Arashi is in new TV CM for JAL

Popular group Arashi has starred in a new CM for Japan Airlines (JAL) as their image characters.
In this new endorsement, they are featured in a summer vacation trip with an alien who offers a free trip to these five members, and they energetically take up the offer. However, the travel proves to be less than satisfactory due to the unfamiliar noise, foul-smelling environment, and odd colored drinks. Despite that, they endure the situation because it’s free until member Ninomiya Kazunari states, “But there is JAL’s Sakitoku deal available,” and introduces JAL’s advance purchase deal.
During the shooting of this new endorsement, the members of the group showed much curiousity in the alien, who took two hours to put on his special makeup, and asked questions like, “How do you breathe?”
This new CM, “JAL ARASHI LABO: Summer Vacation Sakitoku ‘One’s Feeling While Driving’”, started airing in Japan on the 9th.
