Natto Angel / 納豆エンジェル

In my time in Japan, I have come across some pretty epic (as well as some hyper-annoying) product jingles on TV and in supermarkets, but this one really takes the cake.

Natto Angel, a natto jingle done in the style of turn-of-the-millennium Morning Musume. Think “Love Machine”, only about natto. (Only, the artist is actually AKB48, which makes it EVEN WORSE)

The tape player looping this song was on top of one of the coolers, and as I leaned there, holding my phone up to it to get good quality audio, pretending to look like I was interested in the vegetables there, but too tired to stand alone, I must have looked a right tosser. But I did it all for YOU!

NATTO BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAM!
