A promotion video by Korean Tourism Organization which showcases the country’s street food. Not a comprehensive guide, just a glimpse of what they can offer…
TV commercial for Domino’s Pizza India. It’s the largest international market (outside of the US) for the franchise. Population is one thing but not all western fast food franchises have managed to set a stronghold in the country. Indians have a variety of flatbreads in their traditional menu, I guess pizza could blend in with their culture easily.
Dunkin’ Donuts Thailand has introduced a new range of Charcoal Donuts last month (which caused a bit of uproar in the west for its black-faced advert). The use of edible bamboo charcoal has gained popularity in Asia in recent years, especially in bakery products. It’s thought to bring certain health benefits.
I bet the gimmick will get them plenty of new customers, but it’s taste that matters most after all (not saying they are bad or anything). Hat tip to Japanprobe.
A Japanese commercial featuring Korean pop group KARA, advertising for convenience store Family Mart’s fried chicken for the upcoming Christmas celebration.
Fried chicken is synonymous to Christmas party in Japan. The tradition started in the 1970’s after an ingenious marketing campaign by fast food chain KFC (very popular in Japan), that fried chicken was the best alternative to the customary Xmas turkey which was scarce in those days.
