This Code Geass pachislot ad is 13 minutes long

In Japan, pachinko is serious business. So is pachislot, a slot machine with pachinko balls. According to Wikipedia, the Japanese government estimates that this industry makes around ¥29 trillion ($378 billion) a year. There are tons of these machines that feature licensed anime and game properties too.

The story here isn't that there is a Code Geass pachislot machine. Nor is the story that these machines make lots of money. These facts are merely context to attempt to explain the fact that arcade and pachinko company Sammy has released an ad for the Code Geass pachislot machine that is 13 minutes long.

Yes, this is an ad -- for a pachislot machine -- that is 13 minutes long.

Though the ad is posted below, I don't expect you to watch it all, or even any of it. I just want us all to take a moment and ponder how important this machine could possibly be to justify a 13-minute video.
