Jean Reno

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.

Salad dressing, canned coffee, undescribably sweet beverages and cars are just some of the products getting a boost from Jean Reno.

Everything there is to know about Japanese advertising can be learned in a Friends episode from the final season.

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.)
