Yu Darvish

Do you know Yu Darvish ? He is no.1 pitcher in japanaese professional baseball. The popularity of Japanese girl is no.1,too.

I went to the stadium to watch his playing. His style is good, and he is handsome, besides. But unfortunately he married with the actress last year.

Probably he will participate in the baseball game of the Beijing Olympics as a Japanese representative. Watch on TV by all means.

World celebrities on Japanese ads : part 2

Followed by the last issue (World celebrities on Japanese ads), let me introduce other Japanese ads featured by the celebrities form overseas.

The most stand-out of this category is definitively the ad by a mobile phone company “SoftBank” featuring Cameron Diaz & Brad Pitt.

The TV ad is quite simple. They are walking on the streets or dancing while talking on their mobile phones. Each version plays an old hit music (ex. The Kinks”You Really Got Me”,Olivia Newton John “Xanadu”, Swing Out Sister”Breakout” etc.) as BGM, which makes it even more impressive. Well, they are not set as lovers in the ad, by the way. (Serch “softbank” in YouTube)

The partner of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie is also appearing in a Japanese ad. She is selected for the ads of a luxury brand “INTEGRATE” from Shiseido, which is the most popular cosmetic company in the Asia region. I think the lipsticks look really good on her thick, large lips.
