Rahmens (ラーメンズ Rāmenzu?) is a Japanese comedy duo (owarai kombi) consisting of Jin Katagiri (片桐仁) and Kentarō Kobayashi (小林賢太郎). The pair first met in Tama Art University, Tokyo. They started out as a konto (conte:comic short plays) group in 1996. They are known in the US as Mac and PC in the Japanese "Get a Mac" advertisement. They starred in the "Japanese Tradition" video series directed by Kobayashi (e.g. "sushi", "dogeza"), which was originally made for a Japanese audience. The series has become popular outside Japan via the internet, with some anonymous people making English subtitles for them.
