(click billboard, via)
My biggest boyhood hero shows up on a Tokyo billboard for SoftBank telecommunications. GOD, I loved Ultraman. Yeah, I'm old—fuck you. Bonus: here's six wonderfully bizarre vintage Tokyo subway PSA posters.

Check out the link below for a few HQ pictures of the billboard plus a commercial. I love the billboard. For those who don't know, SoftBank is a Japanese telecommunications and media corporation. Not a bank :)

And since you love Ultraman so much, you would like this other link too. Ultraman stuck to the back door of a (Japanese)garbage truck.

This, though a little old, is pretty amazing.

Ultraman was bad ass. I watched him on Channel 50 in Detroit on the Saturday afternoon Creature Feature. Good times.
