The owner of the Ferrari was a man, and Mr. Sakai talked to him in front of the Ferrari, after which the entire crew entered the apartment.
Sakai is said to be a “bum comedian” who likes to gamble and has large debts. Despite his reputation, Sakai looks quite handsome standing next to his Ferrari on Keyakizaka Dori with his chubby stomach and short mustache. He looks like some celebrity president.
