Tired eyes costing you matches? Go1 stars in entertaining Japanese eye drop commercial narrated by one of the five gods of fighting games

Sponsorships are kinda a funny thing in the fighting game community, as it's normally carried out as part of a larger eSports team though there are actual consumer brands out there supporting players as well.

Goichi "CO|Go1" Kishida is seen as one of the best Dragon Ball FighterZ players around as well as anime fighters in general, and while his primary sponsor for competing is Cyclops Gaming, Rohto Z is also in there landing the top player in his very own commercial in Japan... for eye drops.

Shown off on a recent Japanese Cyclops Gaming stream, Go1 is the center of attention intently playing an unseen game on his fight stick before he closes his eyes tightly while dizzy stars appear above the pros head.

He takes out his Rohto Z eye drops in their interesting-looking packaging and uses them to unlock his full potential to button mash at the speed of light as a hype announcer cheers him on.

That narrator is none other than Shinya "Nuki" Onuki known as one of the five Japanese gods of fighting games primarily for his dominance at Street Fighter 3 Third Strike. If you've watched any Japanese commentary for Street Fighter lately, there's a really good chance that his voice will sound familiar to you.

Though the ad is not at all in English, it's still easy enough to understand what's going on here suggesting that Rohto Z's drops can help fix eye strain from spending time focused on screens with serious intent. They also show off Dragon Ball Z branded drops at the end which also fits in with Go1 perfectly.
