CM Tuesday Wk1: NEC
I absolutely love Japanese commercials (CM). They’re by far the best form of Japanese advertisement. As I follow numerous Japanese celebrities and their endorsements I constantly come across new CMs. I thought I’d take Tuesday’s to share some of my favourites with you each week.
I’ll be kicking it off this week with Watarirouka Hashiritai’s and Tamaki Hiroshi’s NEC LaVie CMs. The first CM which began airing in October, 2010 featured Watarirouka Hashiritai in maid costumes cleaning up the place as Tamaki Hiroshi is watching baseball with the new “LaVie L” and Wireless TV Digital.
After the success of the first CM. Watarirouka Hashiritai’s and Tamaki Hiroshi returned to do another two CMs to date. The first one which began airing in March, 2011 only featured 5 members of Watarirouka Hashiritai now 7. The new CM stressed the Wireless Digital TV feature and new scratch proof laptop case.
The most recent CM began airing in May, 2011 again only features 5 members of Watarirouka Hashiritai 7. This time they’re advertising an all in one PC which can be used to watch TV and Blu-ray discs.
NEC don’t want you to own a TV but one of their computers instead. I can honestly say if I were in Japan I’d like to pick one of these up.
As they’re so kind to provide us with Watarirouka Hashiritai themed wallpapers I thought I’d add them to the post. The resolution is a little odd but I suppose they’re made for their computers and not my Macbook Pro.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks CM Tuesday. I look forward to sharing more of my favourite Japanese CMs with you next week!
