Abs aren't just for show anymore!

An oldie, but a favorite. this crazy commercial stars Japanese actor Takashi Ukaji, and shows off the importance solid core strength while advertising the Wonder Core ab bench. The commercial shows Takashi in everyday situations that soon evolve into wacky predicaments where the abdominal strength he has built up due to using the Wonder Core saves him from certain tragedy. The scenarios start off simple enough, like slipping on a bar of soap in a public bath--but quickly things get out of hand and there are alien blasters and clotheslines being tossed around!
