Tapir Commercial

This is exactly what the healthcare debate needs. I live in Japan right now, and I happened to see a health insurance commercial with a malayan tapir in it.

I can’t find a YouTube video at all so I can’t embed it, so I will just have to link to the site that has them.

Japanese commercial for health insurance.

Hey Kento. They use cartoon tapirs on the “check both ways before crossing the street” signs in my neighborhood. I don’t know why.

Rachel, if possible, could you send me a picture? You know my email address.

This commercial is kind of clever… In Japanese “Baku” or tapirs eat bad dreams. I guess they’re implying that if you buy their health insurance you won’t have any nightmares in the future.
