TOP 20 Japanese Commercials

In the past few days I have received an impressive amount of links and many videos from alot of you. Curiously, 12 videos were all Japanese commercials. This led me to take a trip over the internet looking for the best Japanese commercials. To my surprise, the net is full of them and some are pretty funny! Here are my best 20 ! Thanks to HighT3ch readers I am now aware that 8 commercials listed are not Japanese. Those are 9,6,5,4,3 and 1. Thanks to all who helped me figure this out.

If the videos on your browser start to skip, try refreshing the page.
If you see nothing but numbers and video description is updating, be patient.
Very old commercial but the monkey’s expression is timeless.

    Top20 japanese commercial? How come I see chinese and korean commercials in there?

  • Good point ! 🙂 I was waiting for that one 🙂
    Its because those two commercials were written as Japanese from the site i got them from. I only realized they were not Japanese after I have posted them.
    If anyone has two good Japanese commercials I will be happy to replace the two non-japanese ones 🙂

  • Shko

    Number 1 is Japanese.

  • Oh, just read Jessica’s comment. Number 9 is Thai then, as I guessed.

  • rabid rilo

    does anyone know the source of the music behind #14 (the nintendo commercial)

  • Yes, #15 is a comedy sketch from “Mecha Mecha Iketeru!” which is known as “Mechaike” for short. It’s a long-running and very funny comedy show.

  • American in Tokyo

    Great collection, it’s a shame that several of the Videos arn’t Japanese (as posted earlyer), and one isn’t even a comercial (#15), but a conseptual commercial like what you would find on SNL.
    Nice collection though.

  • Tim

    No sound on most of them?

  • origami

    #4 was actually a commercial for Fox Sports from a few years back. There was also a Russian slapping contest (with a chess-like clock, I believe) and something else. All pointing out silly “foreign” sports, all hilarious.

  • Your mom

    haha lmao i like number 13 its so funny cuz me and my friends did shit like that once when we were high


    You know what, I am a student of Japanese also, and I think you people need to get off your High Horse and get over the fact that some of these comercials are not Japanese. It doesnt really matter, Just because this guy doesnt quite know enough about Japanese doesnt mean he cant try to compile a list of funny comercials for us to watch. And by the way thanks for the funny comercials I loved them.


    P.S. And number one is Japanese FOX, some Japanese student. HaHaHa ^_^

  • Madruga

    Hy from Romania . I saw all of them , but some weren`t avaible anymore . Anyway , those commercials roocjs . Good job .

  • Amir Ghahrai

    I have seen better. I have been making tv comercials for over 16 years. Mostly in Iran. I think comedy works best , when it comes to comercials. I think the Luke Skywalker was funny, althogh I did not understand the consept.
    Thanks Amir

  • Shko

    HAHAH Horuden You dumb F***. You were trying to type daisuki as in, “I really like” but you actually wrote characters meaning “big oportunity.”

    And why shouldnt people complain about these vids not actually being from Japan. The point is not where the videos are from, it is about the retarded ignorent people who lump together anyone asian as being the same, and then brand them with labels such as, ‘funny’; which, as a description is a pathetic attempt to disguise the fact that you actually look down on the said group as inferior.

    The simple fact is that actually you are damned ignorent if you cant distinguish Japanese, Chinese, Korean etc.

    It wouldnt surprise me if you couldnt tell the difference between French, German, Russian either.

  • you had me suicidal, suicida. Nurit Hailey.

  • wow, very weird, but cool

  • Dare to take pictures when I am at some restroom, or public bathroom. You are not going to like my reaction at all.

  • exochikaa

    Ah, I was about to comment that some aren’t Japanese CMs, but you already know that. 🙂

  • K

    That Inochi thing is a short done by Takashi Murakami, the artist.

  • pockinna baby

    N. 2 is a French commercial aired in France.
    Mikado is the name of a licensed version of the Japanese snack called Pocky. A french biscuit manufacturer bought license rights from the original Japanese company (Glico) and manufacture a version they call Mikado in Europe.

    The reason its set in Japan is because the name of the French version of Pocky, mikado, is a Japanese word, which is also the name of a game played with wood sticks, in France. So many Mikado commercials are set in Japanese settings. However most French people believe Mikado is a French brand and don’t know its a licensed version of a Japanese one.

    If you type pocky cm on youtube you will be able to see real Pocky commercials.

  • There’s no oto-san, buu.
