Relax with Eleven Minutes of Japanese Canon Commercials from the 1980s and ’90s

Real world problems got you down? I feel you. What you need is to disconnect with eleven minutes of vintage, Japanese commercials from Canon. With everything from anthropomorphic rabbits to stop-motion animated spider-aliens with Canon T90s for heads (what!?), these Canon ads will have you smiling in no time.

Some are great, some are weird, some border on pervy, and they all have us wondering, “What were they thinking?”


And if you’re a Nikon shooter, we posted those ads a long time ago. Take a look.

    Very interesting! Most of the actors and actresses were (and still are) famous in Japan. The most famous one of them is Takeshi Kitano, now known as a film director or a actor. At that time he was a comedian. This clip is interesting even for Japanese people.
