The commercial is for LOTTE’s chewing gum range “Green Gum”.

The golfer said he had felt privileged to work with the national popstars as he had been listening to the group’s songs since he was little.

He added his personal favourite was “夜空ノムコウ (Yozora no Mukou)”.

“(The lyrics) make me realise that my hard work now is all for my future self.  When I feel down during training, I remember those lyrics and it helps me get back on my feet,” he said.

SMAP member Takuya Kimura (37) had commented on their collaboration in a similar way as well.

“My respect for him grows every time I see how much effort and practice he puts into his work.  I am very happy to have worked with Ishikawa,” he said.

LOTTE’s new commercials will begin airing in Japan from September 27.
