I love Twilight Zone-esque shorts, and Ajinomoto Stadium delivers the goods.
What a great ad. It’’s long enough to make you wonder what the hell is going on (as well as what they could possibly be trying to sell), but the payoff and execution make this a truly memorable spot. Outside of the main protaganist, there are no men in the frame except for the large crowd shots, and the main guy’s reactions are just perfect. Could you get past all those beautiful girls sounding like bar-hound old men? Disconcerting to say the least. I also like that the commercial is willing to show the guy in bed with the one girl he’s found who doesn’t make him run in terror. Funny and effective. Too bad it’s for something as generic as a stadium.
