Banner of the year? Taken from the banner entry description: "TOTO is the No.1 toilet manufacturer in Japan. They manufacture bidet-style toilets which are popular in Japan. These toilets wash your anus with water turning very clean and comfortable."

Yep, banner of the year! You gotta love those Japanese and their quirky sense of humour.

And, a comment from me without the puns - and there were many I could have written :-)

Sweet Jesus, that really is brilliant. And the copy... I'm not sure as to the disposition of my bottom right now, but I'd bet my left cheek it's not cheerful.

Brought a smile to my face when I realized that's not pee trying to draw rainbows in the snow. This is great. Love it. Good sound, simple animation, took no time to load at all. So effective.

Indeed. No one murders English like the Japanese.

And this is banner of the year because... what? It shows wee-wees and bottoms? Perfectly nice. Perfectly well executed. Banner of the Year my rainbow arse.

It's really hard to advertise a toilet manufacturer, and they pulled it off. Cute banner.

Very cheeky, I like.

I like it. The straight way of showing it would be to have real bums being washed. Think this gets the product benefit across quite clearly.
