A video compilation of Japanese commercials featuring controversial actress and singer Noriko Sakai. Most of the clips are from the 1980’s and 90’s.
Sakai started her showbiz career as a teenager in 1987. She became popular soon and well-loved for two decades… until her recent drug scandal.
Police arrested Sakai and her husband for illegal drug use in August 2009. She will face court hearing later this month; and she’s probably lucky to avoid a second charge for obstruction of justice for fleeing from early investigation.
All her sponsors have suspended her advertisements since the news. The companies could cancel her endorsements depending on the outcome of the court hearing. It may also signals the end of a once highly successful career, what a pity.
