Cooking knives (TV ad)

A sushi chef in a seventeenth century Japanese market (during Edo period) is seen cutting meat in his shop. We see the chef open the screen and suddenly the flies from the meat goes on to land near a sumo wrestler who was sleeping. As the flies buzz near the nostrils and ears he tries to wipe it away. “Cut it off.” Then the man in his red loincloth with his coiled hair leaps up chases him around with the meat cleaver and after five minutes we see that all his slashes complete missed the chef, but all his meats are cut. This ad for cooking knives can be transformed into a cartoonesque sketch of Japanese prints.
