I have been struggling with some way to tie this video into industrial design, modelmaking/propmaking, or creative pursuits in general, just so I'd have an excuse to post it. But you know what, it's a Friday and we Americans are on the verge of a holiday, so I'm going to see if I can sneak this one in while my bosses are hopefully loading their cars up with fishing gear. This is from a TV variety show in Japan, where a non-litigious society combined with focused creativity has turned pranking into an art form.
Probably staged, but does it matter? And how awesome is that costume, human legs aside?
