop this everything.

  • But it was halfway through the year.

  • I couldn't just I had to keep going, so yeah, it was concept, but towards the end of the year, summer came.

  • And I think a lot of that just the sadness and everything was part of winter.

  • Just that, that seasonal depression.

  • But then I just felt better because the year was ending.

  • I could finally, like, tell everyone.

  • And I knew I was gonna make this, you know, video taking an accent for a year.

  • And I knew I knew in my head it was it was all worth it.

  • But when I think about I guess when I think about, like, the just how far I've come as a content creator, I definitely think of that because, you know, that's kind of that's kind of how your content got started.
