Something weird just for you – High School Girl?
We all hate commercials but not all commercials especially Japanese commercials. Japanese commercials tend to be cute, bizarre or fun or all three of the above. AnimeFanatika found a nice little commercial of a bunch of high school girls chilling out in a classroom. Some are reading or playing guitar, the usual things schoolgirls get up to in a classroom. But then in the middle of the commercial something shocking happens… This is a SHISEIDO cosmetics commercial with a difference! Have a look at this commercial!
