HENNGE K.K.

HENNGE is a company committed to transforming itself and changing the world with technology in response to our changing times. In line with our company's concept of supporting both companies and people taking on the challenge of such change, we decided to feature Mai Shiraishi--who graduated from Nogizaka46 and is currently taking on the challenge of a new world herself--for our advertising.

■ The commercial's theme is "Get rid of passwords with single sign-on."
Mai Shiraishi plays the role of an office worker who is struggling due to forgotten passwords. The commercial uses a catchy parody song to humorously introduce the world of HENNGE One, which achieves password elimination and single login.
