(Him)●I had never envisioned TV being so entertaining and informative, especially during commercials. I don't think it's worth paying for the trash that airs in the US so like many of our close friends, we don't have cable TV back in Boston. Here in Japan, I would pay just to see the commercials! Even though I do not understand what they are saying in the commercials, at any given time I would say that the majority of the commercials here are at par or even better than any Super Bowl commercial.
Here are some of the things I have had to put up with... :D
The first video is a commercial from a company called Kewpie which sells food products. The creepy baby is their logo.
The second video is from SoftBank a cellphone carrier company equivalent to Verizon or ATT in the US. In the commercial they are promoting a family plan, they have multiple episodes in the series of commercials. The dog is the father of the family but somehow he got turned into a dog in an earlier episode. In this episode he mixes up families because the lights were off due to the energy conservation in Japan.
They are both HILARIOUS!
