These Retro Japanese Commercials For CRASH BANDICOOT Are Super Weird

Japanese marketing for games is oftentimes different than American marketing. While American gamers like to make lovable creatures appear more bad ass, Japan tends to stick to the happy and silly side of things, although they might have gone overboard in the case of Crash Bandicoot. These five commercials feature Crash humping the air, getting an old man arrested, and receiving what I can only describe as a "penis exam," in the presence of children, a doctor, and an overly interested nurse. Take a look:

I think some of this falls onto me not knowing Japanese, but what was up with that doctor scene?! I got physicals growing up, but I never had to lineup up at school while a doctor and nurse checked out my package! Is that a thing in Japan? What did you think of the commercials?
