アメリカンホーム.com

I just saw it on a TV commercial. This time, it is an insurance company.

Re: アメリカンホーム.com

I came across this:



The only problem is that the owner of the Romaji domain and the owner of the IDN advertised are 2 different companies!

Does anyone have any other examples of IDN's being used by large corporations?

The only examples I know of so far are Ikea and the TV ad by Nissan for one of their cars.

BTW. trying to post a picture to this forum is a PITA. Any way to make the manage attachments part to work? It currently only accepts really tiny pictures. 11k or less.

Re: アメリカンホーム.com

With some digging I managed to find 3 commercials using this domain in its message.

They can be found here:
