That takes some good acting not to laugh through this ad.

Awesome!! I love when they make down to earth parody like this.
Remind me to this Ultraman music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-Pv2y6uhvA

I found the ad to be peculiar, but it had quite a fun taste.
The folks can sleep comfortably knowing that Mazinger Z will always be there to protect them. Smile

Wow, the insurance company who wants pay for retirements really went all the way get people to invest in them.

This really infomercial i think.

Though there one thought thou. Japanese mangers retire really enough to have second life? Magaziner's wife looks like she young enough to be in her early 20-30s. Shocked

I expected to laugh (which I did) and somehow teared up a bit.

WTH??? Only in Japan this can happen. But while we have Snoopy advertising for Met Life, but Mazinger-Z, that's a whole different kettle of fish. But we love Mazinger and that's why this ad is so strange and so funny at the same time.

Actually I love to see a shot of Mazinger and Baymax doing the "hand" deal.

I saw a Met Life blimp in Tokyo in 2012.
