Innovate marketing? Sunny Excellent 1400 Featuring Alan Merrill, a rock star in Japan (and later in England he wrote the song "I love rock and roll"). Photographed 3 March 1971, the Sunny television commercial was filmed at Toho studios.



Alan Merrill was an American vocalist, guitarist and songwriter. The son of an american jazz vocalist, Alan was successful in the popular music arena. In the early 1970s, he was one of the few resident foreigners to achieve pop star status in Japan. He was the writer of, and lead singer on, the first released version of the song "I Love Rock 'n' Roll", which was recorded by his band the Arrows in 1975. The song became a breakthrough hit for Joan Jett in 1982.
