Genki Sushi: the gills are alive…!

…Alas, not with the sound of music, but with the sound of human heartbeats.

For those of you that find sushi a difficult concept to stomach in the first place, your feelings will hardly be quelled by this bizarre advert for Genki Sushi that sees your salmon sashimi roll morphing into real live humans.

Obviously, I don’t understand Cantonese, so perhaps the narration provides some light bulb moment as to why we would want to eat sushi that shape-shifts into bemused looking male models.

This ad seems to be on constant rotation on the buses, proving that it isn’t just the still-life posters on public transport out here that have the potential to freak you out (to recap so far we’ve had: hands coming out of eyes, prawns in pizza crusts, children dressed as sperm and a serial killer lurking in your mineral water).

It certainly brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘man-eater’!

Water Kills

Continuing my series of posters that freak me out on the MTR (so far we’ve had hands emerging from eye sockets, prawns stuffed in pizza crusts and kids dressed as sperm purporting to teach us nutritional values), here’s torture-porn specialist Jigsaw suspended in some modestly-named COOL water.

Now I know there’s a promotion for free tickets going on, but do we really think the best way to market healthy refreshing distilled water is to have a serial killer’s head floating around in it? Bring back the children dressed as sperm! All is forgiven!
