“ili is a voice translation device that translates your words instantly in a touch without connecting to the Internet. Dean, who is from the UK and doesn’t speak Japanese, uses ili to communicate with Japanese women whom he has never met before to ask for a kiss. We don’t need a common language. We can communicate with anyone in the world even if we don’t speak the same language. Say goodbye to all language barriers!” The above advert was branded as ‘sexual harassment’, but has been revealed as a stunt, after the CEO admitted the video was staged.The women in this video are all actresses; no one was forced to act against their will in any way.
