Kaiju monsters go high-fashion for 'ultra' shopping center debut

The ultimate superheroine Mother of Ultra is the perfect supermodel for an ad campaign to celebrate the "ultra renewal" of 97 stores in the Amu Plaza Hakata shopping center in Japan.

Mother of Ultra, as well as kaiju monsters Alien Baltan, Dada, and Pigumon strut their stuff on the catwalk. In other videos, Mother of Ultra invades the city of Fukuoka itself, modeling the latest fashions most likely found in the newly updated shopping center.

While this is only an ad campaign, it would make an amazing monster movie with some of the most iconic "Ultraman" characters turning fashion victims into ultra fashionistas.

Here's hoping other kaiju characters follow in their fashionable footsteps. If anyone can rock a Spencer Hart suit, it'd be Godzilla.
