It was announced today that popular idol group and AKB48's sub-unit French Kiss will be appearing in a commercial for "7Net Shopping", as well as providing the theme song for the commercial.
French Kiss is a unit made up of Kashiwagi Yuki, Takajo Aki, and Kuramochi Asuka, that debuted with the tagline "A 3-person group you'll want to introduce to your parents." They show off their pure and lovely characters in the CM as well, which features Kashiwagi worrying about what to buy. Ishidzuka Hidehiko (Honjamaka) asks, "What about 7Net?" and recommends their cheesecake. Kashiwagi spreads the news about 7Net by word of mouth, advising Takajo and Kuramochi, "On 7Net you can buy without worrying!"
The three girls commented happily about their first commercial appearance, saying, "Appearing in a CM as French Kiss was one of our goals, so I'm really happy." (Kashiwagi), "I was more nervous than usual! But the atmosphere of the scene was really cheery, so I really enjoyed filming!" (Takajo), and "We've been talking about appearing in a CM together for forever, so achieving our goal made me really happy." (Kuramochi).
Kashiwagi also revealed the troubles they had while filming, saying "Cleanly making the '7' sign with our hands was really hard. If we were even a little off, the take was no good, so we practiced over and over with Ishidzuka-san."
The song being used to promote the commercial, "Kimi Nara Daijoubu" will be included on their third single, "Kakkowarui I love you!" out May 11th, and a portion of mobile sales for the song will be donated to the Tohoku earthquake disaster victims through the Japan Red Cross.
French Kiss's new "7Net Shopping" commercial will be broadcast beginning on the 15th.
