Sea Chicken Star Wars
The Tuna is strong in this one.
There was a great disturbance in the Force when Japanese canned food producer Hagoromo Foods, one of Japan’s most famed producers of ‘sea chicken’ tuna fish in a can, broadcast the below “Star Wars” sea chicken commercial back in 1978.
Using the Force, Hagoromo Foods seems to suggest that the galaxy far, far away would have found peace if only they had the opportunity to indulge in a bit of Hagoromo canned tuna together. Incidentally, the hit film “Star Wars” had opened in Japan the same year that the sea chicken commercial was broadcast.
I wonder if the commercial is a complete rip-off or back in 1978 George Lucas got a silent cut for it and just thought that nobody outside of Japan would ever see it.
