I’m going to lay of the beats today with a discussion/topic and debate today, guys. I’m surprised that nobody had mention this article/news yet. Chech this out:
Toyota Commerical – Hatsune Miku:
Yep. So apparently, it seems that Vocaloid Hatsune Miku is starting to break a US Debut inside a Toyota commercial. Yes guys, this is going to be aired up in America. I think maybe Canada too…well, one can hope. I myself am getting too hyped up for this, I know.
However, the discussion topic here is, will Americans actually accept this commercial? I mean, if Toyota really does air this on TV in America, will the people even bother? I know that many stereotypes out there say this is just plain BS and I even think that not much Americans will even know who Hatusne Miku even is. YTs responses are like a mix of positive and negative at the same time and this issue is brewing up for quite some time.
In my personal opinion, I would really love this debut. You may say that I’m just biasing because you all know I’m a huge crazed fan of Hatsune Miku but I also see the other side of this. Like some others say, think this commercial as more like Hatsune Miku being used by Toyota to be introduced to US and not the other way around, of using Hatsune Miku’s already hyped up Japanese fanbase to increase Toyota’s popularity. Besides, I heard that creators at Crypton FM is already planning a concept stage into making an english voicebank for Hatsune Miku so that means that this commercial is basically like killing two birds with one stone, if Crypton is actually going to make their Vocaloids to ship them overseas into North America.
So here’s today’s biggest question: What’s your opinion on this article? Comment that below and set up a debate guys cause I want to know all your opinions on this.
