When Cute Can't Save You (VIDEO)

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.

“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.

Tokyo Midtown Illumination Animation: Japan is Good at This (VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
From upscale shopping centers to out of the way local grocery stores and business of all sorts (even a few private homes here and there), Tokyo is currently enjoying a very tasteful veneer of light-based holiday spirit. Whether we call them Christmas Lights, Holiday Decorations, or simply, as do the Japanese, Illumination, there’s no doubt that Japan both loves to play the game and is particularly good at it.
