(via The AP) Hello Kitty is named Japan tourism ambassador
TOKYO (AP) — Hello Kitty — Japan’s ubiquitous ambassador of cute — has built up an impressive resume over the years. Global marketing phenom. Fashion diva. Pop culture icon. Now the moonfaced feline can add “government envoy” to the list. The tourism ministry on Monday named Hello Kitty as its choice to represent the country in China and Hong Kong, two places where she is wildly popular among kids and young women.
Ok whatever. But then let us go to the last two paragraphs and study them:
A multi-million-dollar musical featuring Hello Kitty opened earlier this year in Beijing and is in the midst of a national tour. “Hello Kitty’s Dream Light Fantasy” is then scheduled to travel to Malaysia, Singapore and the U.S. over its three-year run.
According to her official profile from Sanrio, Hello Kitty lives with her family in London. It does not mention how often she visits Japan.
Hello Kitty doesn’t even live in Japan! How fucked up is that? I say it is very fucked up.
But fuck all that! FUCK IT!
Who’s going with me? Raise your hand. I am so there! She has no mouth! I wanna see how she sings! Maybe Badtz Maru has a solo!
