Is This an Advert for Japanese Snackfoods or Nightmares?

Posted on May 21, 2010

It starts off simple enough. A young Japanese boy walks home, seemingly with a broken heart. His head hung low with the broken heart hanging over his head. There’s his dog to cheer him up! Wait…why does the dog look human? Why is it holding a rubber ear? What happened to its head? Oh my God, why is it walking?

After walking displaying a level of dexterity not often thought possible in canines, it becomes clear the human-like dog is simply trying to cheer up the heartbroken little boy. Judging by the look on his face when the boy reconciles with the girl, however, the dog is genuinely upset that he chose her over him. That’s cool, though, because the dog has crackers! Or chips!

So it can safely be assumed that the commercial is pimpin’ out some Calbee-brand cheddar cheese chips. It’s too bad that the walking dog will haunt your nightmares and kill you from shock before you get a chance to eat them.

Did anyone notice that the "dog's" first trick was that he tied his tail around his *whistle* and danced? Well I did and it was so wrong!

Similar to a Pocky CM. Or have they been the first one to do it?
