Shiina Ringo has enter TV commercial
Shiina Ringo (30) is one of the more talented singer-songwriters in Japanese pop. With a strong independent spirit, she has maintained a rare non-populist and uncommercial approach to her career as a solo artist and as vocalist of the band Tokyo Jihen. Until now. From today she is appearing in her first ever TV commercial, for the Glico product Watering Kiss Mint gum. She doesn't speak in the CM but does a neat bit of moonwalking, and it features the latest Tokyo Jihen song "Nodoteki Sanpunkan."
