Fuzzy stomachs love Yakult probiotic drinks


There's nothing like a goofy anthropomorphic stomach to get the juices flowing. Following on Fazoli's genre-defining effort from a while back comes this Siltanen & Partners commercial for Yakult, an unfortunately named Japanese probiotic drink. Our heroine, who is in serious need of a boyfriend, or at least a cat, is shown palling around with her digestive system, which keeps gurgling and looks all cuddly and fluffy (a bad gastroenterological sign in real life). They play tunes, go horseback riding, share housework, exchange Christmas gifts and (in a questionable bit, given the product being advertised) blow soap bubbles. She even takes it to work. Which reminds me, I have to hit the men's room. That yogurt I had for breakfast is turning my insides out.
