Will the real Eita san please stand up?

Anooooooooo… Farewell Buki, Shunny-kun, and my chubby bunny Haru-chan…

 photo unoeita14.jpg

I’m thinking it was either a case of who has the most hair or perhaps it was who has had the most amount of (majorly questionable) hairstyles, but it appears that Shiseido Japan have ditched three of the famous four UNO Fog Bar boys, leaving the one and only, big hair monster master himself, my lobster, Nagayama Eita san (sumimasen, so many inappropriate insertions already -_-ll..).  Anyhow, here is the CM – aka How To Tame Your Hair In 14 Seconds Flat.

I’m quite sure I could watch him play with his, er, hair, all day long, lol. While we are talking about the man, I recently finished Saikou no Rikon, and I have to say… I was wildly disappointed. Eita was freaking farking adorkable in it (who didn’t chuckle themselves silly at the awkwardness of his running style, lol :D :D) but, while individually everyone carried their parts very well, something in the chemistry between the cast was lacking for me. To be quite honest, the love quadrangle situation in Saikou didn’t feel 100% necessary / wasn’t really played out in a way that I feel like made my time worthwhile either. *shrugs* Who knows, maybe I’m just unable to relate because I’ve never been married before.

Or maybe I’m secretly snarky because I am single after all, lol. ANYWAY! :D


*cough* *cough* *cough* On a side note, I was avoiding The Heirs, but have officially caved after seeing how beautiful Kim Woo Bin is from the Running Man Australian episodes (whose cast I tried to stalk while they were in Melbs btw, but failed miserably).

But holy sh*t, herd in all the magical cows, this was what I think I must’ve been subconsciously afraid of – having my feelings for Lee Min Ho turned around post Boys Over Flowers. No. NO. NOOO to the the power of all the Konglish you can squeeze into my kimchi cladded out fridge. I’m almost halfway through, and I definitely feel a review coming on for the series, but all I have to say for now is:—

Woo Bin, please step your game up and save me.

And fix your Asian Ken doll hair while you’re at it as well (this is a hair post after all). Love you long time, Choi Young Do. X

This is so much better than any other boyband dance routine that I’ve ever watched (=∀=);

Honto ni, honto ni.

*coughs* Johnny K *coughs* *chokes*…

Here is the new UNO Fog Bar CM!

No more field trips to London, no more The Beatles-esque costumes, no more di-gue-ding-dings, but still, it’s <333333333 to the absolute MAX.

I want to say though, Buki, you can grow all the facial hair you want but you can not conceal that babyface!

And, ARGH(!), (semi)Breaking News(!!) Shunny-kunny-kun-kun-kun… when the crap did you get married? I thought you were the more “attainable” one..! TTT___TTT

But now… *looks at Fog Bar boys’ relationship statuses* … this is how it is..?


LOL. Just joking (also, gomensai, couldn’t help myself with the graphics^^;) I KNOW WHO IS STILL ON THE MARKET ( *locks Sato kun away in Neverland dungeon* *cues Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer tune* ♫ ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ “Noona, dear, is coming to town..!” ♫ ♪ ♩ MUAHAHAHAHA xDDDDDD) 

Anyways, please watch the making of  the CM. It’s possibly more enjoyable than the actual CM itself:

*dies@the 17sec mark* (Can the boy get any cuter???)

I want to work for Shiseido Japan.

When you click onto the Shiseido UNO facebook fan page, this is the image that fills your computer screen… >>>


…I seriously think I almost died (and by now I have no shame >_>;) The poster is so metrosexually delicious that as a squeeling fangirl woman, I want to purchase this men’s UNO Skincare Tank range. For myself (you never know, maybe I’ll become as pretty as them.) Like, look into each of their eyes (one at a time~~) and just feel what they are trying to say to YOU. Just feeeeel.

*closes eyes* *soul wonders off into nether universe* *drooling*


Baby Miura: Noona, I know I am younger but that doesn’t mean I am inexperienced. I’m a man. You’re a woman. Please believe me, I know how to use my UNO products.

Eita san: I will not let anything stand in our way— no matter the size, no matter the texture, no matter how long it lasts, no matter the amount of hair… nothing. Nothing will stop us from having UNOfabulous hair together.

Shuny kun: Oh baybay. I can see it in your face. Let’s do it. You want me. You want me to do it right now. Here, let me show you how to use these UNO products.

Buki: Oh doozy san, this is my first time. Please lead the way… show me how to use these UNO products? Onegaishimasu ? (Shout out to doozygomen, couldn’t help but entwining you into this^^)


*soul returns to body* *opens eyes (to reality)*

Ah, there may be a chance I’ve misinterpreted their feelings but you know, sometimes the hormones get a little, ahem, foggy (feel free btw to share what you guys sense the boys are really trying to say.)

New CMs and another appearance on Oshareism would be more than ideal. In the meantime, a big thank you to Ellély for feeding me the news on these four boys’ latest fogtastic adventures in the first place ;) And I shall leave you with a few more piccies from the Shiseido Japan website (click for full size image. Last pic actually taken from non-stop crusade‘s tumblr. I want to say also the  boys all have nice ankles. Domo, domo.)

Shu-shu-shu, shu-shu-shu (translation: Watch them now, watch them here. lol x)) >>>

[ edit: Click HERE to the Shiseido website to view the 60s version of the Run CM for now. It’s the 4th clip along the first row. BELIEVE me, you need to! Waiting for file, but as soon as I can do it, I will amend the embed & update the 30s one to the full version. Thankyou for your understanding ^_^ ]

(^^Love to YeSeul over @youtube for upping these!)

^^^Seriously laughed to the point of crying from start to finish in all 3 of them (TOT;;;)


In the Run CM (60s ver.):
Miura Haruma almost not making the gondola… hayaku! Hayaku! You’re gonna be eaten aliiiiive!!!!! xDDDDDDD
※ The choir boys chasing down the Fog Bar boys (the key change in the singing is pure gold xD)
Eita finding time to spray his hair amidst all the chaos lololol
※ The boys’ reaction to the Minotaur… fuuureaking priceless^^;;;;;;
※ The Minotaur joining in on the Fog Bar action *sheds tear*


In the Barber CM:
Eita, Shun & Satoshi‘s admiring, “Why can’t it be me?” faces at how Miura gets to have his hair done by the pretty blonde (btw, Miura‘s “Shhuuu” there OMG, kill me now gaaaaahhh *slaps self in face*)
Eita‘s face at his Chopper-esque looking hairstylist (!) *bangs fist repeatedly on desk* ^^;
※ When the vanity mirrors drop down & the four boys lean in to check themselves out (sucks to be so cute, ne? xDD)


In the Women CM (Yes that is Miyazaki Aoi. She has joined in on the Shu! Shu! forces. Lucky, lucky gal -_-;):
※ The boys’ reaction at the Chopper-dude’s toothless twin *wipes sweat from forehead*


*takes deep breath* They looked like they had waaaaayy too much fun filming all this!!! xDD I didn’t think they could top themselves from their last batch but these CMs had me in stitches even more than what, say, Yamapi‘s Engrish speaking stint in the Kurosagi movie did (click here.) Pure advertising brilliance.

A few more pics hey for the love of it. ‘Tis the perfect way to round out our working week <3


Shu-shu-shu-shuu, I so want these four boys in a dorama now (I will settle for a movie if need be) :))))))

Not done fogging yet

21 08 2010

Gomen, gomen, hontoni gomen, allow me to spazz a little more… I’m basically pouncing on the Shiseido Japan Uno website everyday in hopes of being rewarded w/ a new fogtastic CM but hmm, no such luck (as yet? Should I be holding my breath?)

But! Dah-dah-daahn ! They’ve got new piccies up! Of course, I couldn’t help myself but to post them, so here they are (gaaaaah why & how does hair vanity look like so much fun O_o???)>>>






Also, well, I may as well make the most of it… since these guys can pretty much sell me anything, any day, please let me share my favourite (individual) CMs from these Fog Bar boys ^_^

Eita for MUFG
The reason I was sold? The slapping of the plastic onto the forehead xD
What else did I like? Eita‘s gentle comedic charm. I wish I was a turtle or a pair of random patchwork-y Aztec print trunks lololol I did not just say that ^^;;

Tsumabuki Satoshi (& Kase Ryo) for UNIQLO
The reason I was sold? Just the cool way the pieces of clothing were laid out on the floor & the darn catchy melodic whistling (^o^).。♫♪♫♪♫♪♩♫
What else did I like? Tsumabuki Satoshi‘s Superman shirt pop at the 0.37s mark :))

Oguri Shun for au Sony Ericsson
The reason I was sold? Er, did you not look into his eyes at the end? *sees stars*
What else did I like? Ikimono Gakari‘s Hana wa Sakura Kimi wa Utsukushi as the background theme <3

Miura Haruma for JR東日本My First Aomori
The reason I was sold? The sunshine, the water, the clear blue skies, the fresh breeze, the… lololol Who am I to kid. His fresh youthful innocence. I wish I was a seagull -_-;
What else did I like? The sunshine, the water, the clear blue skies, the fresh breeze (truly! xD)

(^^…or maybe THIS one is my fave. Equal? Something about the way he looks at her @ the 0.15s mark that makes me think things that I probably shouldn’t be thinking as a self-adopted big sister ><)


And, and, and, a few of these guys have together been the faces of other brands before, so while I’m on a role, here is some previous CM magic pre-Shu!Shu!Shu! days (Eita-heavy I hear you say? You’re dreaming… lol) >>>

Eita & Oguri Shun for Otona Glico
The two are brothers.
Eita‘s hair in first CM = Classic.
Shun in second CM as a pilot = Throw me off the plane now.
Chocolate in both CMs = Could it get any better? *munch munch* xD

Eita & Tsumabuki Satoshi for DoCoMo
The entire DoCoMo 2.0 CM series is another advertising campaign for the books. All v. amusing, all v. hip, all v. cool people xD
This one is def one of my all-time faves. LMAO @0.08s mark. Ouchies! ^O^


I still heart my Fog Bar

18 08 2010

[[[ ※ Related post: I heart Fog Bar TV ※ ]]]

Uh oh, Mother of crap.


(picture credit: 石栗子 @baidu)

Looks like we have ourselves a new product in the Shiseido Uno Fog Bar range. It’s a navy blue bottle! Something to do w/ wax? And it appears that perm waves are in?? (Dear goodness, Pi was so ahead of time!)

Surely this means a new CM is on its way, but man, heaven help us all if  they are going to try & outclass their original series of CMs <3 I mean, anyone else remember all the rather adorkable Shu! Shu! Shu!-ing & Michel Legrand‘s Di-Gue-Ding-Ding trancing in the background? I don’t think I stopped humming the Diguedingding-ding-ding for weeks. And I can’t even watch Heston Blumenthal‘s cooking show because as soon as they start playing the theme song, instead of drooling over cool British food, I just think of four Japanese guys dressed like The Beatles joozhing their hair & being silly all over London xDDDDDD

But alas, if they do decide to make a new CM or CMs, well, I will be there to embrace them lololol

In the meantime, I want to share a six-part clip! I came across this Oshareism Ikemen Daishugo Special the other week where the four Fog Bar boys came on to do a bit of promotion work (I think it was late last year, ’round the time when the first Fog Bar CMs premiered.) Funniest show ever (& I didn’t even have to understand them word for word ^O^)

Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6

Here are some key points that I managed to excavate from other pages around the place (note: khaki bold italics = my thoughts/narrative… because I just have to ><;)-

※ All four of them are scared of bugs (lol .) Eita– some six-legged insect (didn’t get the name,) Oguri Shun– centipedes, Tsumabuki Satoshi– cicadas, Miura Haruma– praying mantis. The host asked them to reenact a scene where this insect lands itself onto a girl who asks them to help her get rid of it (seriously charming xD And who wishes they were ze girl?? *shoots hand up in the air* ) During Shun‘s turn, he said that even though it would freak him out a little,  he would still act as he’s totally fine & try to shoo the creepy crawly away from her (I personally would be using my Fog Bar can to spray these bugs outta there- nothing like showing off a product being used in more ways than one! )

Miura Haruma loves to play the game Monster Hunter. One day he went over to Shun‘s place & all excitedly taught him how to play. When Shun‘s character was dying he got all anxious and cried “Your character’s going to die!!” (Feed them Green Mushrooms!!! Or is that another game?? ) Shun said that Haruma stayed at his place playing until the bright & early morning.

※ After they’d finished filming their CM(s), everyone returned at first to Japan except Eita, who decided to stay in London by himself & do a bit of sightseeing. He made reference to the communication barrier. There was a moment where he strolled into Starbucks to get a beverage (high five bro!) & this was how it went down-

Eita: “May I have an iced latte?” (in Engrish lol English)
Waiter @ counter:HAR ???”
(LMAO x 100. Well, I am more than available for English lessons- over an iced mocha xDDDDDDD )

Satoshi calls Shun “Ogurin,” Haruma calls him “Shun-san” & Eita calls him “Oguri-san.”

Satoshi & Shun are good friends from working in Tenchijin together.

※ Someone revealed that Shun often cries when he’s completely hammered (lol. I am trying to imagine a drunk Oguri Shun & what many of us people would want to do to him xD)

※ Another said that Shun gets all serious and kakkoi while singing but the truth is, he can’t sing to save his life (actually, I do remember hahahaing @ the scene in HanaKimi where he is singing Love Me Tender *loves on Sano Izumi* )

Shun has around 50 pairs of Nike shoes and many Mickey Mouse toys because he loves Mickey. He also owns a 1.5m tall Gundam toy (fully raiding his house now…)

Shun did a monomane (mimic) of Mickey Mouse while Miura Haruma did Beat Takeshi.

Eita brought a photo of this 99yen toilet brush he bought but never used (I seriously almost wet my pants during this part. Eita is so much funnier than what you’d prolly imagine… I think it comes from him not really intentionally trying to be funny. He seems to say things in such a normal, dry tone & it just makes him so much funnier. Plus, the host tends to drill him a bit xD )

Miura Haruma ran after a giant flying squirrel once- naked– while at a hot spring (for some reason, I find myself grinning. And I don’t really know if that’s entirely a good thing -_-;;; )

※ There is one part when Shun is trying to answer a question but Eita‘s stomach suddenly starts growling (I want these two in a series together right now! )

Satoshi owns over a 100 pairs of jeans (*trumped* & my family complains I have too many clothes…)

※ At the end of the episode, they all participate in a mini psychological quiz:
1. Out of 100 flowers, how many would you pick out to dry?
2. Draw a picture of an octopus.

1. The number written represents what you think of your looks. The higher the  number, the better  looking you think you are. (Seriously guys, really? We love you even more! And lol, Eita, you need to stop ^^;;;;; )
2. The longer the tentacles, the more dissatisfied you are (lmao @ Miura & Eita’s octopuses, lol @ Satoshi’s reaction to Miura’s sketch. Shun, nice octopus impersonation *hearts* )

^^See their responses & have a little chuckle yourself ^_^

Shu! Shhuu! Shhuu! Shu! Shu! Shu! Shhuu!

These CMs have been out for a little while now but I want to talk about them! Shiseido Japan managed to kidnap Tsumabuki Satoshi, Oguri Shun, Eita & Miura Haruma for their new Uno Fog Bar range to England & shoot a series of commercials that are as amusing as they are (insanely) pretty to look at… very much to my liking xDD

If you haven’t seen them yet, raid HERE. Eita is such a dork <3

They are rather, ahem, influential as I’ve found myself ordering the white bottle in from good old eBay (!) And I thought I’d also make some wallpapers which you can feel free to use. If re-posting, please credit! No hotlinking either thanks (*^_^*)
