This New, Creepy Japanese Product Feels Like It Should Be Illegal To Sell It
Somehow...someway, you've outdone yourself, Japan.
Despite thoroughly establishing a reputation for weird, needless products, Japan still manages to surprise. Its most recent product, the "Un-burera" is no exception.
Where to even start? Produced by Million Girls Project, these umbrellas for horndogs allow users (i.e. unabashed men with absolutely zero shame) to get a perfect upskirt glimpse of their quintessential anime schoolgirl, while keeping dry!
Allegedly, "Un-burera" is supposed to be a play on words - a combination of “underpants” and “umbrella." And that would make perfect sense...if it actually sounded like either one.
Ironically enough, the name sounds more like a non-English speaking Japanese native trying to say "umbrella," but that much is still up for speculation.
The company has made its mission statement unequivocally clear - to produce products that "promote the idea of 'Crazy Japan.'" Seems their executing that just fine.
“This umbrella will cause an intense sense of shame to the user,” and that, “The use of public roads will be at your own risk," the company says on their website.
And while that may be a partially accurate corporate stance to take, it seems extremely doubtful their target market possesses any notable level of shame for buying the product.
