New Drakengard 3 TV CM in both Normal and Hard flavors

She's Winner! Hatsune Miku's Chrome ad wins at Cannes

Yes, that Cannes. The one in France. Well, the "Direct Lions" part of it anyway, the one that's concentrated on advertising rather than movies (cue snarky comment about all movies being ads anyway). Hatsune Miku, everyone's ...

KFC gets weirder when Kyary Pamyu Pamyu advertises for it

Okay, so nothing Kyary Pamyu Pamyu does is quite as weird as her video for "PONPONPON," but she's still pretty far out there. Of course, no matter how odd you are, if you're an idol, you pretty much have to appear in ads. Th...
