commentary: お酒のみホテイ (sake-drinking Hotei [god of luck])

Hiroi Michiaki: Ah. This is the drunken Hotei (god of luck).

Mrs. Hiroi: Yeah.

Everyone: (laughs)

Mrs. Hiroi: The drunken Hotei is intoxicated.

Hiroi: This is the god of luck Hotei from the Seven Lucky Gods. He’s drunk, and if you spin him, he staggers about inside of a sake cup. And in the end he flops and falls over.
