When we were in Tokyo, we tried to get directions to a YMCA where Sue had a reservation. We couldn't find it and kept using our pathetic Japanese to try and get people to help us. They were very nice, but it turned out no one knew where it was. One woman tried to help us and told us to turn at "Seven Company."
We walked and walked and walked and eventually realized by "Seven Company" she meant "7-Eleven," also known as "Seven and iHoldings" in Japan. I felt like one of those teams on "The Amazing Race," where they're given some semi-vague, semi-obvious clue, and watching the show you feel so smug, like "DUH! How can you NOT figure that 'Seven Company' = "7-Eleven'?" But in real life, it's sometimes not that obvious.
Anyway, all this is prelude to a funky 7-Eleven commercial from 1970, set to a funky proto-disco beat, and this link to what appears to be a Japanese (or Chinese?) 7-Eleven ad hawking their ice cream.
