Japanese Ad Says Wrist Cutting is Sexy
Who new wrist cutting could be so sexy? A Japanese commercial for what appears to be a box cutting tool uses a wrist cutting motif - complete with pleated plaid skirt-clad sexy kawaii AV Japanese school girls, of course. With copy like, "Let's go stylish with wrist-cutting. It's cute. When you cut, it doesn't hurt that much. The blood becomes tastier," the commercial fits squarely in the "this would never happen in America" category. But, thankfully, there are still people in this world with a gleefully twisted sense of absolutely politically incorrect humor. And we could all use a dose of that from time to time.
THIS IS NOT TRUE. THE AD DOES NOT EXIST IN REALITY; HERE IS THE TRUTH:
The fake ad is one of many satirical commercials in Japanese exploitation pic called "Tokyo Gore Police."
Enough already of this viral silliness that hurts real people who do have real problems with cutting themselves in many countries, not least of whom was the late Phoebe Prince who committed suicide in Massachusetts in early January 2010 after being cutting herself for several years and being bullied mercilessly by a posse of high school bullies at her school in South Hadley.
