April 1st has been full of surprises for Hatsune Miku, most of which has been April Fools Day pranks (sorry, but Miku Expo wont be having a 2039 galaxy tour), but this one is real: LG Eletronics has launched their new LG G5 flagship phone today, along with a commercial featuring Jason Statham, a largely recognized action movie actor. The background music, however, unmistakably features samples of the popular Hatsune Miku cover of Ievan Polkka, composed by Otomania. The remix song is Sports Day by Busy Signal.
This rather unusual pairing will certainly go down in the history books as one of Hatsune Miku’s notable cameos in product promotions. What do you fans think of the cameo?
