Crazy Japan Ad Week returns with the CrAzIeSt...something ever!

I don't know what's being advertised. The YouTube poster guesses it's a real estate company. All I can say is...HUGE RACCOON BALLS!! Run away, Little Red Riding Hood, RUN AWAY! Previously in Crazy Japan Ad Week returns:
the CrAzIeSt potato chip spot ever! • And, the CrAzIeSt milk spot ever!
