Our feature took a little hiatus due to our sources going AWOL on us, but luckily we were able to find a new source and we can now bring them back! And even better, we found so many this time around that we have a whopping 38 commercials for your enjoyment! (Caveat: future updates may or may not be this large.) In an effort to save your bandwidth, we will not be embedding all of them, but linking them.
We'd first like to congratulate one of our older uploads, Keiko Kitagawa's commercial for Let's Diet Water!
Online Videos by Veoh.com
We were shocked to see that this video had been linked to so many blogs and other sites that there have been over 20,000 views (we wonder if that's close to meme status). One site pulled in nearly 12,000 of them and we were sad that the bloggers of that site haven't even bothered to link us, the uploaders. What we wouldn't give for a fraction of those hits ;_;... but we digress...
EDIT: Sadly our YouTube Account was suspended due to one of our earlier coffee commercials. We're not sure what causes this commercial to be different from the thousands of other Japanese commercials on YouTube, but we have moved on to Veoh , a higher-quality video sharing service. We even have an entire channel dedicated to Japanese Commercials!
