Japanese commercial for Toyota Carina in 1980, starring actor Kōji Ishizaka who played the famous fictional detective, Kosuke Kindaichi, in a series of movies in the 1970’s. His costume in the CM was a portray of the character.
Malaysian commercial for mobile service provider Digi, featuring the company’s now famous Yellow Man mascot. The song is a remake of I Will Follow Him, an oldie made famous by Peggy March in 1960’s.
Digi is one of the major telecommunication companies in Malaysia. Its largest shareholder is Norwegian telco giant Telenor, and that creates a huge disadvantage because Malaysian government doesn’t always play fair in business decisions in order to protect the “local” companies.
Thus, Digi always have to be extra innovative to compete with the rest; and the Yellow Man is one of its major successes. This particular ad aired late last year, can’t remember when the Yellow Man first appeared though. Regardless, the campaigns help a lot to keep Digi’s competitiveness in the market.
