Carly Rae Jepsen's Japanese Shampoo Ad Is So Stinkin' Cute.
You always hear about North American celebrities making cameos in Japanese advertisements and commercials, but none are nearly as fun and upbeat as Canadian pop songstress Carly Rae Jepsen's recent shampoo commercial.
Moist Diane, one of the country's leading hair product lines, built an entire campaign around Carly Rae's 'I Really, Really Like You' - and it's an adorable airport rom-com. It starts with Carly Rae meeting a lonely girl on the shuttle bus. Then she pulls her out of it and everyone else that was sitting on the bus chases after them, which isn't weird at all. Cue the only time you see Moist Diane products in the actual ad.
(Side note: Am I the only one who thinks this is the worst name for a haircare line EVER?) Oh, a flash mob. So THAT'S why the bus people had to come... At last, they've discovered the male lead. And he gives fantastic profile. She confesses her feelings, and they all live happily ever after.
That was a SUPER abridged version of this 2-minute commercial, which I heavily suggest checking out in full by clicking the embedded clip above!
What do you guys think? Did you like the commercial? And if you were a celeb doing a Japan ad cameo, what would you sell?
I'd be down to sell some Japanese beer. I love me some cold Asahi.
