In the culturally rich nation of Japan, advertising needs to speak in a manner that is relevant to the population.

This dated ad campaign for Norton Antivirus’ Blessed Data Backup USB Guardian Amulet features corporately-attired men and women worshipping the god of USB at a traditional shrine.

They do so to ward against ‘evil spirits’ that wipe out their computer data, speaking to the biggest fear of any modern day person who works in a corporate office.

Also featuring Japanese pop idol girl group, Dempagumi, who protect your data by shooting arrows at evil ninja ‘viruses’ that try to wreck your computer and data.
