The latest CM for the candy Puccho featuring several members of AKB48 which is scheduled to start airing either today or tomorrow is causing a bit of a stir online amongst fans. Why is that then? It’s because the new CM features the members sharing Puccho by passing it to each other using their mouths. If you didn’t know any better you’d think they are kissing each other.
The members taking part in the CM are: Acchan, Yukirin, Paruru, Yuko, Mariko, Mayuyu, Sasshi, Rena Kato (the 10th gen kenkyuusei member getting another push), Tomochin and Takamina. They did state that it was difficult at first for them to do this as they’ve never been so close to each others faces before but after several takes they nailed it.
Aki-P is really pushing the boat out as far as sexuality is concerned with SKE48’s PV for Kataomoi Finally and now this. The closest that AKB48 have come to doing something a little risque in the past was the Heavy Rotation PV. Some fans might say they should not do anything like this as they have a duty to be role models for little kids. Do you see this CM as being a little vulgar and disgusting? Having watched the preview for the CM as you’ll see below it’s not soft porn (as I’ve read several people comment), just a little bit of fan service.
