Old Spice recently released this TV commercial. Okay, the mother in the commercial seems odd (maybe even creepy), but what many people have pointed out is that it shows an Asian guy with a Caucasian girl. That is so rare in the USA. I've only seen one other TV commercial ever where there was an Asian guy with a Caucasian girl. EVER! I know that the Caucasian girls who I've dated, always have family members who didn't care for me (one girl told me when her mother found out she was dating an Asian guy, her mother's reaction was, "Oh Great! Wonderful! Just what we need... a Chinese wedding!" (she was being sarcastically racist). The thing was, I hadn't even met her mother and the mother didn't even give me the benefit of the doubt that since I was born in the USA and grew up here, I just might want a Western style wedding.
Anyway, as an Asian guy, I always wonder why society accepts the Asian girl with the Caucasian guy much more than the Asian guy with the Caucasian girl relationship. FWIW, 36% of Asian girls in the USA marry outside their race and many, if not most Caucasian (and other ethnicities) girls prefer anything BUT Asian guys. Always puzzling to me...
Kind of funny, but there IS some truth (or else it wouldn't be funny). The last girl from Beijing whom I dated was yelling at me quite often (and she'd almost never pay for anything: meals, etc...). A very demanding woman. The last girl from Nanjing whom I dated was very fair; we'd take turns paying and we cooked together. I really liked her, but 7 months after she decided to stop dating me, she married a white guy.

It is South Korean group, After School 's first Japanese release. Amuro stated that she had taken notice of the K-pop scene for some time. For the project, Amuro's staff gave her a list of possible Korean collaborators. Due to her enjoying After School member Uee's performance in the Korean drama "You're Beautiful", she decided on the group. (from Wikipedia.org).
