Dog Speakers

Quentin Tarantino, in the great tradition of American celebrities shilling oddball products overseas, has surfaced in a Japanese commercial for a telephone speaker shaped like a dog. Ok, wait, one: telephone speakers. Two: telephone speakers shaped like a dog. Three: Quentin Tarantino dressed in some sort of samurai kimono selling said dog speakers? What the hell?

I mean, i'm not saying he shouldn't. Why not? I'm sure he's making the cash and all that, and for something i can't really assign any sort of odd corporate stigma to. But, you know, i'm pretty sure the real question here is why there are telephone speakers shaped like dogs in Japan in the first place. Why does one need a speaker like this? On top of that, why in the world would its first form be that of a dog? A sort of defensive looking, possibly plush dog? These are questions that need to be asked. Someone who speaks Japanese, translate this so we can try to make sense of what's going on here.
