Insurance Company's TV Ad Depicts Mazinger Z as Retiring Section Manager
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Insurance company Manulife began streaming a web commercial titled "Mazinger Kachō ~Second Life e Mazin-go!~ (Section Manager Mazinger Mazin-goes to a Second Life!) promoting its "Mirai no Tabi" campaign. The video depicts Go Nagai's classic Mazinger Z robot as a company's section manager.
In the video, section manager Mazinger applies for early retirement in his company, which becomes the lunch-time topic of his subordinates. One of them, Okuno, is shocked by the news, as he considers Mazinger a hero for the company. The employees begin to tell stories of their experience with the manager, which includes humorous instances of Mazinger using his Photon Beam and Rust Hurricane attacks. They eventually discuss that Mazinger has always wanted to start a soba shop with his wife, before Mazinger Z goes home to start his "second life" after retirement.
Manulife will stream a second commercial for the campaign on August 15 titled "Jinsei no Shasō kara" (The Car Window of Life).
