I took a video.  The first two-minute video includes the first to the fifth Glico signboard, old items, TV commercials, and small free gifts put on the top of boxes.

The Pinch Hitter Of  The signboard

The picture of Ayase Haruka, a popular actress, was displayed from Aug.18 to Oct.22 when the formal sighboard was closed.

The 6th Marathon Runner Race Around the Globe !!

Ayase Haruka showed up in front of Glico signboard to push the opening button.  Then white curtain uncovered and the 6th renewal signboard came into view. 
The big difference between the 5th and 6th signboards is that the device changed from neon bulb  to LED.  Video is broadcasted for 2 minutes every 15 minutes by computer control. The marathon runner now race around the globe !!

Please come to see the 6th Glico renewal sognboard.  Dotombori is one of the busiest streets in Osaka.

I'm sure you can enjoy seeing many other flashy signboards when you come to Dotombori.
