Awesome Asian Ads - Japan

This first ad is great. It seems relatively straightforward at first then gets progressively more kooky as it portrays a child-beating caterpillar dad and a caterpillar baby with apparent mind-control powers.

Ok, I may be stretching the definition of "awesome" with this one, but this ad does inhabit that grey area between incredibly stupid and brilliantly weird. This clip has 3 ads in 1, which is possibly more than you'll ever need of this. Yet like repetitive techno music, there's something strangely compelling about this.

While this one is quintessentially Japanese; see if you can guess why.
