Japanese TV-commercials

In Japan, they're called CM, which stands for commercial message, and they usually feature famous people and/or songs. You can find these icons of Japan's consumist mentality at CMJapan and CMExploration. As anywhere else in the world, TV advertising is big business, and involves big money. Big money attracts big people - the love story between Hollywood and Japanese Advertising is told by Japander.com. And if you feel like becoming a CM-director yourself, consider taking part in NHK's Mini Mini Movie Competition.
