■CM story (30 seconds)
A “National Sales Cost Reduction Review Meeting” is being held between the general affairs department, which manages sales vehicles, and the sales department, including Issei Takahashi. Issei Takahashi is surprised when the general affairs manager proposes “reducing the number of commercial vehicles” as one of the cost-cutting measures. The general affairs manager increases maintenance costs for business vehicles, such as parking fees, insurance premiums, taxes, and inspection and maintenance costs, one after another, and explains the reason for this by saying, “maintenance costs are high.” “But…” Just as Issei Takahashi was looking confused, his junior handed him a note. Issei Takahashi, who was worried, read out the memo he was given by his junior, saying, “With Times car sharing, you can use it as a business car all over the country, and the maintenance cost is 0 yen.” “Is that so?” I asked my junior in a whisper. The general affairs manager also responds to the unexpected proposal from the sales department by asking, “Is that what you’re doing now?” There, Issei Takahashi took advantage of his junior who confidently replied, “Yes!” and made a weak fist pump with a somewhat unreliable expression on his face.
In the end, Issei Takahashi and his juniors were watching behind the general affairs manager as he clicked the application button for the Times Car on his computer. When he saw that the application was completed, he applauded and was drawn in by the click, and was happy, saying, “Pochipochipochipochchi…”, but then he realized that he had made a mistake and that he was being attracted to the general affairs manager and his juniors, and said, “Crackling, crackling. Issei Takahashi’s comical way of trying to contain the awkward atmosphere is also worth watching.
