It's really amazing.

I think because Japanese media is so polite and would never be intrusive like lets say German media (and he knows that), he totally loosens up in Japanese interviews and is fairly comfortable.

thats because they give him cool presents!

That probably helps too. :)

totally agree. they are much more respectful and he's seemed much more relaxed and fun in every interview from Japan. Wish everyone else would cop on and stop asking him stupid/intrusive questions. They are so aggressive! I'm Aussie, and I was pretty embarrassed by a lot of the interviews I saw from our reporters when he was here.

You know I actually really like Aussie reporters for the most part. They're funny and ask good questions and make him have fun, for the most part. But you are right, he loves Japan and they're so respectful and I think he really appreciates that.

Some of the guys, like Hamish & Andy, Tim & Bigsy, etc, were great and entertaining, definitely not saying they weren't. Just some of them... *cringe* I suppose a bit if it is just because I'm thinking, "God, we're not like that, I hope!" :-)

omg I love Tim and Bigsy, just from the interviews Zac's done with them, hilarious. Some of the older interviewers are a little awkward though lol

I'm an Aussie too and pretty much agree with you. My opinion of Aussie interviewers tends to be one of the two extremes. Either i think they are awesomely hilarious and entertaining OR i think they're really embarrassing. With the later, they tend to be either very lame or very rude. That's just my opinion though. *shrugs* I think we've got some really great interviewers here. Unfortunately, they're balanced out by some really terrible ones. Style wise, they're more casual in their approach which sometimes i love and sometimes i find rather off putting if it crosses to rudeness. That said, Zac has dealt with all the Aussie interviewers pretty well imo - on all three of his promotional trips. Wow, didn't mean to write an essay.

Totally agree with you on all points! So glad I'm not the only one. I think it feels worse when they are like that with people from overseas. However, Zac has definitely handled them all well. Certainly handled Wippa asking him to sign his underwear better than I would have!

I think that's partly to do with the humour. I know Aussies have a...unique sense of humour, and sometimes i worry that can come across wrong in interviews with overseas guests. It helps now that Zac is familiar with a lot of the main interviewers here. I mean, we don't have a huge industry obviously so most have interviewed him before. I'll admit that i always love it when i see overseas people i like handle Aussie interviewers well - this is definitely the case with Zac. Ah, Wippa's undies. Well, tbh...i have more of an issue with the rude interviews than silliness like that. I think that kind of humour is pretty standard amongst the male gender here. That or i just hang out with way too many immature guys lol. As a girl though, i would have preferred to have not seen Wippa's underwear - just a personal preference ;-).

lmfao. so true. The silliness is pretty standard, but I just cannot handle having the image of Wippa's undies in my head... :-P
