Japan Ad Council and Korea Broadcast Advertising Corp have jointly produced a commercial featuring popular stars Choi Ji-woo and Tsuyoshi Kusanagi.
A bold Japanese advertisement for anime series Lucky☆Star which aired in mid 2007. Not sure if it’s a genius idea or lazy work – it’s unique IMO – the show was a huge success regardless.
Adapted from a four-panel comic strip manga by Kagami Yoshimizu, Lucky Star tells the story of four high school girls. It doesn’t have a main plot but focuses on the daily lives of the characters.
Japanese commercial for McDonald’s Tomato Grande burger. Yum yum…
[Update] The advertisement gone viral again in 2015 because of the model’s resemblance to American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift.
The model’s name is actually Agota Varga and she’s from Romania; she has featured in campaigns for well-known fashion and cosmetic brands in Europe.
