‘Wacky’ Japan ads

Wakino_Armpit_Ad_500x

Wacky spelled Waki—well actually Wakinoshita—means ‘armpit’ in Japanese. The WAKINO Ad Company (AXILLARY Ad Company) is trolling for our attention with these armpit ads according to Adweek.com:
This Japanese Company Believes That Renting Space on Armpits Is the Next Great Ad Frontier

The happy “Two-Down” vending machine that you often see on Tokyo’s street is Wex Corp’s private brand vending machine…with reasonable pricing. We are aggressively offering a “two-down” vending machine that finds new demand and receives wide support.

 
drink-sizes-japanThe-rest-of-the-story…
When I first came to Japan in 1984, the fixed price of drink was 110 yen ($1 USD) for a measly 190 ml (6.4 oz) can. In 1986, the standard-throughout-Japan price went up to 120 yen but over the next few years the normal 350 ml (12 oz) can was introduced. To pay 120 yen, you must use three coins: one 100 yen and two 10 yen coins.120yen-in-coin

The reason that these 100 yen vending machines are called TWO DOWN is that they only need one 100 yen coin for a drink, which is two coins “down” from the normally required three. The happy Wex-Man character carries a big mallet to “Hammer Down/ハンマーダウン” prices with Wex’s colorfully loud blue and yellow vending machines that, “anticipated the Era (of Japan’s endless deflation since 1992).”

Polite Japanese ballerinas do fart

That was just a one-off, stealth trial of the horror manga artist, Jinji Ito (Wiki).

The actual Tokyo Metro manners poster of a polite ballerina is actually more lightheart-farted.
