A pair of Japanese kids learn what Destiny obsession really looks like in a new live-action ad that cosplayers will love.

The West hasn’t seen any live-action ads for Destiny’s new expansion The Taken King. This Japanese ad, on the other hand depicts a pair of young people sitting in a laundromat, waiting for a friend of theirs to arrive and explain why they’re waiting in front of a line of washing machines and dryers.

Their friend shows up bearing copies of the Legendary Edition of The Taken King, and a costume that Destiny cosplayers would kill for.
