The Latest In Crazy-Great Japanese Advertising

These two ads — one shark-related TV spot and an interactive Big Nose installation— are the craziest Japanese ads of the year, so far.

1. Gumi Guum (In honor of Shark Week)

Gumi Guum, you might have guessed, is a gum brand.
If somebody could please translate, that would be great, but I’m guessing that the shark is chewing on the man to get the taste from the man chewing on the Gumi Guum?

2. Gatsby body deodorant sheets

So, there are currently these big nose installations at a Japanese university. According to ManaStar, passersby were told “YOU SMELL” and a pack of Gatsby body deodorant sheets would shoot out.
Only in Japan. If these were installed in America———->lawsuits.
