I have a real soft spot in my heart for Japanese gaming advertisements. I love the conviction, the wackiness, and the passion-filled songs that just don't seem to have made it to advertising back here in the Western world. 

Today, we were treated to yet another gem in the form of a Japanese advert for Tearaway Unfolded on PS4. It has an elderly Dora the Explorer lookalike gaining laser eye powers, faces on fingers, and one of the catchiest advertising songs I have heard in a while.

YES!!! I am so in to this damn advert. I've had it on loop for far too long this morning.
