October 22 – scream

☆  scream 叫ぶ


One of the useful phrases this week is, “I lost my voice from screaming at the referee!” Ha ha, this reminds me of a great commercial for Ajinomoto stadium from years ago. I wonder if you know it?

In the advert, a young guy has moved to Tokyo to live. He is surprised by all the pretty girls in Tokyo. Then when he hears the girls speak, he is surprised again, because they all have very husky voices. In the end, he meets a girl with a feminine voice, and she explains that she doesn’t go to the soccer games at Ajinomoto stadium.

The final scene is of all the girls at the stadium screaming at the players and referees and supporting their team. And that is why they all had husky voice, too much screaming!

Clever advertising, but very sexist!
