    If you are interested in seeing Western celebrities doing commercials for the Japanese market, here you go.

    Peter Falk pitching Toyota cars as Colombo?? Hmmmmm.... And ZZ Top doing ads for Honda??

    Kate Beckinsale looks great though [​IMG] Don't remember what she was selling.

    Lux Danny. She says it twice.

    Fun to see. I wonder however if their voices aren't dubbed over, even if they seem to speak there own language.
    I didn't recognize Sean Connery's voice, for instance.

    This is great. Funny to see Arnold Schwarzenegger peddling vitamin drinks and Nissin noodles. And he is our governor [​IMG]

    Thanks for reviving an old thread. [​IMG]

    I wonder if there's similiar site in Japan about Western celebrities doing US commercials?

    The Visa check card commercial with Charlie/Martin Sheen was hilarious. [​IMG]

    Hey, at least Ford is one of the few westerners who actually chose to speak Japanese in his ads.
