Lemme in! My Pocky's getting all wet!
I love how epic this commercial is in just thirteen seconds. Why is she so upset? Are they long lost siblings? Former lovers torn apart because of war and social turmoil? Whatever it is, Pocky makes it all better. Personally I cannot wait for the Pocky dance to take the nation by storm. It'll be like the Macarena + the Electric Slide + Hands Up, Baby, Hands up x A MILLION.
Isn't that cute and somewhat ridiculous for a mila-second commercial? It's got its own story and character arc and dénouement*.

Possible bumper sticker: "How's My Formatting?"
Possible sandwhich board sign: "Ask Me About My Foil"
But look! There's more than just regular ole chocolate Pocky:
What's better - there's more than just one regular ole Pocky commercial! Yay! And you haven't seen epic til you've seen this:
That's like the Pearl Harbor of Japanese commercials.
In a world... where chocolate sticks rule supreme... one man must bite
Oops. Too soon?
