Sounds just like another day in Tokyo, right? After all, they're always getting taken over by things of monstrous proportions, cough Godzilla cough.
Seems that Panasonic takes its camera promotion as really serious business, because not only did they have a spokesmodel for the their new Lumix FX700 camera on hand to advertise the new release, but they also turned said model, Ayase Haruka, into a giant inflatable balloon. Apparently spectators were kind of scared and confused by the balloon, and who wouldn't be? It is kind of horrifying. But you know what they say, everything's bigger in Texa....I mean, Tokyo.
I'm not sure if I'd want to stand next to it.
Hit the jump to see a video of all of the boggled spectators at the camera's release.
