Lost in Translation redux

Remember that scene in Lost in Translation where Bill Murray asks whether to hold the glass to the right or the left, and the commerical director goes off on a 5-minute tirade about something in Japanese (his philosophy of directing, as it turns out), and afterwards the translator translates the entire 5-minute speech as, "to the left?"

The actor who plays the commercial director is actually an 80s rock'n'roll star and actor who goes by "Diamond Yukai." Last weekend I met his manager, and he's still gigging! He had a show yesterday in Shibuya at O West.
