Namie's BIG MOUTH

The cold looking, but cute 'n sexy Namie Amuro is the new face of McDonald's Quarter pounder. Hardly the sexiest or slickest thing to be associated with, but hey: a girl's gotta get paid. We are in a damn recession and this is an easy way for some Yen to get made. And nab some free McDonald's in the process. Home girl has got a kid to feed.


There was a time I used to wonder why Japanese celebrities would endorse some of the stuff they do. Silly random stuff like a chewing gum or in this case a Quarter pounder. But after going to Japan, I stopped wondering. Celebrity endorsement is HUGE over there. It's what helps shit fly off of the shelves. You'd be hard pressed to find an advert for a product in Japan that isn't tied to a Japanese celebrity. Everything from heated toilet seats to a soft drink has a face on it.

This advert starring Namie Amuro doesn't make much sense to me, but it's a cool advert. Watching Namie head butt Namie and fight it out Virtua Fighter 1 style couldn't fail really. We've had a big old tour, a Coca-Cola endorsement deal, a couple of singles, a couple of photo books and now a McDonald's endorsement deal. When the hell is this new album dropping!!!

  1. I thought it was funny with the Tekken part (it looks like it too me)especially playing against herself.

    CM's are weird these days. What does boxing/Tekken fighting have to do with Mcadees' Quarter Pounders.
