When you combine Japan's reputation for eccentric and attention-grabbing commercials with a price drop for a major gaming system, you have a natural recipe for a couple minutes of fun. With the announcement of the PS4 Slim, set to sell for 29,980 yen (5,000 yen less than the PS4 today), Sony Japan took the opportunity to not just roll out a funny commercial--but one with a totally artistic and dramatic flourish!

The commercial features renowned Japanese author Ichiyo Higuchi, who adorns the Japanese 5,000 yen bill. In it, she comes to life and sings a dramatic ballad about the price drop and the same-day release of Persona 5. This includes some dancing, romantic scenes, and a rain of 5,000 yen bills. If you want people to at least remember the price drop, this is the way to do it.
