Colonel Sanders, Akihabara Style.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found the sometimes controversial statues of Colonel Sanders somewhat tasteless. In Japan, however they are still commonplace.
Still, Akihabara tends to be the great equaliser, where the hikikomori (the literally hidden substrata of disaffected Japanese youth that shun society) those who rarely leave their home can dress up as commandos, galyords, Anime War Lords or French maids and enjoy a nice day out in the sun.
Colonel Sanders got the Akiba treatment this weekend, in a sweet, Akihabara style publicity stunt.
I must say, he looks a extremely cute, for a 60 year old man with a bad temper.
