I was watching Q13 news tonite, and right before the sports, a local ad for an Auburn Car dealership came on.
All i heard was Auburn, Japanese and taiko beats.
Here u have an actual taiko song being played, it's many angles
and cuts of Seattle Kokon Taiko! For car folks, its enough car imagery and for taiko fans, there's enough shots that u recognize
the players, and u want to see it again. the shots i remember had Lika, Kosta, Marinda, they were most recognizable. I need to see it again. the drum arrangement was either Kagami or Kaeru..?
Do you recall the other
visual ad with taiko?
It was the fancy editing Mitsubishi's flame & smoke ad where u see blips of an odaiko and
slick poses and standard drumming and dont see a car at all- it gets BORING really fast. WhY? cuz there's not enuff actual
taiko being played and u cant really see the faces.
