While North America got home-grown popstar got Justin Bieber for Google Chrome commercials, Japan got a homegrown star of its own for Google Chrome ads. Make that, a virtual homegrown star.
Oddly, Toyota once used a westernised Hatsune Miku to shill cars in America. Considering how Hatsune Miku went virtual and then mainstream in Japan, Google Chrome ad makes perfect sense. That Toyota one was just wacko.
