Capsule toys from vending machines are a big deal in Japan, often putting our less-inspired ones to shame. Case in point, these new miniature figures introduced by the Tama-Kyu company, that depict people who are intoxicated in public!
The series, named #YopparaiNau (Drunk Now), is made up of five different lushes, each in a different predicament and measuring about five centimeters (two inches) in height.
All the greatest hits are there:
…“Person Wearing a Pylon” …“Person Sleeping on the Side of the Road” …“Person Hugging a Telephone Pole” …“Person Hugging a Telephone Pole” …“Person who Needs a Waste Basket.”
The cost? 300 yen (approx. US $2.72) each.
