Dogs, 7-11, And Japanese Banks

I have no idea what the fug this is all about, but dammit, it certainly caught my eye!

These are ads from 2015... so no need to say just how on top of new things I am... at least this one was from the current decade. 


Anyhow... this is Inuyama Shibao (translated the name means Dog Mountain Shibao... I have no idea what Shibao means, and neither did any on-line translator), and he is a Shiba dog. Inu is Japanese for dog, while yama is mountain.

Inuyama is the doggie sensation shilling for Seven Bank, Ltd. Seven Bank (株式会社セブン銀行, Kabushiki-gaisha Sebun Ginkō) is a Japanese bank, and is a subsidiary of Ito-Yokado, along with Seven & I Holdings Co., Ltd. (parent company of 7-Eleven Japan and of Ito Yokado). 

Inuyama is the doggie sensation shilling for Seven Bank.

For people like me in North America, knowing I could get a loan and purchase a bag of chips at the same time is mind-blowing. P-koooooow.

Okay, not really. Seven Bank is a real banking institution with ATM machines all over the place. And, should you go into a branch office, you can NOT purchase a Slurpee, or anything like that. 

Anyhow... I can't embed this video, but you can click HERE for the video to watch it on someone's FaceBook page.

Kanpai,
Andrew Joseph
