Quentin Tarantino will appear in an upcoming Softbank commercial, the company announced this week. The Japanese telecommunications giant, whose past spots have included quirky advertisements starring American actors Brad Pitt and Dante Carter, released a clip of Tarantino rehearsing for the spot.

Tarantino, wearing a Japanese kimono, was shown playing the character of "Uncle Tara-chan" in the company's "White family" serial. One of his costars in the commercial, Aya Ueto, a Japanese pop star and actor, said Tarantino "was very energetic and did a lot of adlibbing."
