  • It was a dream.

    I was 4 or 5 and dreaming that I was in kindergarten.

    In the corner of the classroom there was this black hole. The black hole just went, you know...down. Coming up from the hole, crawling at me, was that guy from McDonald’s.

    You see, in Japan, when I was growing up, there were a lot of TV commercials featuring McDonald’s.

    It was really kind of frightening.
