natalie.mu: “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu sings ‘Mi’ in new ‘Ice no Mi’ CM”
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has now taken on the role of being the image character for Ezaki Glico’s “Ice no Mi” ice candies. A press conference was held on June 17th, where it was revealed that the TV commercial starring Kyary will begin airing on July 1st.
During the opening portion of the event, the Kyary Kids put on a splendid dance for the audience while Kyary appeared from behind doors set up on the stage. When asked about her outfit in the talk session following her flashy entrance, Kyary answered, “The theme of my outfit is that I’ve become an ‘Ice no Mi’.” She also revealed that the design outfit, a colorful and poppy one with many small balls attached to it, was created in conjunction with her stylist: Kyary gave her opinions and ideas to her stylist, who then made her ideas into reality.
When asked about her song “Mi”, which has been adopted as the background music for Kyary’s latest commercial, the singer responded, “It’s a shocking song with a chorus that only has me saying ‘mi mi-mi-mi’. Mr. Nakata Yasutaka made it for this ‘Ice no Mi’ commercial, and I think it’ll sear itself into your ears because of how shocking it is.” It was also revealed by Kyary that the narration for the commercial also only uses the syllable ‘mi’, and that she thought of the poses where she holds the product herself.
In addition to the talk session, it was also announced that an iPhone/iPad ‘Ice no Mi’ app will be released along with the commercial. The app will change anything the user says into the sound ‘mi’, spoken with Kyary’s voice. “Ice no Mi-x Machines” will also be raffled away for those who buy the ‘Ice no Mi’ products. “Just like the name implies, this is an amazing machine you can use to mix the ice together and make your own original ice,” then proceeded to turn on the machine while introducing various ‘ice recipes’. When the ice was finished mixing, she tasted it and exclaimed with a smile on her face, “It’s super yummy!”
The campaign will be held from July 1 to August 31.
