I see what Zeke is saying.
It makes sense to me,sort of.:laugh
Two kinds of queens. The kind from the game and a queen of racing. But it just isn't at all obvious. Maybe it is because we do not live in Japan so we don't get it. At least the visuals are nicely done.:thumbsup

This CM is just PERFECT and stunning!

For someone living in Japan (as I am) it makes sense... I mean a commercial playing on the "nonsense" of the scènes which makes it fun. There even oneof the soldier saying "Hey, that sounds wrong!" lol

Since her English has improved so much I don't mind her using the odd line of English anymore... It used to make me wince, but still I don't really see the point.

The advert is a bit of fun, it works fine.

TBH, I was confused when I first watched the CM, wondering whether ayu is endorsing 2 games at the same time: a racing game and that of COQ and then both have a cross-over collaboration lol

I can't think this is a renewed vision for Ayu with her career, but it's so wonderful to see her not only doing a CM, but promoting a new song through a CM, and clearly enjoying her work on a CM for the first time in years.

I have missed this side of Ayu:

The meaning behind the Race Queen is simple. They're calling to people to play and to become quickly the true queen of the game. As if it was a race. Who will be the best(= first place on the podium) Queen of the game?
Race Queen appears in the medieval setting and the speaker is saying "Clash of the Race Queen". That's why your assumption "Race of Queen vs Clash of Queens" that is based only on the first part of the ad, is wrong Zeke. It's not an opposition but the same Queen. ;)

Ayuangel tweeted the 15sec CM, I'm surprised it hasn't shown up on this thread! (I might have missed it!)

I'm not impressed at all with the song so far, not that it's bad, but it's nothing special to me. But then again, that's what I thought about Wake me up when we first got the CM and it turned out to be my favourite song on LOVE again!

These types of songs are never really my favorite, but it is nice. Glad we're getting new material. And it's nice to see her in an elaborate commercial again~

The lyrics, if anyone's interested:

Yes, we are the queens
倒れたなら
強く立ち上げればいい

Yes, we are the queens,
if we fall down,
we should just get back up, strongly

There's an even longer CM in the "Clash of Queens" thread in the "Ayu Celebrity News" forum :)

But I think it'd be nice to add it to the first post because it has the song preview, so it's quite relevant.

My bad I missed that, I only checked the thread dedicated to the song!

After listening to the CM once more, I found the transition between the Japanese sentence and the second "Yes, we are the queens" quite rough, could it be that they copy-pasted the chorus?

30-second CM with a longer preview of the song:

The lady in the TV report said "The new song is planned to be released on 9/30"

Wow that is so soon!
I like it a bit better now, I do like my "Wowows" in an Ayu song :p

I must admit that it feels good to discover a song in a CM, reminds me of so many singles!

axmish87 15th September 2016 11:02 AM

I got T.M Revolution vibes from this song :-D
Love it and CM as well

freedreamer 15th September 2016 12:04 PM

kendelle 15th September 2016 12:06 PM
