Asahi Nama Beer Commercial with Yui Aragaki (新垣 結衣) 2022
Further continuation of the Asahi Nama Beer commercials with Yui Aragaki (新垣 結衣) trend. Ms. Aragaki is a Japanese actress, model, singer, and occasional radio show host. What the Japanese refer to as a タレント (Talent).
Yes, we get to hear the good old “お疲れ生です” (おつかれなまです) again in 2022. She’s telling a dad joke, a pun. Or as they say in Japan, an oyaji gag (親父ガッグ). “お疲れ様” (おつかれさま) means something like “thanks for the hard work”; basically “you have worked hard and it is over now”. Usually said when leaving work for the day. The お疲れ (おつかれ) is the tire/fatigue part; and the 様 (さま) is a polite name suffix. Change that 様 (さま) to 生 (なま) , and we have a pun. 生 being “fresh” or “raw”, and when used with beer, it means draft.
I put in both the 15 second and 30 second spots this time.
