Day 26 – Friendly Dog

Okay this isn’t just any dog, it’s Otousan from SoftBank! SoftBank is one of the telecommunications giants in Japan. It is also the company I paid tens of thousands in yen to for my phone bills. I had a love-hate relationship with SoftBank for three years. I hated the hidden fees, the long contracts, the “system errors” that would occur when we tried to cancel extra package add-ons to our plans… but I loved their mascot. I know, so shallow. But just look at him! otosan2And if you haven’t seen a SoftBank commercial yet… you have to watch this. Oh and Tommy Lee Jones also helps sell canned coffee.

Css animation and javascript make the phone ring intermittently and picking up the phone results in a friendly woof! I think my drawing is super kawaii (cute).
