[English] Firstlook Winter CF Clip #5 ~ Abnormal Summit Parody

Credit: CJ O Shopping


Opening Caption: Having 18 functions in a 300,000 Man Won (~$300) Goose Down is nonsense

Common sense vs. Nonsense

 

Tyler from the USA: I’m trying to find a good goose down jacket but…

Alberto from Italy: The first thing that you have to confirm is the goose down’s grade

Everyone: Grade?!!

Caption: Goose (down) also has grades?

Alberto: Compare a goose who has been able to withstand -1 degrees Celsius vs. a goose who withstood a Siberian winter at -40 degrees Celsius.  Which goose’s feathers would be better?

Everyone: The Siberian one

Caption: Isn’t it obvious? -40 degrees Celsius.

Sam from Ghana: You must also consider your health when buying goose down.

Caption with the thumbs up on both sides of him: Health comes first

White caption in front of Tyler and Albert: Listening mode

Caption by Tyler’s head: Student #1, Tyler

Caption by Alberto’s head: Student #2, Alberto

Sam: It should have antistatic and antibacterial properties.

Tyler: Personally, I’m looking for a goose down that is affordable and stylish.

Caption: Indeed, will greedy Tyler be able to purchase such a goose down?

Alberto:  But, there is such a thing.

Caption: Really?

Caption in yellow against black background: Oh, God!

Alberto: The price is 30 Man Won (~$300 US dollars). Plus there’s 18 different functions.

Sam: No way!

Followed by a long Star Wars-like list of 18 different functions provided by Firstlook

Alberto: It’s the Firstlook Goose Down that Lee Seung Gi wears

All 3 men: Lee Seung Gi!

Yellow and white caption after Seung Gi in blue jacket: Again, Lee Seung Gi’s Firstlook

Sam: Lee Seung Gi, 30 Man Won? Awesome!

[English] Firstlook Outdoor CF Video ~ Abnormal Summit Parody ㅋㅋ

Credit: O Shopping CJ

This new CF clip for Firstlook Outdoor using foreigners speaking Korean is hilarious and definitely an attention getter. Kudos to the Firstlook CF team for coming up with such an innovative idea. 🙂

English translation:

Opening caption: A stylish goose down is expensive. Is it common sense vs. Is it nonsense

Sam from Ghana: When I first arrived in Korea from Ghana, it was winter and I almost froze to death.  I was standing in the airport and suddenly…(caption as he makes robotic frozen movements is similar to “Brrr” in English)

Everyone laughs as the caption says “It’s funny”

Sam: Hello…(Caption says: It was too cold)

Julian from Belgium: Sam, Sam, Sam, Sam, but you earned a lot of money~

Julian: This winter, you can treat yourself to a goose down~

Sam: In Korea, fashionable outdoor wear is so expensive that I can’t afford it

Alberto from Italy: If you want to buy a decent one, it costs over $1,000 (US dollars).

Sam freaks out: $1,000?!! (Caption says: No way…)

Tyler from the USA:  Couldn’t we find a reasonably priced goose down for Sam?

Julian: Nah~ There’s nothing like that…

Sam: Such an item doesn’t exist…There isn’t.

Alberto: Now that I think about it, there is one.

Julian: Almost dies of laughter.

Sam: Where is such a thing? Alberto, please tell me up front.

Alberto: Search the Internet. If you search for “Lee Seung Gi Padding (Jacket), it’ll pop up.

Everyone: Lee Seung Gi Padding

Sam: Who is Lee Seung Gi? (Caption in huge letters says: He is too confident!)

Alberto: He’s very stylish/cool

Sam: You said he’s very stylish/cool? Who is Lee Seung Gi? (Caption beneath him says “Sam, why are you being like this?”)

Alberto: How can you not know..Lee Seung Gi? (Caption says “speechless”) Are you really living in Korea?

Caption in bold as the reactions of the other 3 members are shown: “Sam, what are we going to do about you?”

Julian: Lee Seung Gi Padding..Oh! It’s here!!

Alberto: I’m not lying

Julian: Sam, Sam, Sam, look at this!

Tyler: So it is. (You’re right)

Sam: Oh! It’s cool! (Caption says “This is very beautiful”) This is really beautiful!

Julian: It’s really cool/stylish.

Alberto: Firstlook. It’s Firstlook Goose Down.

Sam: Hey! This is pretty decent! I’m going immediately!

Julian: Let’s go together, Sam! (Caption says “Why are you going alone? Let’s go together!”)

Tyler: I’ll go too~

Caption in yellow on black background: Expensive outdoor wear is senseless

In unison: Fi-rs-t-lo-ok

Male voice and Ending caption: The first in sensible outdoor wear

[English] Lee Seung Gi Gifts the YAAS Staff After Eye Injury

Seung Gi has such a warm and generous heart. As a thank you gift to 130 staff members on the YAAS team, he gifted them with Firstlook Outdoor and shirts made out of Coolmax fabric to beat the heat during filming.  According to a statement made by Hook Entertainment on the 3rd, Lee Seung Gi gifted 130 members on the YAAS production team and staff with Firstlook Outdoor as ‘Staffwear’. This took place on July 1st at the ‘You’re Surrounded’ filming location in Tanhyeon (Ilsan). He was really thankful to the YAAS team for wishing him a speedy recovery following his eye injury and for readily postponing filming because of it.

The production crew who received the gifts were very happy. Lee Seung Gi gave us “Exactly the clothes we need”.  After presenting the gifts on set, Lee Seung Gi said, “I’m thankful to the staff who made it comfortable for me to act. They are always enduring hardships behind the scenes. I just wanted to express my heart in this small way. It would be great if the staff would be able to fight off the heat a bit and film in cooler conditions…since they stand all day underneath the hot sun and work.”
