Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: A television program has aired the Lotte Acuo gum commercial that features the cast of the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise and the actor Toma Ikuta (live-action Akihabara @ DEEP, Honey and Clover). As reported on Tuesday, the "Boutique" commercial has Ikuta chewing Acuo gum when he spies an item that is sold out at a boutique. When he blows his "nice breath" onto the boutique clerk, she transforms into Mikuru Asahina. The boutique manager comes over to scold Ikuta for "turning people into anime characters." Ikuta says "Suimasen" ("I'm sorry") with his fresh breath, and the manager turns into Haruhi. Confused, Ikuta runs out of the store and runs into alley cats … who all transform into Yuki Nagato.
The video will officially run as a television commercial starting on April 5 in Japan.
