This will be a quickie, but I absolutely must share. I used the camera function of my iPhone to snap a picture of the ad pictured to the left, to test out the quality. I am pleasantly shocked at the picture quality! Yeah, I'm loving the iPhone man :). (Update: Actually, I'm not so happy with the quality.)
Anyway, this ad is a part of an ad campaign for Tokyo Metro that promotes train etiquette. The campaign has been running for over a year now and in the past has focused on applying make-up on the train, listening to loud headphones, talking on your cellphone while on the train, wearing extremely large bookbags, etc. I love this campaign, I hope it never ends because the ads are great!!!!
I hope they create one about Japanese men picking their noses on the train. I mean, it is quite disturbing to witness grown men deep in their noses while riding the trains. [Tokyo Metro Advertising Geniuses, if you are reading this, please consider spotlighting the Tokyo-Train-Riding-Nose-Pickers....please!]
The caption at the bottom should read: "You are NASTY, get a tissue and do it AT HOME!"
Anyway, all is well in Tokyo-- It's hot! It's humid! Ooohweeee it's hot AND humid! And, I think we have reached a point that is beyond Alabama humidity! Indeed Atsui is definitely a conversation!
