Are Japanese treating our national icon with disrespect in this video?

STOMPer HearTheLionRoars came across this Japanese advertisement depicting the Merlion and feels that it was done in bad taste.
The STOMPer says:
“I saw this video clip when one of my friends forwarded it to me.
“I might be a bit too sensitive, or lack humour, but as a Singaporean, I think it is done in very bad taste.
“Take a look at it, STOMPers.
“Frankly speaking, I’m sad to admit that I did find it quite amusing when I watched it for the first time, but after a few more times, I think it’s lousy.
“Our Merlion is not something that u can just treat with no due respect.
“No one can just call our Merlion to come and go as they wish!
“It is a country’s icon, and in this case, it is our very own Merlion.
“I am sure there are better ways of promoting our country.
“What do you fellow STOMPers think of this?
“Anyway, I’m looking forward to NDP2009!”
