Takki’s voice over for the Johnnys charity fundraiser “Marching J” CM.
Over at the Daiichi Seimei official site, they’ve posted a total of 4 new CMs for Daiichi de Knight. The first series is 「代役はいない」and the other is 「生涯設計のきほん」. Each has 2 versions and the latter has 60s versions, which are of Takizawa Knight reading a book :)
The 2nd round of Takki’s 第一生命「第一でナイト」CMs are now on air! And it comes in 2 versions of the jinsei series – 人生を考えナイト！30代 and 40代. The 30s versions of both CMs can be viewed at the official site. I’ve also grabbed them and am sharing it here only for your personal viewing.
I love it when Takizawa Knight appears on stage at the end :)
Update: The video files have been fixed. Hope you are able to view them now :)
About the Making (translation by bon):
When filming the lemon-squeezing scene, in order to capture the strength/intensity (shown in that scene), there was a loud explosion of sound from the wind that was blasted towards Takizawa-san. Within the 5 story building, even though (the wind machine?) it was set to level 3, the sound was still really loud. Worried, the director thought “I wonder if it will work out?” In the test round prior to the shoot, even Takizawa-san was surprised and laughingly said “Ohh~! This gave me a shock ne! Wow!”
“This is difficult, isn’t it,” he said as he consulted with the director as to how to carry out that image/scene.
But despite this, when it came time for the real shoot, Takizawa-san ignored the “Level 5” sound and shot a wonderful scene in just one take – showing the professional side of him. When the director asked “Do you drink sake?” he said “I love Chu-hai.” When the director jokingly replied “I dont drink though…” he smiled and said “Isn’t that bad?!!!”
I’ve grabbed the videos from the site. Douzo~
