Otousan is alive! Softbank's mascot recovers from the piano incident

Sep 15 // Colette Bennett

Poor Otousan.  In case you don't keep up with the Softbank commercials (and you should), the little dog was crushed under a piano in the last CM, leaving his family in a tizzy and fans like Brad Rice, Dale North and I rather nervous.Sure, it's just a commercial-- but what about the fate of our beloved Softbank mascot?
Well, he's fine, naturally. The newest commercial (via Alafista) shows that he is in the hospital and doing just dandy. How this dog is so cute and hilarious I'll never know, but I look forward to the next CM. Maybe he'll be up and about again by then!
