** The same also goes (to an extent) for the German language - any German learner will tell you stories of how Germans themselves told them how ugly, harsh and difficult the German language is

* American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealander and Mexican women are [[CaptainObvious already popular in their home nations]] but, since, late 2011 at least, there has been a trend (at least in terms of demographic trend, not fashion trends) for British men to seek American or Canadian wives (and it is ''not'' a RaceFetish), either online or via other in-person means. As it is, the United Kingdom does have a significant American and Canadian diaspora - mostly in London, Edinburgh, Norfolk, Suffolk, and North-West England.

* Maid outfits are relatively popular in Japan than in the west, particularly the "French maid" variation [[note]]This should not be confused with the English maid variation where the dress is longer and pinafore apron is used instead of a bib apron, although it should be noted that the English maid outfit is also popular in Japan[[/note]].

* To say many Germans have difficulties feeling patriotic about Germany would be an understatement ( ThoseWackyNazis certainly play a part in that). Major politicians are on record as saying things like "I don't love Germany, I love my wife" (President Gustav Heinemann in the late 1960s early 1970s) and left wing demonstrations frequently include slogans like "Deutschland du mieses Stück scheiße" (Germany, you bloody piece of crap) and even worse. Yet the international opinion of Germany (unless of course, you ask people in countries that were particularly hard hit by the Nazis) is a lot more positive than that.

* ''Blockbuster Video'': While the American physical branch was closed in 2013, the franchise is still strong in Mexico, partly because Mexicans haven't embraced the video-on-demand services as much as Americans have.

* American engineer and industrial management theorist [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._Edwards_Deming W. Edwards Deming]] was virtually unknown in his home country until TheEighties, late in his life, when all of a sudden, American firms started lining up seeking his advice on how to run a company. Why was this? Because the Japanese Love Deming. He made his name in postwar Japan helping to rebuild their shattered industrial base; his innovations in quality control and continuous improvement in quality and productivity were almost singlehandedly responsible for the Japanese economic miracle of TheFifties, such that he was honored by the Emperor Hirohito in 1960. By the '80s, Japanese firms had used Deming's ideas to become [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld world-beating powerhouses]], and all of a sudden, the American companies that had spurned him in the past became very interested in what he had to say.
