Japanese "Finger Logo"
Here's some fodder for Body/Comm - a cute girl using gestures in a TV commercial. Photo and text borrowed from Japan Today.
AKB48 member Tomomi Itano, 19, popularly called Tomo-chan by fans, takes part in a promotional event for wireless mobile operator EMobile’s new commercial, “Finger Logo,” in Tokyo on Wednesday. The new commercial, which airs from Saturday, features Itano dancing to her new single “Wanna be now” and making an “E” and “M”’ (for EMobile) pose with her fingers. The pose, which is repeatedly used during the commercial, was “difficult to master,” Itano said.
I wonder how she would do with sign language... And here's the commercial:
