Reina Triendl joins White Family in Softbank Mobile ads

19 Comments

Model Reina Triendl is making a guest appearance in Softbank Mobile's Shirato (White) Family ads.

Triendl, 20, plays a "student from Hawaii" who comes to Japan for a homestay with the Shirato family. "I'm Tada. I'm from Hawaii," she says in the ad. Wearing a school uniform, Triendl is a modern girl who uses "gal" language.

She communicates well with other family members played by Aya Ueto, 26, and Kanako Higuchi, 53, who believe she is from the U.S. state of Hawaii, but in reality, she is from Hawai in Tottori Prefecture.

This Maedchen doesn't look Viennese at all...!!

Let's hope she'll stay in Keio to complete her studies.

Maybe she's playing one of those Hawaiians who goes to those otaku conventions.

As an avid ViVi reader, I'll admit Reina is cute. Shame about her personality though.

Next please.

These Softbank commercials may be the clearest expressions yet of Japan's ambivalence toward multiculturalism, restructured family roles, and identity formation in a postmodern globalized economy.

Or maybe they're just funny commercials made to sell phones.

Wow, I was not aware that 20 year old modern girls in Hawaii wore school uniforms.

I have to admit, I love these ads. They are the only ones that don't make me roll my eyes or change the channel. They're clever and funny. And who doesn't love a cute, talking dog??

トリンドル is a cutie but her arms are about as thick as the piping under my sink. Feed this girl some KFC or something!

I think your missing it. Softbank's payment plan is called the White plan, hence the "Shirato" Family name. That's why their mascot is a white dog. Its a play on words (granted not a clever one) but that's why it works.

Shirato (White) Family ads.

Right. Like we should translate names now. Tiger Woods can be Hayashi Tora and Kawanaka Miyuki can be Beautiful Fortune Middle River. Great plan.

And wouldn't it be the Whitehead family anyway?

"Hawai in Tottori"

They should hook up with Obama in Fukui.
