Read About Aziz Ansari’s Wondrous, Insane Trip to Tokyo


Way back in January, Aziz Ansari told us that GQ had sent him, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, and Momofuku chef David Chang to Tokyo after he tweet-requested the trip. Almost a year later, GQ’s account of their trip is out, and it is completely surreal. The article is four pages long but manages to include friendly toilets, Aziz playing with a potbellied mannequin, a mass blind-date, a sexy Buddhist monk, a racist photobooth, and lots and lots and lots of food. More food than that. I would be very surprised if this trip doesn’t get made into a movie called something like The Hangover Part III. (If it does, who wants to go to Tokyo with me for the premiere?)
