When your loved ones are down, you'll do anything to cheer them up and make them laugh. For 50-year-old Hu Han-yan, getting his father's spirits up meant one thing: a Hello Kitty haircut.
According to Taiwan's TTV News, the man's 84-year-old father was feeling ill before the spring festival. Hu, a successful businessman with 14 kids, wanted to bring a smile to his dad's face. He picked Hello Kitty because his kids like character — and because it's youthful.
"A 50-year-old man making his father cracking up like that, it's great," said the father.
The haircut cost $TWD1000 or $34 and took two hours. Strangers giving thumbs-up on the street? Priceless.
Hello Kitty is popular throughout Asia. A fleet of Hello Kitty planes recently launched in Taiwan.
