Fall traffic safety, promoted by skating queen

I love how Japan uses celebrities to promote mundane social topics. In this case, figure skater Takahashi Diasuke is promoting fall’s traffic safety, along with our friend peepoo kun, the police mascot at the bottom of the poster. I am not sure what figure skating has to do with urban traffic. But it seems that we may be safer in Tokyo’s streets if our eyebrows are nicely groomed, our mouth open in a giant O, and our outfit tastefully coordinated.



  1. I think we would definitely have more fun EVERYWHERE with well groomed eyebrows and mouth open in a giant O!! Outfit, coordinated or not, is strictly optional!

  2. Reminds me of the time when Michael Jordan was promoting batteries. Can’t, for the life of me, remember the brand… But I do recall thinking, is he really an expert in this area?
