Takeshi Kaneshiro wants to change the way you see the world

If there’s an actor who never gets enough publicity, it’s Takeshi Kaneshiro. He’s very low key and private. I suppose he wants it that way, that’s why despite those high-profile film projects and endorsements, he’s somewhat still a mystery. Or maybe it’s those dark, deep and expressive eyes that add more to the mystery. His Biotherm ads were a perfect example and now, even in an airline commercial, it’s those eyes you first notice.



So yeah, EVA Air is the newest member of Star Alliance. This news is significant for me because I’m an SA silver member (been aiming to reach gold for years lol) and EVA Air is a nice airline (not withstanding its Hello Kitty airplane, though I’m not sure if it’s still in service).

And to mark the airline’s entry into the world’s biggest airline alliance, it got no less than Takeshi to star in a commercial shot in Tokyo and Nara, Japan; Paris, and Taitung, Taiwan. There couldn’t have been anyone more perfect for a cross-border commercial than Takeshi, who is of Japanese and Taiwanese parentage.



We travel the world
But do we see the world?

Now, I see.
I see art.
I see dialogue.
I see dedication.
I see trust.
I see paradise.
Fly high.
See more.
I see the world.
I see people.

I see you.



Sometimes I wish that I saw some cities and countries now that I’m older, and not when I was still trying to find myself and my main concern more was to go… shopping. But then, life is a continuous journey, figuratively and literally.

As Takeshi said, change the way you see the world.

And while we’re at it, let’s stop by the road for some GREEN tea.

  1. Omg I love him soooooo much, thanks for bringing this to my attention and I totally agree with you about traveling when you’re older. There are places I wish I’d visited now than years before, but it’s all in perspective I guess 🙂
