The Most Terrifying Fast Food Employee In Japan

The Most Terrifying Fast Food Employee in Japan

In Japan, fast food chain Lotteria had a special store manager last Friday for one terrifying day only: Sadako from The Ring.

At the Lotteria in Tokyo's Ikebukuro neighbourhood, Sadako worked the register by popping out, frightening customers and serving up a special shake created in her likeness. What better way to send a chill down your spine than this?

The frozen treat, which is "ramune" flavored, has a stringy chocolate topping that is supposed to be reminiscent of Sadako's hair. The shake, which is available for a limited time, is part of the promotion for the character's latest horror film, Sadako 3D 2, which opens in Japan on August 30.

But what happens seven days later after you order the Sadako shake? Dun dun dun.

Like the frozen desert, the movie also appears to be look very blue.

        No, I'm with Hyper here. The about page says "gaming and gaming culture". This is neither.

          @hyp3rstrike

          the door is over there, you both can feel free to not click the irrelevant links and exit to the wonderful world of who gives a fuck

        It's spelt Kotaku.

          Sure is, however the page is based off of the word otaku.

          It comes from Otaku and japanese word Ko which means little.

          Under such naming conventions this article is definitely in the right place.

          This was on a FAQ on the US site, which I can no longer locate for some reason.

            Under such naming conventions this article is definitely in the right place.This is not a Game Otaku article. This is not an Anime Otaku article. This is not a Manga Otaku article. This is not a Science Otaku article.
            This is not a Mecha Otaku article. This is not an Art Otaku article. This is not an Astronomy Otaku article.

            It is perhaps an Asian Film Otaku article, however, the point is that "Otaku" is a very broad term and if you want to use it as a justification for an article on the site, then Kotaku is doing a bad job at covering all corners of the otaku spectrum. Even if you took it at it's most liberal definition of "Geek", that is a very broad label as well and Kotaku does not cover quite a lot of the core geek topics (Especially science and technology). Even if you wanted to take the Western socially accepted definition of otaku which is someone into anime, manga and games, this is still outside of that definition.

            Also, you may be looking for this excerpt from the US About page:Thank you for reading Kotaku, a news and opinion site about games and things serious gamers care about. Or perhaps this extract from the Commenting and article content guidelines:Kotaku is a site for any and all gamers and even people who don't play games but are curious about them.

            I'll get off the soapbox now. /rant As an aside, I'm not against this kind of content, Japanese culture and pop culture is an interest of mine, it just irks me when people use the "Otaku Defense" as a justification for it.

              I thought about writing a big ass response, but decided against. I'm just going to let you claim this victory.

      CONGRATULATIONS!! You are the 1000th registered Kotaku user to make this comment!!

      Here's you reward....

    They're still making The Ring movies? The originals were some classics. Just don't mention the hollywood remakes.

    Their business must be terrible if they expect their customers to wait seven days for their food to arrive. :P

    In seven days... you get brain freeze
