Video: Even by Japanese standards, this ad is incredibly bizarre
Some incredibly bizarre and surreal adverts have come out of Japan in recent years, but we reckon this one featuring an extraterrestrial dog and a goalkeeper (you heard us) takes the biscuit.
Lionel Messi advertising face wash, Tiger Woods flogging pain relief cream and a goalkeeping toilet commercial have set the bar high as far as strange Japanese ads are concerned, but we’ve stumbled upon a commercial that sees what they have to offer and raises it another few notches on the mental scale.
The advert in the video above is for a Japanese crisp brand who decided to plug their product by telling a tale of a dog teaching a young girl a few tricks of the goalkeeping trade before mysteriously disappearing into a spaceship. As you do.
What connection that tale has to do with the actual crisps is beyond us, but the constant repetition of the brand throughout what is a strangely catchy jingle makes us think that there might be an attempt at subliminal messaging going on here.
Not that it Consome Panchi worked on us, of course.
