Guess how long Hello Kitty has been around? Over thirty years. Yeah, I know. And to this day, I still have no idea just what the **** exactly it is. It’s a character, and massively popular one, but it wasn’t spawned out of a TV show or video game or comic book. It’s just a character by itself, and has become a fashion statement synonmous with Japanese middle school girls, and as you’ll see, has pervaded all aspects of life as we know it..
I decided to do an experiment. I thought of as many nouns as I could and typed them as “Hello Kitty (noun)” into Google Image search. I’m posting all the results I got until I became exhausted as I believe this could go on for a whole weekend.
So hit the jump to watch Hello Kitty destroy almost everything you hold dear with pink bows and a smile.
Bike Tires! (really?)
Pancakes! (Google ****ing Hello Kitty pancakes and see how many varieties you get)
annnd Girls in Underwear!
