Takeshi Kitano on the question: What’s you’re coolest moment?
"In Japan, there is a broadcasting station called NHK,
like BBC, but much, much stricter. When I was a rising
star in comedy I appeared on a live program, and the director specifically
said you can't say such-and-such, if you use these words you'll
be finished. So of course I couldn't resist. I said 'shit'
12 times in a row. I said, 'I saw a shit-like substance on the street.
So I went over and I picked it up and smelled it, and it smelled like
shit. Then I felt it and it felt like shit, and I liked it, and
it tasted like shit, so I put it away. Thank god I didn't step in it!'
That was my coolest moment, because it was a tremendous risk. They could have
cut me off but they didn't. The director was fired and the producer was moved
to another program, far away from Tokyo."
