The unidentified woman in the video starts out by telling viewers the offensive series of jokes she’s about to make are in honor of her Asian friend. “So today is my friend Jess’ birthday and she’s Asian, which got me thinking ‘wow what’s it like to be Asian?’ so I did a little research and now I’m going to provide for you a tutorial on how to be Asian.”

Sounds like this woman may have been under a rock during UCLA’s Alexandra Wallace “Asians in libraries are loud” fiasco because not only does this woman articulate every offensive stereotype in the book but she also illustrates how to get what she calls “the look” by smothering French’s classic yellow mustard over her face and putting tape over her eyes to make them appear smaller.

[NSFS] And be forewarned, at the 1:48 mark where she teaches you how to be “culturally Asian” there’s a 2-second scene of two naked woman peeing on an octopus.

The video is available at WorldStarHipHop.com.
