On Youtube I can see that former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson seems to have a landed a new gig in Poland as spokesman for the Japanese brand of canned coffee called “BLACK” (see left) by UCC Company (Wiki). When I saw these commercials today, I chuckled to myself:
“Cool, Iron Mike finally seems to have caught a break selling my favorite canned drink* here in Japan.”
In the Polish TV commercial (see right and below), Tyson seems to be using the same vending machine with the same “BLACK” logo that I use here in Japan. In addition to the “BLACK” drink have an identical name, similar logo, and same the vending machine, the TV commercial had the same general goofy gaijin/foreigner vibe as the commercials here in Japan.
