Japan Uses A Giant Monster to Promote Tourism!

Thank you, Japan.


FROM THE visual effects artists who brought Shin Godzilla to life now comes this wild tourism ad which assures us that, if we visit the beautiful Honsho/Kyushu area of Japan, we’ll be safe from big monsters.

That’s because the islands of Honsho and Kyushu are separated by the Kanmon Straits, which boasts a current so powerful that not even a towering monster can withstand it.

The impressive visuals were rendered by artsist at Japan’s cutting-edge VFX house Shirogumi, Inc., the company responsible for the wildly inventive effects seen in 2016’s Shin Godzilla.

Here’s the spot.
