Sagami Original condom ad

Love needs distance, an interestingly touching ad for Sagami Original condoms airing on Japanese TV recently.

A man from Fukuoka and a woman from Tokyo (1.200km apart) run towards each other and meet in front of the Osaka castle. This commercial proves you can sell condoms without stupid childish sexual innuendo…

Japan is supposed to have the most advanced condom makers – as this claims to be the world’s thinnest condom. But with the staggering amount of できちゃった結婚 (literally “oops I got married”, meaning getting married because you got your girlfriend pregnant, a shotgun wedding) I hear about – a colleague of mine says 50% of all marriage in Japan are thus, he’s exaggerating but he speaks from experience… – it seems all this technology is going to waste.

  1. “– a colleague of mine says 50% of all marriage in Japan are thus, he’s exaggerating but he speaks from experience… –”

    100% around me (well, okay, 2 couples)

  2. another thing that never ceases to amaze me is how many singers/actors/idols/talento go public on TV, at the traditional engagement announcement PR event, announcing their wedding as a できちゃった結婚 – actually using the word sometimes
