Scientist, Sprinter & Sumo Wrestler Star In Extremely Strange Japanese Ad

By Joseph Chung

Oh Japan, you never cease to amaze me. This is probably the strangest bug adhesive ad I have EVER seen. How fitting that the ad is also from Japan. The minute you find out where it’s from everything starts to make sense. In the ad a sumo wrestler, sprinter and scientist demonstrate the strength of the adhesive in question. All three fail to cross the finish line which exemplifies the quality of the product.

In all honesty, I would probably buy one of these just to have it. I have never really seen an ad like this and wish the U.S. did more like these. They went balls to the wall and created something new and refreshing. This ad is definitely worth your attention.

Nippon!
