Crouching Japanese, Hidden iPhone? This might be the best short film we’ve seen in 2013. YouTube user morishowta has invented a wrist holder for his iPhone that allows him to draw it quickly like a hidden blade. The video has him fumble as he perfects his quick-draw technique before he answers his phone with the quintessential Japanese greeting ‘moshi, moshi’. He’s done an equally quirky sequel of sorts since then with the updated iPhone 4 and iPad. Watch out for 0:33, where a projection of a classic Zatoichi film on the wall has him act the part of the titular blind masseur swordsman character.
