Even though I’m sure I’m going to end up playing it soon enough (and despite not being a particularly huge fan of the series, the first game is the game I think I’ve put in the most hours ever), I’m not really onboard the hype train for Destiny 2, but I sure as hell love this commercial they produced in Japan to hype the game.
Using Perfume to sell Panasonic washing machines (the track used, “Everyday,” is coming out as a b-side single soon). Via Tokyo’s Coolest Sound.
Sure, this may be an elaborate commercial for sweets, but at the same it’s a really fun “sort of” music video that reveals the power Japanese women have over men — or rather, how easy Japanese men are manipulated. Via this tweet.
I got to this Uniqlo CM from that article I just mentioned, and like it for the Tokyo settings you see in the background — even though it is kinda weird that all the featured models are non-Japanese.
Here’s a beautifully animated commercial for Japanese car dealer Auto Panther created by Shinji Hashimoto (he worked on all of Satoshi Kon’s films). Found via Cartoon Brew.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an intense and epic commercial for instant ramen. Nissin bringing it to the next level.
