Part of the wide appeal in British and international sensation TV series character Mr. Bean is his minimal use of language and extreme visual humor. This results in many interviews with him in places outside of the UK, one of which aired exclusively on Japanese television in 1999.

This had the character arriving into Japanese television for an interview and acting his usual self, which means instead of embracing the culture, he childishly embarrasses himself by sticking chopsticks up his nose and falsely translating the Japanese language (among other things). This continues up to the point where he is escorted offset and told never to return to Japan.

The only current remnants of the interview are a couple of clips from various interviews with Mr. Bean briefly shown in the documentary The Story of Mr. Bean - The life of Rowan Atkinson, one of which may come from this.
