DAY 17 - Segata Sanshiro for Sega Saturn (Japanese)

I almost forgot this one, how very bad of me.  While the Sega Saturn had limited success in the USA and Europe, it was tremendously popular in Japan with superb arcade conversions and a ton of RPG's and dating sims.  Segata Sanshiro was created as the mascot and spokesman for the console in Japan, a karate master who spent his life training to be the greatest Sega Saturn player in the world.  Consider him a fictional badass version of Takahashi Meijin.  In this commercial Segata Sanshiro delivers a Christmas treat to a group of children waiting for Santa-san.  "HAAAANRR!"
