Vending Machine Red! For great justice!

This is a Coca-Cola TV ad from Japan. There have been 4 episodes of the adventures of Vending Machine Red, and this one is the best yet. In it, Vending Machine Red, transforming robotic bringer of refreshment, visits the Japanese Diet building. The Diet is equivalent to Congress here in the US. Note how absolutely flustered and flabbergasted the local cops look while having to deal with a guy cosplaying as a vending machine robot.

They really could bring these ads over to the US, and play them on "hip" cable channels like Comedy Central and Cartoon Network's Adult Swim bloc. All they would have to do is subtitle them. The subtitles wouldn't even have to be right.
