|I don’t exactly know why this is the case, but many world-famous personalities, even “serious” actors and musicians, go to Japan and shoot TV ads. Arnold Schwarzenegger is no exception, having filmed quite a few of these ads in the last decade. If only Gray Davis, the current California governor, were to promote weird energy drinks.|
This site, Japander.com, is an archive of stars’ Japanese ads, and worth spending some time in just for sheer weirdness.
One other thought about Schwarzenegger’s candidacy: No matter what happens in this crazy election, I think we’ll all know how to spell his name when this whole thing is done. One ‘N,” two ‘G’s’.
As the proud owner of a difficult-to-spell name, maybe I should become a candidate for California governor so that people will know how to spell it. One ‘R’, two ‘L’s’.
