Open source miracle horse-birth advert.

Adland: 

The Register has found a very strange Japanese ad for Open Source software, actress Norika Fujiwara promotes StarSuite - Sun Microsystems' Japanese Office knock off. In one ad, Norika is so stunned by the $18 StarSuite price tag she falls over and gives birth to a foal - the idea is "anything can happen".

"We convey a concept of our $18 strategy as surprising and moving in the ad," said Nori Matsuda, the president and CEO of SourceNext. "The ad basically says, 'Anything can happen.'"
