Inappropriate TV ad?

Saw this linked on another forum. It's an ad for a mobile phone
and plan in Japan from Docomo. The ad is targetted at junior high school kids
and it does seem a little inappropriate. Then again maybe it's normal
for girls to send love messages to each other as friendships among
younger girls can be quite intense and still be platonic.

30 second clip:

Do you understand the spoken japanese?

Little girls can be like that, I hear, though I can't say that when I was growing up in my surroundings that affection extended much beyond a hug.

Didn't make sense for me except nice phone though
Glad you liked that phone. Japaneses domestic market phones are gorgeous
but sadly 99% of them are carrier and multimedia locked. Hopefully
as Sharp starts making Japanese models available in Taiwan and HK,
we'll end up seeing more move Westwards. (I really dig my Sharp :) ).

Off topic here sorry Peter, why do you post in half sentences? As mentioned before it makes for a hard read, is it the browser you use?

Yeah. On my 22" it gets quite distracting. Maybe its like what's his face that always writes his posts in blue.

Same here, I just type, the software takes care of the spacing, was just wondering if it’s intentional or a browser issue.

Force of habit. :)

Why should it be hard to read? I'm currently reading on a 14.5" laptop
at 1400 by 1050 pixels and the visibility is good. Its the same when I
read this at 1280 by 1200 (19) or 2560 by 1600 (30 inch).

If anything LONGER lines of text are more difficult to read, across 30 inches!!!
