Keiko Kitagawa Sony Cyber-shot

Japanese advertising campaign for Sony Cyber-shot [Jp], featuring actress Keiko Kitagawa. The idea is straightforward, to showcase the quality of the photos that can be taken by the compact camera. There’re also lucky draws for 1060 Japanese buyers (travel coupons worth US$50-$500), doesn’t matter for most of us though.

World Order – Have A Nice Day (in Akihabara)

Japanese music video for Have A Nice Day by techno-pop group World Order. Decent song, interesting choreography and video concept…

The MV featured many elements of Tokyo’s Akihabara Electric Town, e.g. cosplay, specialist stores, maid cafe, anime, arcades, and girl group AKB48 etc.

World Order was formed in 2009 by Genki Sudo, a retired mix-martial artist and kickboxer, who also wrote most (if not all) of the group’s songs.
