Tommy Lee Jones is making new BOSS commercials



8:35 AM on 08.05.2011

It never fails. Take someone to Japan for the first time and it seems like the first thing they do is jump back in surprise at advertisements for Suntory's BOSS coffee. I'm so used to seeing it that the ads never look out of place to me. If you look around you'll see plenty of American faces in Japanese ads. I guess TLJ has one of those faces, though. 

Japan Today says that Jones is back in Tokyo to make more BOSS commercials, adding to his collection of more than 30 others. He's one of the few American celebs to visit Japan after the March 11 disaster.

This new one should be good: "Alien Jones" is an extraterrestrial who takes the form of a human being to learn more about life on Earth, and in Japan. This continues a series that started about 5 or 6 years ago.

To celebrate his return to CMs, I've shared the one above. He visits Akiba and seems to enjoy one particular part of it.
