Bike race anime PV is so saccharine it gave me diabetes

You know how there are some people out there who look down on anime and its fandom because they think it's all really weird? They imagine the medium as nothing but ten-year-old girls with giant tits parading around making cute sounds before getting attacked by tentacle beasts. Of course these people are wrong, but every now and then there's something to prove them right.

The Nagoya Keirin Golden Dolphin Competition is an indoor track bicycle race, being held annually for the 62 years. As part of a campaign to promote the event, a promotional video was made, an opening for the fictional anime Piststar.

When non-anime fans say things like "that's so anime," this is the kind of thing they're referring to. Piststar has nothing to do with biking, and it has even less to do with the event's plans to support surrounding areas affecting by the 2011 earthquake. I would have considered setting fire to my monitor if I wasn't emptily staring, dumbfounded by this crap.

Watch it below, and then reflect on the fact that your day can only get better from here.
