To celebrate 300M volumes sold, the publisher of One Piece took out full-page newspaper ads in the New York Times with a giant colored Luffy illustration. In Japan, local newspapers from every prefecture also has its own special full-page ad.
That's a really good looking ad.
Luffy looks freaking epic!
To me One piece is as ever present as the Simpson's. It kinda nice to the series get some public recognition over here.
