Commercial Break: Bear facts about global warming are fur real
Our Japanese advertising correspondent tells us that the Nisshinbo Corporation are at the forefront of the fight against global warming, as these two short ads prove beyond doubt.
It seems that they’re doing so in conjunction with bears. In the first ad, a bear is shaving itself with the help of a chipry young Nisshinbo employee. Less fur in a warm world equals happier bears you see, and we’re always on the lookout for happier bears around here.
Next comes a touching scene as the bear (with fur having grown back) bawls his eyes out Gazza-style after a reading a newspaper article about the plight of polar bears in this warm-as-balls world. Then he, erm, does a little dance.
Nisshinbo? No idea mate.
