This is, perhaps, the most exciting dandruff ad made in the history of the entire world. It’s pretty goofy but real good.


As pointed out by Robotopia on Twitter, Head & Shoulders has kicked off an anime-themed campaign in Japan with a flakey super-spy named “Ando.” Geddit??

The relationship between the spy and the inspector chasing him reminds me of Lupin and Zenigata, but with dry scalp.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.



Every time I see these commercials with amazing animation, I just think of how much talent is wasted by not giving people a chance to break into the industry. So many companies want 4 years experience for entry level jobs. Commercials shouldn’t look this good.
