more tarako music to the ears

I was flipping through the imaginatively named “Top Promotions” magazine, as you do, and I noticed something that made me really wish I had the energy  to collect tokens and enter competitions. Although to actually get this, I would also have had to have had a taste-bud transplant.

This Mp3 player has probably been around for a while (“Top Promotions” is monthly, but the article was a “case study” so I have no idea when the campaign actually took place). But I just KNOW you people want to see it, because my last tarako posting is the only one people seemed really interested in.

While I was flipping through the same issue, I also noticed this…

which I also kinda want: A New Balance flash drive from Buffalo (Computer hardware manufacturer).

Been a bit slack, so this post is a bit late.

But, yes, that is Madonna, and yes, that is a building in Tokyo. I can’t believe that of all the things she could put her name to, she has decided to do an ad for a high rise apartment block. Search YouTube to see the TV ad, where you get to hear Madonna say: “Beyond race, beyond gender, beyond religion, beyond culture, beyond tomorrow…” as the camera zooms up to a futuristic looking Madonna who says “Just perfect.” I never knew a building could be so dramatic, or that one could or need be beyond anything… aside from the building in front of it.

Aesthetically-speaking, though, the ad is kind of cool, thanks to fashion photographer Steven Klein ( http://the-artists.org)

To see just what Style Madonna Tokyo Ariake and Brillia Mare is all about, see www.b-m-a.jp which gives the location, images of the kind of views you’ll get from your windows, and apartment floor plans. I had a browse the other day, and if anyone out there can afford one of these… um, will you be my best friend? 🙂
