Darth Vader’s Pachinko Ads Are Scary

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jan 12, 2011 in Japanese TV, Star Wars |

These have to be the most confusing Japanese ads I’ve ever seen. In fact, had I not researched it further, I doubt I would have realized they’re for a pachinko machine — Sanyo’s Star Wars Fever. The machine hit the market a few years back and while I’m not sure you’d still find them littered through out Japanese pachinko parlors, you’ll probably find one if you look hard enough. I’d rather just sit back and enjoy these terrifying, yet hilarious commercials. I just love the Empire’s fleet of Darth Vader themed 747s  — or are those suppose to be B-52s. It’s hard to tell.
