The Saga of Sakeru Gum さけるグミ

I had a good laugh with these commercials, especially at the end, so be sure to watch it all the way through. Sakeru gum comes in regular and long. In these TV ads, Chi-chan seems to prefer the long kind. About a dozen ads ran in the series over the past year, and we are lucky to have them all together with subtitles. While technically SFW, it’s full of innuendo that wouldn’t fly so well on American TV. The story takes some turns as Chi-chan battles her temptation and constantly loses, but it ends with a twist you do not see coming at all.

Since we’re on the topic of *cough cough* innuendo, McDonald’s Japan recently sent a startlingly suggestive tweet, encouraging customers with a pep talk, about French fries…

“The longest French fry isn’t necessarily the best French fry.

Short French fries, curved French fries, crispy French fries, and soft French fries. All of them have good points. All of them have people who love them.

As long as you value your own unique flavor, we believe you’ll be able to contribute in your own way. To all new employees, congratulations on your new jobs.

McDonald’s French fries.”
