Orlando Bloom to appear in new Uniqlo ads

23 Comments

British actor Orlando Bloom, 33, has been recruited into the cast of Uniqlo's new global ad campaign. He is appearing in a commercial for Uniqlo's winter range that began airing on TV on Thursday.

The ad was shot in a documentary style and shows Bloom snowboarding on a cold winter morning in the gently falling snow, wearing a crew neck Heat Tech top under a down parka jacket. The images are supported by narration from Bloom, who talks about those winter days when you just have to get outside, whatever the weather.

Uniqlo has been pushing for overseas expansion recently using the slogan "MADE FOR ALL." Although Bloom had heard of Uniqlo before, it was his first time wearing the brand himself. His verdict was that, "The clothes are comfortable and the texture's great. They're the kind of unpretentious clothes that anyone can wear."

So Orlando has come back from the dead, haven't seen or heard his name in quite some time. Is the bloom off the Bloom ? Maybe Uniqlo will now sell some larger sizes here finally, I can't find any XL sizes at all there.

The slogan "MADE FOR ALL"" would be nice if it were true, I,m always trying to find the right size, of xl and up but most of the time they don,t have up...and same with the jeans and pants they stop at 92 size most of the time...

Who are you supposed to be? Some kind of gossip columnist?

He probably just had time off. Good luck to him.

“MADE FOR ALL.”

Not sure this is a very appealing slogan. To me Uniqlo’s products look like "MADE FOR THE MASSES" and that does not include me.

"I never thought I'd live to see the day when I would go to Uniqlo with an elf"

"How about with a friend?"

"Aye, that I can do."

Orlando is a handsome devil and he even fits into this tiny Japanese sized Uniqlo stuff! Me?? With my nice Mexican beer and taco belly?? Heck no! Made for all?? Yeah for all the vegetarian, tofu eating skin and bones black coffee and cigarette smoking "beautiful people!" I like Orlando but when will Asian clothe makers understand the beauty of nice Mexican beer gut??

Oh, no, Sarge. I just don't go for clothes manufactured on a huge assembly line, all looking the same, like TV screens pouring out of Chinese factories by the millions.

They do have them, but they're not XL, they're Japanese XL.

The Uniqlo sizes in the UK are all one down from Japan - a Japan L will be a Uniqlo UK M. This accounts for the larger size of Europeans than Japanese.

In other stores, I have seen shirts marked as L for the UK and mainland Europe also have "US M" stamped next to them, to account for the larger size of Americans compared to Europeans.

This means that a Uniqlo L in Japan would logically equate to a USA S.

I fit into Uniqlo just right, in Britain or Japan. My 183cm slender physique is just right.

Well, I sport a slendid bloat at 105 kgs. and am only 172cms. and I can't find a thing to fit me at uniqlo, not even a hat. Now where's that triple cheeseburger I was eating ...?
