The Japanese Jack Bauer Song

  • Profiles of the Day
  • More at Japan Probe Friends...

    Here’s a weird set of commercials for the rental release of season 6 of the American TV drama 24:

    A Japanese voice actor [possibly Jack Bauer's voice in the dub?] sings the “I’m Jack Bauer” song, with lyrics such as “I’m Jack Bauer: strong in a pinch. I’m Jack Bauer: weak for my daughter.” It sounds somewhat better in Japanese than it does in English, I guess….
    Update: Here’s full translation of the song, provided by Erika:

    I’m Jack Bauer
    Always in danger
    I’m Jack Bauer
    I never die
    I’m Jack Bauer
    I get pissed easily
    I’m Jack Bauer
    I’m actually a crybaby…

    I’m Jack Bauer
    To the guys who don’t confess
    I’m Jack Bauer
    I yell at them from really close

    I’m Jack Bauer
    24th is 24’s day
    I’m Jack Bauer
    Let’s go to a rental video place

    Song 2:

    I’m Jack Bauer
    I don’t take orders from anyone
    I’m Jack Bauer
    And I drag everyone along
    I’m Jack Bauer
    I’m good with dealing with danger
    I’m Jack Bauer
    Weak for my daughter

    I’m Jack Bauer
    I’m an immortal man
    I’m Jack Bauer
    Sometimes I pass out
    I’m Jack Bauer
    My phone bill is crazy
    I’m Jack Bauer
    But my job pays for it

    Thanks, Erika!
