…I gotta say, seeing a white guy (one in a suit at that) in a Japanese commercial is a little off-putting, and I’m not sure why. It’s like the Twilight Zone or something… It’s probably because he’s speaking English now that I think about it.

Well, it’s not like its uncommon for them to do that. Plenty of American actors have made comeos in Japanese commercials. That’s the CEO of Dominos, makes sense that he’s going to introduce the new app and marketing campaign. What I find funny though is had your comment been “I gotta say, seeing a Japanese guy (one in a suit at that) in an American commercial is a little off-putting” it would have been a shitstorm.

Well, you kinda expect it for celebrities, but this guy is just the CEO of Domino’s Pizza. On a side note, I have seen commercials with Japanese guys in suits in the US (for the Wii), I think the difference is that they were speaking English (all 5 words of their dialogue), so it didn’t seem that odd.
