She has got to be the most famous feline coming out of Japan. No I am not talking about this chick,
I am talking about the cat that has a loyal following around the world.
Her fans range from elementary school girls to celebrities like crazy
ass Mimi and Brit Brit. Who’s she? Well, she’s none other than the beloved Hello Kitty.
Born in 1974, Hello Kitty is undeniably the mascot queen of cute. She is better known than any Asian celebs including Godzilla .
Her trademarked face (without a mouth that is) has been featured on
products ranging from pencil cases to digital cameras. There are even a
couple of commercial planes out there with her face on them! Two years ago they came up with Hello Kitty dressed as Paris Hilton
and it was selling like hot cakes. Her non-Japanese fans would even
travel to Japan to buy the Hello Kitty souvenirs that aren’t available
back home. Hello Kitty merchandise rake in about USD870 Million a year
in sales. I believe crazy is the right word here.
Apparently Hello Kitty has both success and love. She has a boyfriend named Daniel,
who really is Hello Kitty dressed in a suit minus the red ribbon. Ms
Kitty, there is really no fun in dating yourself. I suggest you ditch
him and hook up with Doraemon. You need a man with more meat on his body.
Personally I don’t get the fascination with this cat. I kept saying
hello to her and bitch would never say hello back. That’s not very
Japanese, if you ask me. Maybe not having a mouth is the reason why.
Hello Kitty should hire a publicist to address this problem
