10 Crazy Things That Seem Hot in Foreign Countries

Beauty really is in the eyes of the beholder. The upside of this is that what many of us consider to be our physical defects might turn out to be charming and sexy to someone out there on this lovely planet. After watching this video, crooked teeth, excess weight, and other peculiarities may not seem such disadvantages as before... TIMESTAMPS Crooked teeth (Japan) 0:37 Scarification (Western Africa, New Guinea) 1:20 A heart-shaped face (South Korea) 2:20 Excess weight (Mauritania) 3:19 Surgical dressings on the face (Iran) 4:17 Pale skin (China, Thailand) 5:44 A high forehead (the Fula people) 6:46 A long neck (Burma) 7:39 Stretched lips and red skin (the Mursi people) 8:23 Monobrows (Tajikistan) 9:33 SUMMARY - In Japan, the peak of attractiveness is the so-called "yaeba," or crooked teeth. It's believed that people look cuter if they have this quality. - The inhabitants of New Guinea and several other countries in Africa still decorate their bodies with patterns and numerous artistic scars. The scars are usually given to men during an initiation ceremony, whereas for women these "tattoos" are considered an indication of great beauty. - Possessing a heart-shaped face is seen as one of the key ways to look beautiful. And many Koreans are prepared to undergo complex operations. This often involves breaking the bones in the jaw into three pieces, removing the central part, and fusing the two others together to create a more pointed chin. - Mauritanian women have no chance of attracting a man if they don't have folds of fat on their stomach. To make sure girls obtain the desired dimensions, their parents send them to special "farms" where they can eat up to 16,000 calories a day. - Iran is the capital of rhinoplasty. Despite the high price of the procedure, men and women here are ready to pay anything for the sake of a straight nose, which is seen in this country not only as a symbol of beauty but also of a certain status in society. - In many parts of Asia, pale skin is considered to be the gold standard of beauty. If you walk into a store looking for some face cream, you're unlikely to find one that doesn't have a bleaching ingredient. - The most important attribute for a woman to possess among the Fula tribe of Africa is a high forehead. It's for this reason that some of the tribe's women remove parts of their hair from their head to create the illusion that they have one. - One of the regions of eastern Burma has been called "the country of giraffe women." This name refers to the Kayan people who live there, whose women wear brass rings around their necks. - In the Mursi tribe of Ethiopia, girls learn to stretch the skin of their lower lips using special disks. The larger the disk, the higher the girl's social status, and the larger the dowry that has to be paid before marriage. - In some regions of Tajikistan, a monobrow is considered a sign of female beauty. If nature hasn't granted a girl this desirable feature, she might decide to apply some black makeup in a line between her eyebrows. Which beauty ideal have you found the most unusual?

the thing about Asians preferring pale skin is not spread throughout the whole of Asia. I suggest you try to specify the countries as to not sound as racist to some people.

Sometimes people don’t do it for the look or to be sexy its sometimes just cultural or because they grew up in that way and were influenced by they’re family members.

Stop being racist! Its really not nice! How do you like it if we say something weird about your country's culture? Well that's how it feels like to say something about our culture. Anyway I disliked this video. I am also very furious of why this video was made. So please try to stop making these kinds of videos. And if you stop, I will like this video.

For God's sake, do your home work before making a video. New Guinea, or Papua New Guinea is not at all in West Africa. In West Africa there are three countries called Guinea (not new) Guinea Bissau, Guinea (Conakry) and Equatorial Guinea. One was Portuguese, one French and one Spanish. Papua New Guinea is in the PACIFIC, part of the Melanesian islands. ITs people are not African.

So.... Does Japan even know what braces are?
Did she pronounce Braces as Brackets? Okay, at the end now and this chick needs to know how to pronounce the words she's reading BEFORE recording. Jeeez!

They left out number eleven.. Hipsters in the United States.. Place small gauges in their earlobes and replace them monthly with larger ones until the earlobes sometimes reach the shoulders.

"New Guinea, West Africa"? Lol, No such country. "Guinea" and "Guinea Bissau" are both countries in West Africa. But the "sepic River" they reference and SOME (not all) of the people they show are from Papua New Guinea way over by Australia. Who are they actually meaning to talk about??

Scarification is also a way of tribes identifying people in their tribes. What do you call the current trends of earlobe stretching in Europe and America and extreme tattooing?
