Char, Garma Star in Gundam Thunderbolt Theater Manners Ad
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Bandai Visual began streaming a theater manners ad for the upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky theatrical screenings. The video stars bird versions of Char and Garma where Char misbehaves by recording footage, yapping on his cell phone, and kicking the seat in front of him. In this version, the duo speak in a Kansai dialect.
Garma: Gosh, am I looking forward to the movie!
Char: Hey, Garma! It's super fun if you watch it with this!
Text: Photography/video-taking and audio recording is prohibited!
Char: Also, it's super fun to kick the seat in front of you while talking on the phone!
Text: Cell phones are prohibited! Don't kick the seat in front of you!
Garma: You just want me to do that so I'll say "You betrayed me, Char!" Geez, don't tease me just because I'm "a stupid kid..."
Char: Hey! That's my catchphrase you're talking about!
Garma: Sorry, sorry.
Narrator: Teaching you the proper manners to use in movie theaters.
