Advertisement for Sharp's Touch Wood SH-08C cell phone. Kenjiro Matsuo created the xylophone and the music is Bach's Cantata 147, 'Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring.'

Shameful display of capitalist greed.

Good commercial, good art, good product, and good styling;... yet they named it "touch wood"?? :-\

/You said "wood" Heh Heh Heheheheh
