Pretty but cryptic ad poster / Hajime Watanabe for Lejay-Cassis.

This gorgeous shot is taken by photographer Hajime Watanabe for Lejay-Cassis.

I'm curious though, is delirium tremens something that Lejay-Cassis considers a selling point? Japanese advertising is always a bit "out there" in my eyes, most likely because I'm not Japanese and thus am probably missing a large part of the idea. Or maybe Japanese ads are just plain weird, take your pick. I do wonder, if we had seen the model in the mirror instead of the bottle where exactly would the mans hand be placed on her body? He's cusping her tit isn't he? "Ah, Lejay, your bosom is smooth and perky like a red currant"

Japanese children foundation ad - "The Whale" - (2006) Japan

Ah yes, a school, a classroom and of course children busy drawing. This opening is seen in almost as many ads in adland as the classic wedding scene. But, one child only draws with the black crayon, and fills the paper with black.

Bizarre Japanese "Passion of Christ" billboard.

Here is a photo of a billboard in the Ebisu subway station Japan. It appears that some advertising company was asked by a Tokyo distributor to do a special ad for Christmas for the Passion of the Christ DVD. Apparently nobody who was actually Christian got to review the ad before it was posted for thousands of people to see on their way home for Christmas Eve.

All credit to Josh who created the jjnotablog and took the pic.
