Picture this commercial:

Godzilla advances menacingly on Osaka Castle. One of the gumbys on the ground points and crys, "Look! It's Godzilla!" as the monster pulls the castle down. The monster then stomps off into the sunset.

This commercial is advertising:

a) translation software
b) wine
c) pet food
d) jewelery

Ah, I'm curious to see what everyone guesses on this one. I'll post the answer later. Give me comments on what you think it is!

(No real reason for the icon, other than that I was thinking it's been a while since I used it.)

Shot in the dark: pet food? Godzilla was hungry and the castle was his snack.

But knowing Japan, the commercial could quite possibly advertise all 4 of those options seamlessly.

Ah, but this is not a Japanese commercial. It's aimed at an American audience.

What, really? I... well then. o_o America has changed while I've been living under my rock, apparently!

I've actually seen this one, so I suppose it would be cheating if I were to answer. :P

Pet food. Feed our brand to your kitty and you will have a KAIJUNEKO!

Bah, we've already got two of those and we didn't need any Godzilla-brand pet food for that. ;)

You have Maine Coons too? :-)

I'll guess translation software - no delay for the translation. Hehe

Jewelery, just because it makes the least sense to me. I could see the other three (barely, but still).

Jewelry commercials here usually make absolutely no sense.

...Translation software.
