seaman ship

apophenia has word from Wirefarm about an ad shown in Shibuya. The intent? To recruit Japanese to join the Navy? Very much different from Army Of One ads I remember seeing in the States!

Japan Today's banterish crowd also has things to say about it. Including the following by pgran:

In true Japanese style, it takes 7 sailors to guide a helicopter in for a landing (as depicted in the recruitment poster)

Reminds me of going to Starbucks in Japan: you make your order to the person at the counter and end up hearing the order echoed 3-4 times--once by each of the accompanying workers.
