Guilala: The Later Years


My friend Jules over at Cinematic Damnation posted this and I had to share it with fellow fans of goofy Japanese monster movies. It's been well-publicized recently that American movie stars have a habit of moonlighting in embarrassing Japanese commercials for a quick and easy buck, but who ever thought that long out-of-work Japanese rubber monsters would be doing the same over on our shores. Here, Guilala, the star of the wonderously silly 1967 debacle The X From Outer Space, can be seen plugging an American job search website.

Oh I disagree.

X is one of my favorite works of unintentional cinematic hilarity. It's like the PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE of kaiju films.

I think this commercial got made because they have made a new version of Guiala/X from Outer Space coming out:

I wonder if this insurance company has product placement in the new movie? Do we see their Tokyo HQ squashed? The 1960s Guiala was fun and I hope the new one is too.
