So Fox, So Fun, So Funny LOL!

Great ad, so nice to see Akebono in a yukatta and to see him on a dohyo again, brings so many good memories of the Ake-Taka Jidai!

I've just watched both of the ads, and I like it. I wonder if the intended audience actually know what to expect, though. Are there other ads on that actually show what the programme is about? I can see some people thinking that it will be a drama with Akebono singing in it (which would be something that I'd watch for a couple of episodes).

I've heard that there is a 3rd promo that has not yet been released.

Has anyone actually seen the show Glee in the USA?

While not in the States, my 14 y/o daughter bought the season on DVD and we had a family night (or two) of watching it. Cute show. I think the main reason I like it is because of all the 80s music.

I did and I like. Kind of an up to date "Fame" although set in a different environment etc..etc.. Kitchy and over-dramatic at times, but I still enjoyed it, being 14 and all.

Please consider the bold portion most carefully, as it is the best guage of whether you can get anything good out of the show...

I like it. I was worried that it would be too "High School Musical" to be good, but there is a dark, quirky undercurrent of humour that evens out the focus on the musical numbers.

Fanta enjoyed great success with their former spokesperson.

But times have changed, so Fanta has moved on, to a quieter, more dignified yokozuna.
