Japander.com presents Jean Reno ads for Japanese tv. Gotta love that coffee in a can. The Flea takes this time to remind ad agencies of Japan that I stand ready to endorse your every pop culture product. Except Pocari Sweat which is truly horrid.

I see they Japanized Planipa into "Puranipa". Japanese pop culture is much more entertaining once you learn katakana (the character set for foreign words) -- it starts to sound like a cheesy comedy impersonation of Japanese speaking English! ("intanetto" for Internet, "Rondon" for London, etc.)
