posted on by Kim Morrissy
Dunlop Tires posted its third fully-animated commercial for its Winter Maxx 02 stud-less tires on Wednesday. The music video ad is titled "ROAD TO YOU -Kioku ni Mau Konayuki" (Road to You: The Snow that Dances in Memories) and tells a tragic teen love story about two childhood friends who fall in love only to part ways when the girl leaves on exchange. 15-year-old virtual singer Kafu performs a cover of the 2005 song "Konayuki" by Remioromen.
The female role and narration is performed by Rie Takahashi (Megumin from KONOSUBA, Emilia from Re:Zero), while the male role is performed by Yūki Yonai (Nazuna Nito in Ensemble Stars!). The character designs were drawn by illustrator Asupara, and the video was directed by Toshitaka Shinoda.
