Promoting oranges is presumably not easy, as, even in the far from exciting world of fruit, the citrusy snack is not exactly special. Still, Sunkist’s plan of producing an Orange Day Princess was novel if nothing else, and Aki Hoshino proudly appeared as the publicity pin-up.
Plus, despite her knockers, the 31-year-old model pulled off a passable job at posing with the product, as well as cleverly quipping, “I’d like to marry by 40, which is the age when I’d look good in a wedding dress. Like oranges, please ‘eat me’ before I go bad.”
The only trouble is, with Hoshino more famous for her melons, the message may well get a bit muddled.
