Yoshida You and Suzuki Rio's cover of Yellow Magic Orchestra's "Kimi ni, Munekyun." is being used in Pocari Sweat's latest CM.
In the CM, you can watch Yoshida and Suzuki doing the Awa Odori and getting ready to go swimming in the ocean. Their cover of "Kimi ni, Munekyun" was arranged by YMO's Takahashi Yukihiro.
Takahashi revealed that the CM production staff contacted him asking if "Kimi ni, Munekyun" could be arranged for Japanese dance, in particular, Awa Odori. For this arrangement, he "incorporated Okinawan music with African rhythm and beats." He commented, "When I thought about how it would sound all mixed together, I thought it would be ridiculously fun."
