Kazuya Kamenashi wishes he could turn into a girl and wear skirts
Transformation was the keyword for KAT-TUN’s Kazuya Kamenashi’s latest commercial, reports Oricon on March 12.
Kamenashi is the latest celebrity to endorse KIRIN’s canned tea drinks 午後の紅茶 (Gogo no Kocha, Afternoon Tea), and took part in an event to promote the product in Tokyo today.
The new commercial shows a normal businessmen transforming into the good-looking Kamenashi after taking a sip of the drink. On the topic of transformation, the press asked Kamenashi what he would want to transform into.
“I’d like to become a woman and wear a skirt. I’m just curious about how it feels. I’d like to wear a skirt and go for a stroll around town.”
Kamenashi said he found it really exciting to work with a motion capture camera for his new commercial.
“The device is so cool. It can tell what I look like from the side when all I’ve been doing is face straight forward.”
While the Johnny’s talent was telling the press he had fun working with the director, who would ask Kamenashi to wink at the camera, the cameramen at today’s event asked him to kiss the can of drink.
“You’re asking for more than the director,” Kamenashi said before hesitating, but eventually giving in and kissing the tea can from different angles.
