kkleiner writes: "She was the newest member of the very popular all-girl Japanese idol group AKB 48.

This past Sunday, Ezaki Glico, the candy company which aired the commercial, confirmed what many of AKB 48’s fans had come to suspect: Aimi Eguchi wasn’t real. The new group member, it turns out, was a computer-generated composite of the real band members."
