The Batty brand of Japan (3Yen / 2012-09-06), UNIQLO’s upscale fashion line g·u.[sic] has gone ‘GU GU” as you see on the right and just below.

At their press conference of Tuesday, March 5, at Ebisu Garden Hall in Tokyo, UNIQLO changed the GU logo that they just created last September.

Why?

Perhaps nobody knew how to type the name g·u..

The logo relaunch also gave UNIQLO a chance to drag out their company clowns(aka spokespersons), the more-than-a-bit-batty Kyary Pamyu Pamyu* and the comedy team “Piece.”

Does this “MAKE SENCE!“?

Sure.

Most of the promotional photos like the one below show Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is shooting her ray gun at you.

According to the J-music news site Natalie.mu (goofy Google Translate), Kyary Pamyu Pamyu makes “alien invaders” fashionable in the new TV Commercial: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and the comedy duo “Piece” to serve as image characters for “gu” brand…as alien invaders in TV commercials to be aired starting April 15th throughout Japan.
In the commercial, the alien invaders yell their catchy slogan, “By the power of music and fashionability, we’re aiming to conquer the world” and then they continued muttering “Queue Kyukkyu~tsu” meaning to, ‘queue in line quickly to buy.’

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is shooting her ray gun at you because “Gu” is the Japanese onomatopoeia sound-word for “zap” noise that phaser weapon makes when its fired, which is a hell of a lot easier to pronounce and type than g·u.
