Always remember to be super kind on the train!

Given how massive Japan’s public transportation system is, train and bus etiquette is a pretty big thing over there. So, in order to remind/teach people about how to behave properly when riding trains and buses, Japanese railway companies and cities often create humorous videos showing people what they should and shouldn’t do when riding on public transportation (take this wacky train ad for example). Recently, the city of Los Angeles seems to have embraced this approach because they have just released a very amusing series of videos featuring a Sailor Moon-esque transforming magical girl whose mission it is to make sure everyone is aware of their “train manners.”

This series of three videos was released on Wednesday (Oct. 10) and featutures an over-the-top transforming, singing, public transportation etiquette defender named Super Kind  (Cho shinsetsu, 超親切) battling her arch-nemesis Rude Dude (Meiwaku Boy, 迷惑ボーイ).

The videos feature J-pop inspired singing, super girly magical transformations and plenty of humor.

Check them out below!

This ridiculous series of PSAs was directed by Mike Diva, a guy whose work you’ve probably seen more than once. He’s responsible for quite a number of viral videos including the totally absurd “Japanese Donald Trump Commercial” that went viral last year.
