From the classy Debonair to Jake Blues in a Minica, a treasury of JDM Mitsubishi TV ads
The best TV advertisements in history were made by Japanese car companies for their home market during the 1970s and 1980s. You get your screeching tires, your macho voiceovers, your science-fiction sets, and your slo-mo schmaltz, all overlaid with famous gaijin appearing in unexpected places. Here’s a collection of Japanese-market Mitsubishi ads from the 1960s through the 1990s, assembled by a thoughtful Japanese YouTube user.
Was that the real John Belushi, dressed up in his Jake Blues outfit and snagging a fistful of yen for advertising the Minica? Probably not, since Belushi died in 1982 and this car appears to be a 1984-1989 model.
