Haruhi Suzumiya Poster Appears in Canadian Tylenol Ad

posted on by Egan Loo
Latest global cameo of heroine from Nagaru Tanigawa, Noizi Ito's light novels

Not-So-Daily Link of the Day, Part II: For the past month, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has been airing a commercial for Extra Strength Tylenol Rapid Release pain relievers that includes a brief shot of a Haruhi Suzumiya poster. In the 30-second commercial, the poster appears at the 18-second mark. The Haruhi character or her likeness has appeared in everything from Belarusian chocolate waffles to a protest sign in the Gaza Strip and a Chinese pamphlet about the Beijing Olympics. She also appeared — with the official approval of her light novel creators Nagaru Tanigawa and Noizi Ito — on a limited release of tissue boxes in Japan.

Thank you to Jesse Betteridge, Starks, and lllwtflll for the news tips.
