Huh. And here we thought McAfee was the king of whackadoodle YouTube videos.

Just in case you were wondering, the US site has no corresponding product offering the Divine Power of 8 million Japanese (or American Indian, for that matter) deities, and the commercial dates to 2012. Norton, it turns out, has a long history of insanely great commericals in Japan.
