  • Hi, I'm Mari Takahashi.

  • I am Olivia Sui.

  • We are not the same person. We're tired of people confusing us.

  • But instead of getting mad, we're here to help.

  • By giving you guys the simple dos and don'ts for how to not piss off Asian people.

  • First, let's talk about greetings.

  • You might not know how to pronounce our names.

  • So, do just ask.

  • It's weird for everyone when you try and say our names and then butcher them.

  • So, is it Olivia Soo-wai, or Soo-wee, or, uh, Soo-eye?

  • Sui.

  • Oh.

  • Okay, so, Mari Te-catch-a-he.

  • Close. Ta-ka-ha-shi. It's phonetic.

  • Well, you said it was Japanese.

  • Zjhoon.

  • Zhjay-woonah?

  • Juh-zjuhn-joon.

  • No, it's John.

  • What? We have the same name!

  • Am I Asian?

  • Aw, I knew I was Asian! Dude!

  • Wha-ah!

  • Dude, Jared! I'm Asian, man!

  • Don't fetishize Asian women. Don't call it "Yellow Fever."

  • Yeah, why does it have to be a disease?

  • There is nothing sexy about diseases.

  • What about... Malaria.

  • Hmm, I guess diseases are sexy.

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

  • Emphysema.

  • Gonorrhea.

  • Nope.

  • Don't pander to us.

  • And don't try to one-up our Asian-ness.

  • Oh, that's right. You're Japanese.

  • Yeah!

  • Oh my God, I went to Japan once.

  • Oh, no way!

  • Yes.

  • My uncle, he actually--

  • And I love anime, like, so much.

  • Like, oh my God, like, konnichiwa.

  • Like, the best, right?

  • Mm-hmm.

  • Anyways, sayonara.

  • Do know that there are a lot more countries in Asia other than, China, Japan, Korea.

  • For example, India, right, Monica?

  • Huh?

  • On that note, don't assume that we're all from the same country either.

  • Not all Asians are the same.

  • You'd actually probably really like my friend.

  • - Oh? - Yeah, she's Korean.

  • I mean, you might even know her already.

  • I don't know every Asian person.

  • - Her name's Sarah Kim. - Oh. I do know her.

  • And?

  • I like her.

  • Oh.

  • If you're making a movie about Asian people, don't cast a white person to play an Asian.

  • Cast me.

  • Or me!

  • Or me!

  • Please leave.

  • - Uh-uh. - Why?

  • But I, you know, I can こんにちは, I can do it.

  • All right. Cool. Bye!

  • Bye, forever.

  • Don't assume we're all good at math.

  • Yeah, that's stereotyping.

  • - 18% of half of $51 is-- - $4.59.

  • Damn it!

  • Don't assume we all know karate.

  • Yeah, that's stereotyping.

  • Ow, ow, ow.

  • What was that?

  • I thought the karate's inside me.

  • What? No!

  • You have math. We get one!

  • What do you have?

  • A sh*t ton of cute backpacks!

  • That's a lot of dopes.

  • Yeah, do you think it sounds too negative?

  • Maybe, and we're generalizing a lot, which is the exact thing we don't want people to do.

  • Right, so I guess if you want to not piss off Asian people, don't be an asshole.

  • Or like, overall, don't be an asshole.

  • Don't be an asshole.

  • Wow, I love this video, and Asians!

  • Hey, if you want to watch "One Letter Off Kids Shows," tap that box on the left.

  • Or if you want to see more of Mari, tap that box on the right for "Smosh Pit Weekly."

  • It's back every Saturday, baby!

Hi, I'm Mari Takahashi.
