[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
