Asahi's Wonda Coffee just got a new commercial set in the world of Attack on Titan, the smash hit anime/manga series. The stylised commercial also features Japanese rock star Yoshiki, drummer and frontman for X Japan. 

Watch it below:

The short ad has Yoshiki turn into an enormous titan - and then beat on a massive drum kit, of course. All this wears him out and he falls to the ground, after which the ad cuts to Yoshiki sipping from a can of coffee. The drum sounds heard in this video were recorded live by Yoshiki, according to a news release. 

Yoshiki has collaborated with Beatles producer George Martin, Queen’s Roger Taylor, St. Vincent and Sarah Brightman in the past. He’s also worked with Bono, will.i.am and Jennifer Hudson on the song #Sing4life, and is currently composing music for xXx 4. Yes - they’re still making new xXx movies.
