Namie Amuro vs Biker Fem-bots. For Coke!June 30, 2011
J-pop star Namie Amuro was recently featured in a Coca-Cola commercial, released earlier this year, that pits her against a hostile android in a motorcycle race.
The makers also released a ‘making of’ video, showing… well, pretty much just showing Amuro posing in front of a green screen. But I’ve got no problem watching that.
I admit to being more surprised than I really should have been that everything, down to the coke bottle, is CG. As the recent AKB48 experiment shows, we’re still some way away from replacing people with CG, but that day is on the horizon.
