Softbank will release a new CM  series of Shirato-Ke(Shirato family) filmed in Rome. The series is a parody of the film 'Roman Holiday', and Ueto Aya imitates Audrey Hepburn, showing a princess-like smile in the CM.

The CM title is "Aya's Holiday"(15second ver. and 30 second ver.), and Aya(Ueto) visits Rome on her vacation. All filming was located in Italy, and they reproduced famous scene in "Roman Holiday". The highlights in the CM are Aya's neat and classic Anne princess style outfit, and the scene when Aya eats gelato at Spanish Steps and rides off with a guy on his scooter around sightseeing spots in Rome.

The filming was very large scale with Japanese and Italian crew as well as around 100 extras. They shot at 10 spots including Trevi Fountain and Bocca delle Verita.

Co-star Higuchi Kanako stated, "This is my second time visiting Italy, but it was my first time in Rome so I was looking forward to being there. Since filming was early morning, there were no other people and it seemed like we reserved those spots for us. It was a really luxurious time. I also tossed a coin into Trevi Fountain wishing to come again Rome. I took a picture with Aya-chan , and Oto-san(white dog) was full of vitality. [Laughs]."

'Aya's Holiday' will first air on March 31st.
