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.© Japan Today
