The videos below are commercials that were shown on the BS2 network in 1999-2000 (?) to introduce him. If you've only seen Domo in pictures, you really need to watch the series of videos to truly understand the complex social dynamics of Domo-kun and friends - it's time well wasted!
Viewing: To watch the videos, you will need a Div-X player (free download). Someone was kind enough to compress the video files with the DivX codec, so they are much smaller than in the original Quicktime format.
Understanding: Easy enough, if you speak Japanese. Otherwise, here is a rudimentary translation. It's based on the drew.corrupt.net original, but I have smoothed it out a little.

Many people seem to have problems playing the movie-files, like having only sound, etc. You need the DivX codec to play the video.
Use an average search-engine like google and type in "divx".
To cut it short, go to divx.com e.g. and download the codec for your Windows Media Player. READ what is written there.
