A short revolving around the Japanese proverb: "Hair is the heart of a woman". Beautiful animation directed by Kazuto Nakazawa!

Amaazing! This is the best shampoo commercial which was ever made.
At first glance, this animation reminded me of: xxxholic, ghost in the shell: innocence, and studio 4 work.
Fortunately, i was right O.O
animation director is Kazuto Nakazawa, he is famous for his animation in Kill bill.
character design was made by Shuichi Hirata ( who worked on ghost in the shell innocence and xxxholic movie).
if you want to watch this commercial, simply go to youtube and write: Hairy Tale

It feels strange to write a review about a commercial. As far as advertisements go this is definitely one of the more unique examples. What seemed like a trailer for an anime version of Rapunzel turned out to be a highly stylized commercial for shampoo. With a run time of just over a minute there's not much to say, but its certainly more entertaining than most commercials I've seen.
