Just like David Hasselhoff, you may be the butt of endless jokes here but in Japan you are HUGE! And you don't mean like a sumo wrestler, you mean like a major star. Here, you mention your name and people give you a blank look and a shrug; in Japan they're lining up to get your autograph. It's too bad you can't live there, among your fans, but your obligations here don't permit it. Just don't let it get to your head. Celebrity can be draining so make sure you take lots of breaks from the pressure of fame.
