  April 26, 2013

As you probably all know from Japanese blogs, Glico (Confectionery company) will launch new commercial featuring 12 members of AKB48.

It’s announced AKB48 will appear Glico’s new commercial for “Papiko”, which will be aired from May.

The commercial will be presented in two different versions.

One version called “Affinity diagnostic” features Oshima Yuko’s question to fans:

“What length I like the best for skirts?”

And the video shows the images of Oshima Yuko in different length of skirts accordingly.

The shortest length of skirt Oshima Yuko wore, which everyone wants to know, is “20 centimeters above the knees”.

The micro Mini, baby!!

During the shoot of this scene, staffs were totally fascinated by her divine figure.

With the release of new commercial, Glico launches the campaign website titled “Split Papiko with the most compatible person in the world”.

*Papiko is supposed to enjoy with your lover as it splits into two pieces.


The most compatible person for each member will be gifted “Insanely rare” Papiko (one piece), which each member split for you by her hands.

The version called “We actually split Papiko for you!”, literally features each member splitting Papiko that will be gifted to the most compatible person for her.

And there was an accident during the shoot. When Oshima Yuko kissed the Papiko, the will be gifted, gloss on her lips is stained on the Papiko.
