We are happy. It's not logic

Courtesy of Jalopnik, some pages from Mitsuoka Motors , a Japanese car company I never heard of. They have a range of vehicles from Excalibur knock-offs down to micro-cars that look like something from a Lego layout. Even more intriguing is their sublime Japlish advertising slogans. In the micro-car page, I'm still trying to figure out the Santa references.

The subtext also reads like they're really OEMing someone elses chassis, I wonder who the initial vendor is.
