VIDEO: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Rises From the Grave in Latest "Fashion Monster" Commercial

New song puts the bite on Japanese music charts

Even in a country with no shortage of crazy WTF TV commercials, the current “Fashion Monster” ad campaign has to rank as some kind of crazy high-water mark for Japan.

 

Now, clothing retailer g.u. and PONPONPON songstress Kyary Pamyu Pamyu continue their collaboration in a new short-but-sweet spot for g.u. knitwear that’s certain to activate your Halloween spirit and maybe make you consider stocking up on garlic and holy water at the same time....

 

 

Meanwhile, Kyary’s “Fashion Monster” single, which debuted worldwide on iTunes last week, is currently racing up the Japanese charts, debuting at number 4 on the Japanese Billboard charts and number 1 on Tokyo FM’s COUNTDOWN.jp ranking. 

 

Not bad for a vampire with crazy hair...
