About a year and a half ago, I posted for the Fresno Beehive a few of Mameshiba’s creepy/cute commercials. Last year, Joan, who finds the ads as amusing as I do, did her own Mameshiba post. What I didn’t know until today is this (via Japangasm):
“The interesting thing about Mameshiba is that the videos used to promote them aren’t derived from any existing product, film, book or other media, but the other way round – the videos came first.”
Knowing these ads existed just to create a brand, and not to sell beans or something, doesn’t make me like them any less. Enjoy some Mameshiba commercials after the jump.
