Shusaku Endo Stars in Hilarious Commercials!

Tomorrow (Sept. 29) marks the anniversary of the death of Japanese novelist Shusaku Endo…

Endo’s novels, including SILENCE, are dark and deep reflections on the human condition…
 
We were therefore quite surprised to stumble upon these lighthearted Japanese commercials starring the novelist, presumably undertaken in a tongue-in-cheek fashion…
 
So, in memory of the fullness of his life and work, enjoy these commercials!
