Great: Japanese students show ninja skills in commercial [video]

You should probably know that martial arts and fighting skills are very famous on the eastern side of planet Earth, right? In addition to the legendary samurai (professional soldiers who established themselves as military personnel from the 12th to the 19th century), another class of warriors also gained prominence, piquing the curiosity of people around the globe thanks to their mysterious nature: the ninjas!

Skilled spies, assassins, and saboteurs who worked in Japan during the 15th and 17th centuries, many people say that most stories about ninjas are myths, right?

Well, at least that's not what this pair of Japanese students show in the video below, revealing impressive skills in a kind of "ninja chase" through the streets in Atami - a Japanese town located in Shizuoka Prefecture - where a student tries to capture her classmate and she always runs off impressively, always with wild moves (like parkour level “super mega blaster ultra”) like a real ninja - pretty much Jackie Chan's daughter (if he was Japanese, of course!). Check out:

Was it a commercial?

Yes, exactly! The idea of ​​making the video came from the marketing team of Suntory Company, known for a very famous energy drink on Japanese soil: CC Lemon. They decided to use the skills of committed students to show all the versatility to which the drink relates, serving for various times of the day, even after a "ninja chase."

It is noteworthy that several parts of the advertisement are fake scenes, in which various angles and well-made montages were used to try to fool the crowd. The video below shows the making of the commercial, revealing the fake scenes:

The result is so cool that only in the end do you realize that this is a commercial for a product - an advertisement at least original. Phenomenal!
