Tommy Lee Jones CM #7

With the karaoke cm (#6), the Tommy Lee Jones series really started to hit its stride. This next one, with TLJ working as a “host” in a male host club, was the first (but not the last) to delve into Japanese subcultures.

The host club phenomenon is the male equivalent of the “hostess bar,” and in fact the clientele are often hostesses who enjoy the role reversal of handsome men making women feel good, rather than the other way around. The gal sitting with Jones is probably a hostess who got off work and came to the club to be served by a man for a change. Host clubs have a fiercely competitive ranking system in which “Number 1” enjoys his status as the most popular host in the club, as long as the status endures.
