This week we want you to link Yukio Hatoyama, the soon-to-be new Prime Minister of Japan whose party won election in a landslide over the weekend...  to Peter Jackson, director of the Lord of the Rings films and the producer of new alien box-office hit "District 9."

Leave your submissions in the comments section below, and the team will pick the most creative connection, and I'll announce the winner on Friday's show.
