What if Haruna Kojima never became an Idol?

What if Haruna Kojima never became an idol?

AKB48 would not be the same without Haruna Kojima.  This is a great YouTube video, subtitled in English  (720 HD available) which examines what it would be like to work in an office with Kojima-san.  If Haruna never became an “Idol” would she be working a regular job in a regular office?  Would she be fun to work with?

If you are a fan, this skit is super funny.   A critic may say that she is just “being herself” here.  She is certainly acting the part of her “airhead” persona, as seen on such shows as AKBINGO.  I doubt if Kojima-san is an “airhead” in real life.  She is an accomplished young woman; singer, dancer, actress, model,etc.   I especially like the interaction between Haruna and her Boss.  At time 2:50 she gets yelled at, and it is hysterical.  I also like that side conversation between the two company-men watching the whole thing through the conference room window. KojiHaru is super cute of course, with that lovely face, great smile and those big “Dumbo ears” of hers.  The video is a lot of fun to watch, and you can even learn something about the use of “honorifics” in Japanese business.   If I worked with Kojima-san, she would be one of those ladies that can just do no wrong.

“I will excuse myself first”.

If Haruna Kojima never became a singer, she could certainly be a professional model.  Here on this next YouTube link, Haruna-chan is featured in a “Peach John” ad.  Watch it in 1080 HD.

This is a great ad.  Although it is a French ad, it made many critics “top ten” lists of the best commercials of 2013.  Haruna only has two lines.  I am not sure if she is the one doing the voice over however. I like that little French guy as the driver.  He’s great in the role.  You have to feel sorry for him, having caused Koji-Haru to loose her gown like that.

One more Haruna Kojima underwear ad for Peach John.  Watch it in the available HD.  Duh.

In this one, Haruna is having a dream where she is running through France in her underwear.  We’ve all been there.  The little French guy makes an appearance in this as well.  Watching this, I kept wanting Haruna to wake up!  I did not want her to be embarrassed.  What a nightmare, to be out in public in your underwear!  Psychologists say this is a common dream.

This ad also reminds me of an old “schoolyard rhyme”.  I obtained it from author Kurt Vonnegut:  whenever a classmate would accidentally expose their underwear on the playground, the kids would all chime:

“I see England,

   I see France,

I see Kojima’s UNDERPANTS!”
