Pocky Commercials


General Culture

I am totally fascinated by most of Japan’s modern “culture”. Somehow, it’s as if you had put a lot of stuff into a blender and had let the result sit a little bit too long. Check out these Pocky commercials. Junk food combined with young girls. It’s interesting how it’s much easier to see behind the sexism in advertizing when it’s from a different culture. In the West, I hardly notice that any longer. Bikinis and breasts are everywhere. But if it’s school girls in some insane setting who dance like freaks to advertize junk food I notice it.
