New York Yankee Hideki Matsui is nicknamed Godzilla, but really, he is larger than life: Japan Airlines has put him on two of their planes, in an move to attract more Japanese domestic travelers. While it seems more logical for Matsui's visage to be on the planes that go from Japan to, say, New York, Gothamist does enjoy Japan Airlines' press relase on the matter:

The Japanese love puns and GO GO has several meanings here. For example, "go" in Japanese means number 5, and Matsui's Yankee shirt bears the number 55, which can be read as GO GO.

Gothamist loves that the Japanese love puns.
