The internet is buzzing about a witty video titled "SLAP" by Instagram user @pelegroso_. This comedic gem, which features the creator slapping himself with his own arm holding a passport, has left viewers in stitches.

The video starts with a humorous interaction at a fictional Japanese passport control. The dialogue is both absurd and entertaining: "hello foreign passport this way excuse me what is this thing I will protect Japan excuse me bombastic sided it is panic get out i love you what is this I love you what is this direction direction what is this this is where are you." The randomness and repetition add to the comedic effect, making this video a must-watch.

One particularly notable comment points out that the background music is a cover of "Now We Are Free" by Lisa Gerrard and Hans Zimmer from the Gladiator soundtrack, adding an epic feel to the already witty clip.

Viewers reminisced about past experiences, with one recalling, "When I first went to Japan in the 80's the sign was - 'Aliens' for foreign passport holders." Another comment praised the video for its storytelling, saying, "See, this is how a good story lets you get away with rudimentary video edit skills."

The video's high production value also caught attention, with one viewer questioning, "Why is the production value so high?" This speaks to the effort @pelegroso_ put into creating a visually appealing and funny video.

Fans of black anime also found a special connection to the content, as one user noted, "I don't know why but one of the best things on the internet are black anime fans."

The line "I will defend Japan" became a fan favorite, with one viewer laughing, "lmao 'I will defend Japan' always gets me." Additionally, the comment "but that slap felt African" resonated with many, adding an extra layer of humor.

Other viewers shared their personal experiences, with one remarking, "Did this when going back to Brazil once," and another adding, "I love how it’s his own arm slapping himself with the passport."

The video has sparked curiosity about its creator, with several users inquiring, "Who is the creator of the vid?" The answer is @pelegroso_ on Instagram, where you can find more of his fun and engaging content.

In a nod to the famous historical figure, one viewer jokingly asked, "Yasuke! Is that you?" This reference to the African samurai who served in Japan adds a layer of cultural humor to the discussion.
