Kaguya Hime

Just saw this during a CM break just now which reminded me to post it.
Kaguya Hime is a 10th century Japanese Folk tale about a girl who was discovered inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant - you may have seen references to the story in some anime.

Sho Shu Riki is a brand of deodorizer and usually have funny ads like this one.

Your Japanese word for today is "Kusai" (臭い) meaning "to smell bad" If you come across a smelly odour, you can say "Kusai" in the same tone as kaguya hime in the ad.
