After watching this metal-themed commercial, all I want is a bowl of ramen

What’s better than a bowl of ramen noodles? Ramen that’s advertised using the power of METAL!

From Revolver:

Nissin Foods, the company behind Top Ramen, Cup Noodles, and other beloved sodium bombs, have unveiled an amazing new ad for their classic Chikin Ramen — and it’s metal as fuck. The spot finds the brand’s adorable mascot Hiyoko-chan participating in an arcane, ramen-inspired ritual that transforms him into the bird demon Caym. Drawing on the powers of dark magic and boiling water, he creates a new world, not to mention a tasty meal.

Japan is the closest you can get to Mars without leaving the planet. Seriously.
