Yui Aragaki CM NOW Jan-Feb 2011Published on January 13th, 2011.
It’s not only Atsuko Maeda who’s been in the commercial buzz lately, Yui Aragaki has been quite active too. This post includes magazine scans and her TV commercials for Toyota, NTT and Haruyama.
In the Toyota CM, Aragaki is promoting Toyota’s new compact family car “Ractis”. The CM comes in two versions, one with Aragaki sitting in a boat advertising the car to a bunch of families sitting by the lake enjoying their time off. In the other one she suddenly pops out of a dressing room doing basically the same thing.
If you don’t understand what she’s saying, in the first one she’s asking the families “Do you take time off for your kid’s birthday?”, “So, do your family have a compact car?” and the families just answer “Ari!” which in this context means “we do or we have”. And in the second video she does the same thing, only the first question is “Rather than fashion clothes, are there practical clothes that look good?”.
Aragaki is unbelievable cute, don’t you think?
The second CM is for NTT’s FLET’S Hikari, in this case referring to their broadband services. Aragaki talks about how videos on the internet, such as music videos and user-submitted videos have become increasingly popular in recent years. She mentions that she and her friends often share videos with each other and that she loves watching videos of cute little puppies (awwh!).
And finally, the third CM for Haruyama which is a suit outlet chain. Aragaki could definitely be an OL, or at least act as one^^
And wow, I feel so great now that I’ve spammed a little Aragaki stuff again, it’s been too long! I hope you enjoyed it ;)
