Strange 1980s Japanese whiskey commercials

Altjapan posted several amazingly surreal Japanese booze commercials from the 1980s. The best one is the last one, as described in the post:

  1. It’s actually several of his structures. The park, the Sagrada Familia and one of his houses he designed. Otherwise, I have no idea what any of this has to do with whiskey, but it oddly makes me want to learn to breath fire & dance w/ giant insects.

  2. “What truly makes us drunk…is Life!”. Wow.

    This goes well with the [slightly whimsical?] Charles Bronson “Mandom” aftershave ads from Japan.

    and a more interesting but [sadly] shorter Mandom ad from later on.
