Spend even just a day or two in Japan and most likely you will come across a FamilyMart. This convenience store franchise is one of the largest in Japan and, for the most part, can be found nationwide. Although they aren’t all that different from other convenience stores, they do manage to set themselves apart in a few ways. One of these ways, is through the use of a catchy little jingle that plays when you walk into any of their stores.
Not surprisingly, the iconic nature of the FamilyMart jingle has resulted in a large number of people creating remixes of this hard to forget melody. Today, we’ll be taking a look at five of the most interesting takes on the FamilyMart jingle. So, without further ado, let’s get started.
