Japan TV commercials are my favorite, they can be bizarre in unimaginably creative ways, have such amazing production value, and, most of all, they are so uniquely from Japan. For example: for the past decade, Tommy Lee Jones has starred in canned coffee ads as an emotionless alien helping people. There are so many products that I only ever see TV ads for in Japan, such as for instant ramen and toilets with cutting edge technology. Here, in no particular order, are my top ten favorite Japanese TV ads from the past year.
This is what I decided to do with my time yesterday and a little bit of today.
