If anyone can transform the drinking of fruit and vegetable juice from a quotidian activity into a disturbing maelstrom of sexual confusion, the Japanese can. And they will. And they have. Behold the Japanese ad campaign featuring an apparently sane woman who is none the less inexplicably having a slightly angsty sexual relationship with a man made from vegetables. Or she’s not sane at all and we’re witnessing a severe form of schizophrenia. In either case, somebody took the brand name I Love Vegi a little bit too literally. You can love vegetables without making love to vegetables, OK?
女性「あなたなんて好きにならなければよかった」Woman: It’s weird that I fell in love with you, but I’m glad.
ベジ「それは、僕が野菜だからかい？」Vegi: Is it because I’m a vegetable?
女性「あんなに・・・嫌いだったのに」You don’t… dislike me that much, do you?
ベジ「そういうものみたいだよ、恋愛って」Vegi: It’s like, this love thing, what is it?
女性「ねぇ、ベジ」Woman: Hey, Vegi.
女性「もし、もしもよ、私たちに子どもができたらさぁ・・・」Woman: I wonder, I wonder if we had children…
女性「人間かなぁ・・・野菜かなぁ」Woman: Would they be humans… or vegetables?
