Final Fantasy teams up with Louis Vuitton to make Lightning purse commercials

I have to say… this is about as natural of a team-up as this entry in Final Fantasy can get. Final Fantasy XIII’s Lightning’s thin frame, pretty face, and lack of any human emotion or expression makes her the perfect candidate to advertise some of the world’s most over-priced purses and clothing. She has always looked like she should attempt the runway, and now she gets her chance thanks to this new commercial from Visual Works in partnership with Louis Vuitton.

This is even weirder than that time Cloud Strife used a cellphone. I can’t say I didn’t see this coming, and I almost want to take this as a joke. There is a chance that Square Enix had some really tongue-in-cheek giggles when thinking up this idea, but knowing the history of the strange obsession behind the scenes with this character, I’m thinking that everyone was all-in with this decision.

Seriously, can it get any weirder? Well, yes! Here are the actual clothes that she is wearing on real humans.
