Tetsuo Hara's (Ken the Warrior) McDonald's commercial

Tetsuo Hara's new McDonald's ad was unveiled last Wednesday in Japan, when it was broadcast for the first time in two different versions: a more concise one, lasting 15 seconds, and an extended one, lasting 60 seconds. The collaboration was born to advertise the new Samurai Mac from McDonald's Japan.

Naturally, since it is a limited edition hamburger destined for Japan, we will never have the opportunity to taste it here in Italy , but we can console ourselves with the vision of this beautiful commercial, which also celebrates the manga's 40th anniversary. Ken the Warrior was created by Buronson and Tetsuo Hara and was first published in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1983 to 1988. In Italy, the work is published and distributed by Planet Manga.
