Nissin’s Hungry Days commercials previously featured the high school-aged Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service, as well as Heidi from Heidi: Girl of the Alps. They even featured Sazae-san in her younger days. But for this latest ad, they turn to Hollywood, and focused on the film, Armageddon.
Like the three previous ads, they also released two versions of the CM. However, these ads didn’t feature BUMP OF CHICKEN singing the theme song, “Kinen Satsuei”. Instead, it features Armageddon’s theme song, “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith.
Armageddon stars Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Aerosmith vocalist Steven Tyler’s daughter, Live Tyler. The film became very successful, as it even got an Academy Award nomination.
In the CMs, it features two original characters as a boy tries to confess to a girl amidst Armageddon. Well, if the world’s ending, what do you have to lose, right?
