The wonderful, weird world of Japanese advertising!


Ah, advertising!

Can't you see that I am serious!?

I often think fondly on the Mr. Sparkle episode of the Simpsons--when it comes to bizarre, strange, "burned into your retinas so you see them even while your eyes are closed" advertising, nobody does it better than the Japanese! Here is a collection of odd, memorable spots from Japan (and one from Thailand, I believe, starting things off). Enjoy(?)!

Damn funny Sylvania light commercial...

The doll-headed dog shot does it for me...

It's not a tuuumah...it's Ahnold in Japan!

I feel like this ad would be good for hypnosis...

All you Hulkamaniacs sing along!

This one is pretty ingenious...

...and I thought I was the only one with a diapered elephant friend!

Finally, a way to deal with those pesky track and field monkeys!

If I had a dime for every time this has happened to me...

I'm never gonna dance again...'cuz I viewed this weird Wham video...
