Rena and Lisa make up Vanilla Beans, a Japanese pop idol duo with a fanciful style that separates them from typical J-pop groups. The two recently appeared at Tokyo's Shibuya Crossing to promote their new music single with an interesting publicity stunt -- dressed as retro flight attendants, they sat inside a window-fronted truck for passer-bys to watch and wonder, "What in the world are those strangely dressed girls doing in there?"

Sitting inside a closed window display all day can get boring, but the two thoughtfully brought something to pass the afternoon.



It looks more like an advertisement for the Nintendo DS Lite than a promotion for a music single!

Their song, "Nicola," is actually a nice tune, and the complementary music video is fantastic as well. The latter's low-budget look and dancing pilot in the background are smile inducing.


Flying Vanilla Beans Airlines certainly looks a lot more fun than flying with the airlines we have in North America!
