Beyonce, Kimutaku appear in Samantha Thavasa ads

26 Comments

American singer Beyonce Knowles, 27, and SMAP member Takuya Kimura, 35, will appear together in ads for luxury handbag brand Samantha Thavasa from Thursday.

In an official comment, Kimura said, “I enjoyed the time with her. She is really sexy and cute. I can learn many things from her to be a nicer guy.” Beyonce was quoted as saying, "Kimura is very handsome, strong, manly and sexy.”

The ads were made at the end of October when Beyonce visited Japan. The two spent about two hours together in the studio. Beyonce said Kimura taught her some Japanese words.

The ads will appear in the brand's 117 shops nationwide as well as on billboards in Aoyama, Daikanyama and Harajuku. Kimura is the first male model for the brand's ads.

“Kimura is very handsome, strong, manly and sexy.”

btw, she looks old and fat, not at all "sexy and cute", whatever that means

To my best knowledge they are about same height: 168cm. Kimutaku's real height is a subject of much speculation.

By the way, the height of SMAP members seems to be as follows.

Nakai (Publicized height:165cm / Estimated height: 165cm)

Kusanagi (Publicized height:170cm / Estimated height: 167-170cm)

Inagaki (Publicized height:176cm / Estimated height: 173-176cm)

Katori (Publicized height:182cm / Estimated height: 178-181cm)

Kimura (Publicized height:176cm / Estimated height: 168-172cm)

Because that would be like throwing a tooth pick in a whale's mouth!

I like that they chose a foreign woman who is not under 25, not white and not a toothpick for their ad. Variety is the spice of life ;-)

TokyoGas - You've never heard of Samantha whassername?

Jesus, I feel sorry for those who had to work with the two of them. Can't think of a worse pair in terms of being divas.

"Kimura is very handsome, strong, manly and sexy.” BS! No way did she say that about a skinny, feminine Japanese guy. I like Japanese guys but he turns my stomach.

"Kimura is very handsome, strong, manly and sexy" cough...cough... crickets: chirp...chirp...
