My Trip to Japan | Entertainment Special

Published on December 27th, 2010.

Watching TV is one of my special talent, doesn’t matter where I am. As someone who covers entertainment in Japan, I figure everyone will enjoy some news on what’s on TV right now in Japan. Information below are 100% biased.


Catchiest Commercial – 木村カエラ for docomo (full song here)

Most Annoying Commercial – Pan Cettar

Most Promoted Product – Pepsi

Popular Group/Music – Girls Generation for Gee

Current Promotion – Ayumi Hamasaki for Love Song

    Pepsi are trying so hard to get market share in Japan…

      Haha that does seem to be the case. I don’t even see it in any vending machines.

    The Kimura Kaela one is so bad imo… Should be the most annoying one :P Pancettar at least made me laugh xD

    SNSD’s Japanese version of Gee is surprisingly good!

      It gets annoying when they play it constantly sometimes back to back. It stopped playing a day ago or so. I’m thinking it received too many hate mails.

    Kimura Kaela is so adorable but I had a really hard time understanding what she was singing, I don’t think she speaks any english even though her dad is british.
    Pepsi sure decided to invest in getting Hikki to promote, and now when she decided on a indefinite hiatus bad idea from Pepsi.
    I remember listening to SNSD Gee and I keep hearing zucchini, they really need to learn to pronounce japanese well except Sooyung who speaks fluent japanese.

      “I’m with a …. melting snowman”, that’s what I got, haha. I’m sure Pepsi got her for a good price because of that, but yeah, might be a bad move.

      She’s saying, “A winter faerie is melting a snowman (repeat x 2), it’s a melting snowman.” :)

      It’s the biggest ear-worm this entire trip. I keep humming it on and off haha.
