Gundam + Nissin Cup Noodles Commercial = Boil Japan.

How awesome is this ??!!

Japanese Cup Noodle maker Nissin and Sunrise band together to create this mind-blowing Gundam Nissin Cup Noodle commercial –

Folks who have been visiting my blog for a while will probably know my love for Nissin Cup Noodle commercials, having worked on the Freedom Project commercials/anime series back in 2006, a collaboration between Sunrise and Nissin, just like this one. Good times. :]

This is series of motivational “Ganbarre Japan” commercials aimed to raise spirits ( and sell more noodles, of course ) in wake of the Sendai tsunami and earthquake earlier this year. I’ll follow up with more in later posts.

Simple concept, probably wouldn’t work if the robot is any other but Gundam.


The concept is spot on.


Genius. How tough is it to sell noodles on the back of a horrible natural disaster without looking like you’re taking advantage?
