On May 24th, Zespri held a press conference to announce the appointment of actress Ishihara Satomi as their new image character for 'Zespri Kiwifruit' in 2012 and to reveal their new CM.
In the CM, Ishihara plays a spiritless young woman who transforms into the energetic 'Kiwi Honey' after having a kiwi for breakfast. Full of energy, she rushes out of her house to downtown. Similar to the popular 'Cutie Honey' character, she had to strike various flashy poses.
"I was quite bewildered in the beginning," she commented. "The poses were more difficult than I expected. I didn't keep track of how many NG scenes I produced, but we had to take out quite a lot of poses."
Aside from the abundant amount of Vitamin C in a kiwi, Ishihara revealed her own source that gives her energy. She said, "It has to be my close friends, I guess. I'm always getting in high spirits whenever we go and have a meal or go shopping together." One of her close friends is said to be Matsui Erina, a TV personality and gravure idol. "Work, family, love. We always talk about all kind of things," Ishihara explained.
The new CM called 'Cutie Honey - Gold Green' will start airing in 15-second and 30-second versions on May 25. On said day, all TV networks nationwide are also going to air the 15-second version simultaneously at 6:59:45 pm.
