Who's the Boss? Me or the Old Guy?
It's very common for famous stars to go to Japan and partake in ad campaigns that are hard to ignore. Bill Murray's character in the Suntory Times whiskey ad in Lost in Translation was sort of a satire I guess on the whole thing: American actors who would never, ever do an ad campaign for a pop drink or for a fast food chain, or mass market clothing company in their domestic market will gladly go to Japan and happily lend their face.
In this picture, I was trying to get this shot with no one in the way (which is very difficult at a Tokyo train station), and just as I was ready to snap, a young boy appeared in my frame, and it worked...... downstairs of Ikebukuro Station in the North West corner of Tokyo.......
