AKB48 does kagome vegetable drink CM

while it may not be big news, one can say this CM indicates the growing solidification of akb’s influence on japanese media.  akb48 participating in CMs have been a bit sparse, a few here and there; the only large CM they have done was for AOKI suits with the release of their last single ‘sakura no shiori’.  a vegetable drink isn’t much, but it seems to be more widely spread and has a less “we’re akb48! pay attention to us!” attitude, which can signify that they’re becoming more comfortable appearing in these ads without pointing to themselves as an up-and-coming idol group.

miyazawa sae with said drink

this could lead to more mainstream opportunities for the group.
