Japanese Marines teach you how to salute with iPhone app & campy video

Not being a big fan of war and violence, I find it satisfying to see the militaries of the world spending their money on making silly iPhone apps and super-campy YouTube videos. This delightful instructional video comes from Japan’s Ministry of Self Defense, and shows how sailors and viewers can use their iPhone to learn how to properly salute.

Although this will not be well received by some of Japan’s Asian neighbors, there’s an extra high MOE benefit to this education that requires no subtitles! Too bad that the free app is not available on Apple’s US App Store. Tear down the wall, Steve Jobs!
