Guai Guai Taiwanese Commercials inspired by Cosplay.

Thanks for Rai on pointing out these commercials for me. I am blogging about this on the premises that the other anime websites won’t probably find out about these commercials until months after the fact, or unless if someone blogs about it. Now these are Taiwanese commercials that is inspired by cosplay, so definitely some language barrier if you can’t hear a word of Chinese. But looking at the cosplay is pretty good. Imagine a world filled with maids, FF7’s or Vocaloid cosplay. ^_^ There are two versions of commercial, a girl one and the boy one.

Here is the girl one:

Here is the boy one:

The premises of the commercials are these…. the boy and girl in the normal school uniforms are practically lectured for not dressing in a cosplay. Guai Guai is Chinese for “good good”. Yet I hear in the commercial, the people who are in authority are (mother and teacher) is mentioning obedience and respecting by listening to them. The message of the commercial is being yourself is a good thing, that even in environments where the normal dress is cosplay, then it is fine. So this cosplay inspiration is pretty far reaching. The commercial is for promoting a chip snack, and there seems to be a contests to see who would doodle the best looking face or something.

I wonder whether or not when would the United States pick up on this premises or something similar to sell their products, or even pass up on this idea. There is that cosplay video with Kristin Dunst, but other than not really seeing it on the net, doubt I’ll see it on prime time
