On November 26, free announcer Kaito Aiko (28) and actor Shirota Yu (26) appeared at a press conference in Tokyo during which they were appointed “The First Instant Coffee Ambassadors”.
Based on the statistical data collected over the past 50 years by the Japan Instant Coffee Association, the most instant coffee is consumed in the last week of November; to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the association, Kaito and Shirota were chosen as their first pair of ambassadors.
Kaito, who was given a one-year supply of coffee as a present, smiled as she said, “It is an honor. Where should I stow all of this.”
She was asked if she had a partner to drink coffee with in the morning and she answered, “It would be great to have someone like that,” and without a moments delay, Shirota boldly stated, “Drink coffee with me!”
After hearing this, Nakayama Hideyuki (45), the MC of the event, appeared surprised as he said, “That is quite the comment,” and Kaito changed her answer without hesitation to, “Well then, how about the three of us (including Nakayama) drink coffee together.” After hearing that, Shirota acknowledged his failed attempt at hitting on Kaito in public, with a bitter smile and, “Tomorrow’s headline – ‘Shirota, rejected.’”
