SMAP Softbank CM featuring Marina Bay Sands Singapore

The eternally youthful SMAP were in Singapore on 3 March to shoot a commercial for Softbank, a Japanese telco company. Filmed at the Skypark atop the glitzy Marina Bay Sands hotel and set to the bopping tune of Locomotion, the CM shows off the Singapore skyline to stunning effect. Do check it out!

Below is an older CM by SMAP, also for Softbank. The SMAP boys still haven't lost their cheeky charm after two decades in the business.

I shake my head at SMAP!! They are so camp!!! And I will never understand their explosive popularity >.< When I was in Japan, every second drama, variety show or CM had one of them in it!!

I have no idea, I noticed that too and thought it looked nothing like the Merlion!

They edited the merlion to make it look like SoftBank's mascot, the Otou-san dog.
