Office worker fulfills his dream when he fights alongside martial arts star & idol/actress

To promote its Nodogoshi draft beer, Japanese brewer Kirin began streaming a seven-minute short with the Drunken Master himself, Jackie Chan, and idol/voice actress Shoko Nakagawa on Sunday. The dream collaboration came about when Kazuo Ishida, an ordinary 34-year-old office worker in real life, gave Kirin a 39-item checklist to make his dream come true. The top three bullet points are:

  1. Become an action hero
  2. Co-star with martial artist Jackie Chan
  3. Have Shoko Nakagawa — the actress known to her fans as Shokotan — as the heroine

Here is the result:

Ishida's checklist also has:

  • His movie rivals must be his subordinates from work
  • He gets to eat with Jackie Chan and Shokotan
  • He gets to drink tea with Jackie Chan
  • The enemies must come and try to kidnap Shokotan
  • Use a chair as a weapon
  • His rivals must come back for revenge
  • Fight alongside Jackie Chan
  • The movie must have an explosion in the finale

Here is the three-minute commercial version of the short as well as the making-of footage with Chan and Nakagawa:
