One lucky man got a chance to take a photo with actor and producer Hideotoshi Imura, who is well-known for playing warehouse worker Hidetoshi Hasagawa from the American version of “The Office.”

Imura made several appearances on the hit TV comedy series, but it was his speech in the Season 6 episode titled “Happy Hour” that turned him into a legend and spawned numerous memes.

During an office happy hour outing, Darryl (played by Craig Robinson) encourages Hasagawa to tell his life story about fleeing Japan after killing a yakuza boss:

“Number one. Steady hand. One day, yakuza boss need new heart. I do operation. But mistake! Yakuza boss die! Yakuza very mad! I hide fishing boat, come to America. No English, no food, no money. Darryl give me job. Now I have house, American car and new woman. Darryl save life.

“My big secret. I kill yakuza boss on purpose. I good surgeon. The best!”

Imura has appeared in countless shorts and shows prior to and following his stint on “The Office,” including the popular “Bear Tours” web series on YouTube.

According to its IMDb page, “Bear Tours” is about “a Japanese man, who can’t speak English very well, works for a travel agency in the US. He has many awkward experiences as a tour guide.”
