Plastic Fantastic in Japan

They love their packaging in Japan. I feel like if I don’t promptly say ‘袋いらないです’ (I don’t need a bag) after a purchase, this could happen… -> Video (play from 0.35)
One time, I actually said I didn’t need a bag, but the sales assistant looked confused but took one out anyway. I repeated and I swear he stared at me, like ‘What? How can you not want a bag.’ And he looked down at his rejected plastic bag seemingly unsure of what to do with it. But yeah, I've seen someone buy something small and they wrap the shit out of it. It's like they want the product to look nice, but also want to protect it in preparation of some flood or something.
