Man in Black -- in Akihibara

Anyone who's seen LOST IN TRANSLATION can understand how Tommy Lee Jones ended up in this Japanese Suntory "Boss" Coffee commercial. According to Anime News Network, this is the latest in a series starring Jones as a character named "Alien Jones." Here, "Alien" ends up in Akhibara, encounters cosplayers, plays rock-paper-scissors with a waitress at a maid cafe, and ends up being fork-fed om-rice. The voice-over -- supposedly Jones's narration -- is definitely lacking his Texas twang.
