When Cute Can't Save You (VIDEO)

When Cute Doesn't Count - AkihabaraNews.com

AUTOWAY Tires has another…message.
Ahh yes, AUTOWAY. Some might remember their last uhhh, intriguing marketing campaign that we covered last December. Jump through and have a look. Interesting way to sell - of all things - car tires.

We really do wonder if it works. 
Notoriety? Yep. Moving car tires? Hmm.

いきなりバン!
IKINARI-BAN!
“Suddenly Explode/Pop!”

You can probably see where this video’s going. It begins with what appears to be a teenage girl, the star of AUTOWAY’s new marketing campaign (see the image below, too), droning on about teenage girl stuff.

In webcam conversation with whomever, she’s talking about her new bloomers and teasing a show. She's in love with her silly hairstyle and just can't possibly imagine getting it cut… you know, the things that matter before the prefrontal cortex is fully formed.

So, how does the (in)famous AUTOWAY bring this one back to reminding us about the importance of tires?
You’ll see.

REVIEW: CASIO EX-FR10 Action Cam (GALLERY; VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
Sony has changed up the form factor a bit, JVC and Ricoh have gone for full-on assault drop Space Marine armour (for the glory of the imperium of man!), and Panasonic went with the duo of innovative mounting option and first-to-the-market 4k for theirs. In the end though, they all did basically the same thing: capturing the action. The one Japanese electronics behemoth that was noticeably absent from the fray was CASIO… until now.

TokyoStreetView: Todoroki Valley (4K VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
An environment unique to Tokyo, Todoroki Valley is a simple walking trail adjacent to the Yazawa River and surrounded by a very dense forest that totally shields it from Kan-Pachi Dori, one of Tokyo’s busiest roads. While the Todoroki Valley’s 1.2 km walking trail is pure bliss, it’s only at the end of the voyage that you can discover yet another hidden wonder: the Todoroki Fudo Temple. Here you can enjoy some delicious mochi (Japanese rice sweets) and ramune (Lemonade), and you have the option to let the gods hear your prayers and wash away your sins.
