3:04 pm in Celebs by Jason Baskey


Japanese television is either from decades in the future or some whole other dimension. There’s nothing even close to it on Western airwaves. And Japanese commercials are in a total league of their own. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what they’re even selling. And they love to feature Hollywood actors to sell their…whatever. Celebs are paid millions of dollars to appear in these ads. Hey, for a few million, I’d happily have a conversation with a dog or head-butt a robot. See for yourself…

Nicolas Cage dances with and head-butts robots for…I don’t know.
