Commercials with (fake) sumo appearance

Recommended Posts

This reminds me of an ad that I saw in a magazine in 1990, which I liked so much I kept it. Can anyone recognise the sumo wrestler in it, or is it just some model made up to look like one?IMG_20190122_0001-002.jpg.76a175712d5cf0a1a52f9a8279f62a85.jpg

CM for an anti-mosquito spray

video and story on the site of the maker:

https://www.kincho.co.jp/cm/html/ka_n_spray_rikishi/index.html

The really not that huge Takashi Sasano is transformed into a rikishi in this followup to a CM in which he was a (also CG) body builder https://www.google.com/search?q=笹野高史&tbm=isch - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZLns5Q40wA

An older CM of the series with a plain Sasano: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZLns5Q40wA

But are there real (ex-)members of the sumo world involved in the new CM?

Listed as appearing in it is a Naoki Hino 日野 直樹 - searching him with sumo leads to Kiyoazuma

- is it him shown in the back in the beginning?

In his chanko nabe restaurant in 2012:

Details: name plates on the wall, shikona inventions with the Sasa- kanji 笹

detail2: the animated mosquito has a mawashi

Some of these commercials have probably been posted individually on Sumo Forum in the past, but this is a new compilation video on Youtube.

There's already a thread in "Off-topic" part. Maybe it can be merged?

And here is sumo ad from Indonesia

Some Irish fans trying sumo in Paddy Power ad during this year Rugby World Cup

I like it, but is it really so hard to look up the basic rules?

The CM made it to the final of this time 79 in its category in the ACC Tokyo creativity awards and there goes some prize with that already. Conveniently it's the first category listed and it's the first on the list. http://www.acc-awards.com/festival/2021fes_result/filma.html

The results will be announced on the 29th and in real time on a special site. https://tokyo-creative-crossing.com

Haribo was kawaii before there was kawaii.  When they moved headquarters to Graftschaft, they wisely decided not to change the name to Harirhine.

HAns RIegel BOnn = HARIBO

It's just founders name and location.
