Lipton appoints Kou Shibasaki as image character

14 Comments

Actress-singer Kou Shibasaki, 28, took time out from her nationwide concert tour to return to Tokyo this week for an event at which she was named an "image character" for Lipton's Limone tea brand.

Shibasaki, who revealed a new hairstyle, will appear in a series of TV ads for Limone. The singer said all the usual things, such as how the tea refreshed her and how she always has some during breaks when she is singing or on a film set because it gives her energy.

Miss Lipton’s Limone Tea? Is that her really standing there? Or is that a cardboard cut out?

Sweetened tea is very bad tasting. Limone is one of the worst products on the market, together with the morning/afternoon tea in a bottle.

There's enough sugar in a bottle of Lipton tea to send half a dozen OAPs cartwheeling around, whooping, so I'm not surprised it gives her energy (allegedly). Bad picture, though. Kou's a real cutey.

She should have had kept that bad-ass look from Battle Royale...

I think it is a cardboard cutout too.

Why her?! For Lipton, I assume they could bring someone that her Lip-Tone was attractive! The lips on this lady look awkward!

An image character??? So not even a person any more? That's a shame because as others have said she is cute.

Loved her in "Galileo." Not too bad of a singer, either.
