Generally, when commercials involve sumo wrestlers, they're going to be good. Starting February 7th, the Fox hit Glee is going to start airing on Japanese television, and to promote it, they've recruited former sumo grand champ Akebono Taro to sing and "dance" for the ads.

With Japan's fascination not only with American music but Americans performing it (hence the success of This Is It), I would expect Glee to be an instant success amongst the island nation. As it is, it's been a big hit here -- even I've come out of my otaku shell to watch many an episode of Glee. Check out the two ads down after the jump, where you'll be singing "Don't Stop Believing" for the rest of the day.

This is going to be torturous for me.
