Candy In The Media

Japan has always had their share of strange commercials, as well as commercials that feature some serious sexual themes.  The reason this commercial doesn't creep me out as much as other North American candy commercials with sexual overtones, is that Japanese culture doesn't look at candy and snacks the same way western cultures do.  In Japanese culture adults eat snacks and candies as much, and maybe more, than kids.  It's not an age defining thing, candy eating happens at any age.  They even specifically design some treats for adults, and they create candy commercials for adults as well.
