Over here, the BT Tower was transformed into a giant lightsabre and hordes of stormtroopers littered the streets of London. But Tokyo commuters have been blessed with these glowing handrails instead, JapanTrends reports.

Now every passenger can feel like a Jedi as they scoot off to work. The Force is strong with this salaryman.

While entire trains are often commandeered in advertising campaigns over there, this is apparently the first time hand rails have been used.
