Japanese People Putting Objects In and Around Their Mouths

There has always been weird themes circling the advertising circuit in the Tokyo subway system. It's one of the charming elements of living in this great city- you never know what you're going to see next!  For several months, you'll see mostly robots. And then, for no logical reason, the Powers That Be will switch to teenagers in skimpy bikinis. Followed by anthropomorphic vegetables. Because, Japan, that's why.
Rule number one of living in Japan: YOU NEVER ASK WHY. It's better if you just nod and smile.

And so, boys and girls, I bring you the latest theme of the Japanese subway advertising- Japanese people putting things in and around their mouths. These images seem (mostly) totally innocent when seen independently, but as a group... well... I'll let you be the judge.

This actually isn't my picture, but this is an actual ad...

REALLY enjoying his low-calorie beverage!

This guy is everywhere, has hundred of pictures, and yet always seems to have his mouth open...

This one is just begging to be photo-shopped...

But... it's so BIG!!! How will it ever fit???

Ok, he's not Asian, but Leo doesn't like to be left out.

My God... it's magnificent!!!

If I make out with a vegetable, it's not gay, right?


Please be gentle...

Nope. Too easy.

Frapping your cappuccino...

Ok, so I have an... active imagination. But it's still rather entertaining. And it's the little things in life that keep you smiling :)

Have a great day!
