Film and drama actor Kenichi Matsuyama (Usagi Drop, Gantz, Detroit Metal City, Death Note films) stars in the Weilder in Jelly energy drink's latest ad campaign. In the ads which began airing last week, Matsuyama jumps through frames of the REAL basketball manga by Takehiko Inoue (Slam Dunk, Buzzer Beater, Vagabond).
As part of Weilder in Jelly's collaboration with REAL, the drink's maker Morinaga will randomly choose 12 individuals to receive a Tigers uniform (like the one worn in the manga) autographed by Inoue. To enter, contestants need to post "the REAL message that dwells in your heart" via the company's Facebook app and Twitter. Those who post before October 31 might have their entries printed in the issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine that will ship on November 29.
