Hatsune Miku Takes Down Twintails in New Shampoo Ad Featuring Scarlett Johansson

posted on by Amanda Whalen

The previously announced commercial for Lux shampoo and conditioner featuring virtual idol Hatsune Miku and Ghost in the Shell star Scarlett Johansson has been posted on the official campaign site and will begin airing on Japanese television on August 31.

In the commercial, which is shown below, Miku is inspired by a billboard of Scarlett Johansson with straight, long hair and decides to try taking down her signature twintails. The video features the Hatsune Miku Symphony's opening song, "Mirai Jokyoku" (Future Overture), which was produced by Mitchie M.

Miku: "I definitely like the way that I always look, but..."

"Hey! A cool commercial."

"Maybe sometime I'll do it too..."

"Let's take a step forward!"

*Song plays.*

Miku: "I'll keep moving forward like this."

*Scarlett Johansson calls.*

Miku: "Alright!"


The Hatsune Miku Symphony event took place in Tokyo on August 26. It featured Hatsune Miku alongside the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra and was sponsored by the Lux hair-product company.
