From ANN –
American actor Tommy Lee Jones (The Fugitive, Men in Black, No Country for Old Men) discovers cosplayers, moe, and maid cafes in Tokyo’s otaku shopping district of Akihabara. (The Suntory site’s videos require Microsoft Windows Media Player.) The commercial is the latest in a series designed to promote Suntory’s Boss brand of canned coffee. Since April of 2006, Jones has been playing “Alien Jones,” an extraterrestrial character who has taken on the human form to conduct an undercover survey of Earth.

Ray’s take: hahahahahahaahahha! He’s freaking stoic and the girl is like so animated. Just watch the ad and laugh. Boy, we need more hapless American actors star in these Japanese commercials. I’m sure he was like: “um, OK…You’re just weird…”
Here comes the men in black in Akiba.
“I didn’t kill my Japanese maid!”
“I don’t care!”
An one-armed man in Akiba sounds like a villain from an anime.
