i don't know. i don't really like it. all asian countries use chopsticks, why don't they say learn mandarin? i think this could have been pushed a little further and linked it closer to learning japanese.

The first thing I thought of was sushi, and sushi is Japanese. I think you're splitting hairs here.

lets find another way of using chopsticks and then relate it to other stick-like things...hmm...pens!
Now lets do something for writing, no wait, learning chinese, no wait, japanese.

Yeah, bit too generic it seems. Mandarin would have probably been more fitting. After all, 1.5 billion people speak it.

Terrible ad. Not to mention they're holding the 'sticks' all wrong.

This is whack!

They'd have been better showing someone getting a Japanese symbol tattooed on their body with the line learn Japanese. Just because so many people have kanji on them that doesn't mean what they think it does.

I know that isn't a great idea but it's better than chopsticks no?

Doin' it for the points

Nice idea, funny, simple and it works on the target group. What more do you want? You can never make it right for everybody.
An easy message the target group will understand, that's the bottom line.
People forget that ads need to work for the mainstream and not only for creatives.

You take that back!! Japanese have good football players! They are at almost every WC. And dont forget the talented players that now too inhabet European clubs like PSV Eindhoven.

The fact that you Italians have forgotten that football is about the ball and not about how much bribes you can take has really affected your judgement on these matters. The problem with Italians in football is that they are too proud, too cocky.

no dutch, and yes they won... I love Italy, but not its team. If you ask me it is full of arrogant players, lying down at the first chance. Kicking and hitting players in the most sneaky way possible. Yes they won and Kudo's it takes skill nontheless. I just say they didn't deserve it.

No harm meant to Italy, I love Tuscany. My favorite city in the world is Milan, Florence is wonderfull too. Really, just can't stand its football.

It wont be any closer to win anything, but it works.
It would be a little better if they're holding the sticks the right way.

If they used the Sakura (Japan's National flower) or something else that is more representative of Japan, it would have been more relevant. Being an Asian myself and also having studied Japanese, I can honestly tell you that chopsticks are not representative of Japan or its language.
