Cultural Confusion: Okay, things got a little sketchy after the awards were handed out. All the coffee porducers in the room are celebrating, or kvetching, or gossiping. There's a lot of general noise. Then this guy runs out and gets up to rock the mic. He starts off with something that the Japanese judges find amusing, but then seems a bit confused about what to say next. It's odd, it's awkward, it makes good photos for sweet maria's web site. What the heck it was all about, I dunno.
