Back in April 2016, several AKB48 idols voiced characters in a series of McDonald’s animated commercials. Now, one year later, the fast food giant is running a brand new animated ad! The ad shows what happened to the employee and her manager a year after.
The commercial features AKB48’s Yui Yokoyama as Ikumi, the employee, as well as Rin Okabe as Sumire, the manager. The commercial features Sumire about to resign from her job as a manager, And she wants Ikumi to take her place. Aside from the animated ad, McDonald’s also released a behind-the-scenes video.
This is a follow-up to last year’s McDonald’s AKB48 commercial, which also featured other idols from the group. Studio Colorido, which previously animated last year’s commercials, also animated this latest one.
