I think it significant that we only momentarily see Yuzu's face in great detail.  Most of the vid is just showing him almost in silhouette.  The significance?  Yuzu is so well known to the target audience that they really don't have to make any great effort to identify him.  A skater of such slender build and obvious competence can only be one person in Japan.  Enough said.

 

Not just in Japan - in the entire world. Yuzu's silhouette is probably the most recognizable one on this planet. The way he looks and moves - even just as a silhouette - is absolutely unique and impossible to mistake. :pouty:

So basically it’s confirmed the CM had to do with the Olympic opening ceremony? 

 

 

Ahh, would have been so amazing to see Yuzu as torch bearer T_T

 

And the CM looks amazing!!! Love the filming and editing, the only thing that would have made it perfect is if it was Yuzu doing the narration like everyone said...

Though I'm still not sure how exactly gum is supposed to improve your athletic ability, but that's OK :D 

Stress chewing? Kuyashii chewing? (Refraining from chewing judges's heads instead?) :67638860:

It’s amusing me that the camera can’t keep up with him - this should keep us going for a week or two.

Way too optimistic to me😅

:/ a pity it didn't work that way, it would have been pretty epic

on the other hand, maybe now we can hope in another epic Yuzu CM? :smiley-angelic001: (tho maybe I should just settle for hoping there will be Olympics)

I would say it has to do with the Olympics that was supposed to start today, not the opening ceremony in particular. 

This is a tweet by the same person, who seems to have proposed the plan of this CM.

His comment: "The CM I planned especially for this day starring Hanyu Yuzuru senshu has been aired.
What impressed me during this shooting was the sound of Hanyu san's blades resonating with the cold ice rink, which was awe-inspiringly mysterious.
May athletes and those who have been preparing be rewarded."

The narration of this CM uses the negation of negation repeatedly. I think that is because they wanted to reach out to someone who may feel what they have been doing has been negated, and Yuzu is the perfect person to embody and convey their message since people know what he has been through as well as what he has achieved, and that he is still one of the athletes who are competing in uncertainty.

Ah, now I see why the crew was calling him "Sensei" and Yuzu was very friendly to him. I was wondering if he was a sempai or the most experienced among them or something. Soshi Tanaka used to be Yuzu's jump coach.

The CM is basically a 1 min-long cinematographic take on "efforts may lie but will never be in vain" and I approve 100% of the choice 😤

It's absolutely the right, inspiring choice for our times right now.

I've read that chewing gum is supposed to enhance alertness but how that translates into the ice I have no idea.

Made me feel better about how poorly I did when I tried to follow him with my camera at the comps I've been to, if even the pros can't keep up!

Just makes me all the more aware of what we're missing out on...  :(

Maybe a dumb question, but is he any relation to Keiji? Just wondering. 

 

What a wonderful day! Fresh Yuzu on offer!:tumblr_inline_n18qrbDQJn1qid2nw:

Say hello to the new theme guys :tumblr_inline_ncmif5EcBB1rpglid:

Wonderful! And I prefer a feather as an avatar, as I felt a bit awkward, like "impersonating" Yuzuru Hanyu with the previous one.

Spoiler


Of course there's the Rigoletto meaning too? :jester:

:lies:
