Japanese Vitamin Water Spot Is So Much More New York Than You

Vitamin Water is obviously a CP&B client, but we have very little info for this slightly insane Japanese spot other than the fact that one Himanshu Kumar, aka “Heems” of Dat Racist, wrote the music and that DIESEL artistic director Nicola Formichetti may have provided something resembling creative.

Heems tweeted it out to the world yesterday before proclaiming himself the new, less recognizable Bill Murray. Not sure we agree…

Google translate isn’t helping much, but we’ll go with it anyway: how often do you see an ad repping the theater/restaurant you kept telling everyone you wanted to check out last year if only it weren’t a 65-minute subway ride away? We did glean this nugget from the translator:

“The flavor deployment bright colors, you can enjoy to choose what you like to suit lifestyle and mood, the condition of their own throughout the day.”

Accurate.

The key question: is this submission stranger than the 2012 CP&B spot after the jump?
