Knowing Your Market

Like most of Tokyo’s workforce, Rico takes the train to work. He gets on the 7:00 train. He sees there are no seats available. He decided to stand in front of the person he thought would be getting off next.

In front of him, there was this poster containing this sentence that inspired him for the rest of the day.

「だけど、がんばり過ぎちゃって余計に忙しくなってませんか」

Clever advertising.
