Hellllooo everyone!

Martina bought this thing right here. Isn’t it obvious? She buys all of the Hello Kitty stuff we have: Hello Kitty foot warmers, and now Hello Kitty hand soap magnets. Funny thing, though, which sounds ridiculous at first, but all of the stuff that we’ve got for the studio that’s Hello Kitty related we actually use quite a lot. That foot warmer we did a video on we fought over all winter. And now, this soap holder, we’re actually gonna really like and use a lot.

This thing is actually quite brilliant. Is this common where you’re from? I don’t remember seeing this in Canada. I hate when you pick up a bar of soap that’s been sitting in a soap dish, and the top is dry but the bottom feels like wet napkins, all soggy and stuff. It’s fine, because you’re about to wash it off your hands anyways, but I’ve just never liked it. Here, though, the soap dries equally all over. Hang dries. It’s so smart!

I’d like it a lot more if it wasn’t Hello Kitty, though. You know, I’m starting to think that this is Martina’s subtle way of trying to indoctrinate me into the Hello Kitty world. She’ll buy extremely useful stuff with Hello Kitty on it, so I can have positive Hello Kitty associations. I bet you next she’ll get, like, a Hello Kitty universal remote. Then, once I’ve stopped disliking Hello Kitty, because it’s so useful, BAM! Out she’ll come with the stickers and straws and socks and random crap and fill our house with it. I’m side-eyeing you, Martina…

Also, she’s the one who’s editing this video, so I’m sure she’s gonna tone down the naughtiness of our raw footage. I’m writing this now as she’s editing the video. Point is, for those of you who have been to Korea and know what public bathroom stick soap we’re talking about, you’ll know the connotations that go with the soap. Just saying!

Yeah! So that’s it for this week’s ultra useful and super fun WTF. We’re publishing this from our hotel in Beijing, and we’re just about to go to the airport. We’ll be back in Korea in a few hours. Yay to no more slow VPNs, and yay to being able to chat with you guise again in the comments. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t click on this pretty button below, though. Just saying :D

  1. I love that the last word of the video is nipple

  2. We had that at home when I was a child. Here it is pretty normal to have these things (in Germany)

  3. I love al the wtfs so much! There are so manny weird, funny an cute stuff! Sorry for my bad writing bytheway, I am Dutch and cant speak English very well… ;-)

  4. That idea is genius… how has no one ever thought of that before.

  7. I am currently desperately trying to find a new flat in Norway (going back in two weeks, so sad T^T). If I get this soap dispenser, who wouldn’t want me as their roommate? Right?

  8. I want one! The Hello Kitty aspect of it is so cute and makes washing ones hands fun. Why can’t America have cute things like this for our soap?

  9. That bar of soap rammed on a metal rod–haha! First time to see something like it. I work for a Korean company here in the Philippines and our rest rooms have bars of soap instead of the usual liquid ones, but the soap is on a soap dish, thank goodness.

  10. If it had been a Sailor Moon one, there would be no filming done that day. XD Martina wouldn’t be able to handle it.

  11. If I had one of these I might consider using a bar of soap instead of liquid. So Awesome! :D

  12. I think that this Hello Kitty soap holder is ingenius, I mean why would you want soap that looks all soggy and dirty when its on the sink top when you can have it clean and at your hands touch, No more worrying about who touched the soap. ♥♥♥♥♥

  13. I seriously need me one of these. ASAP D:

  14. Hello Kitty makes everything better :P I’m using my Hello Kitty headphones right now!

  15. This is really awesome. I want one. Do you guys know if they have other cool models apart from Hello Kitty ?

  16. omg. speaking of Hello Kitty. I bought a Hello Kitty Lunch box yesterday!

  17. I really want one of these! if i send you guys like $10 can you get me one???

  18. I remember those soaps on a stick… so many awkward moments…

  19. The new comment system is good! I never really wanted to use Disqus so this is my first comment here. :D

  20. That would go nice in my bathroom!

  21. Hi EYK I just want to say to Simon that HELLO KITTY is slowly taking over the entire world, at Target they have Hello Kitty plates & bowls & cups, forks & spoons, microwave, toaster, lamps, sewing machine, pancake maker, air popcorn popper, handmixer, led tv with a cute black tv with a little hello kitty popping out the top or a solid hot pink tv with hello kitty logo, hair straightener, sandwich press, rice cooker, blow dryer, bags, make up, slow cooker, karaoke machine, quesadilla maker, humidifier, indoor grill, duct tape, hand vacuum, cake pans, and of course clothing, accessories, stationery, and loads of home decor like blankets, curtains, and rugs. My point is to Simon “STOP RESISTING” it will make the take over much less painful. lol.

    I am like Martina if I see something awesome 9/10 times I will always pick the hello kitty version over the normal boring version.

  22. *totally unrelated to the video *
    Yeah ! the new commenting system is way better (for now). Love it ! But you can’t give a thumb up anymore, can you ?

  23. *totally unrelated to the video *
    Yeah ! the new commenting system is way better (for now). Love it !

  24. I really like the new commenting system! I hadn’t been able to comment on the site in weeks because Disqus was not loading/working for me. And that made me sad. Now I can be happy again!

    Hello Kitty obviously makes everything better.

  25. Yaaa. It’s super clever, no more slimy soap. And it’s Hello Kitty. Everything related to Hello Kitty is awesome, and cats are awesome. And Martina’s make up is gorgeous.. Please, please, please make tutorial!

    And finally no disqus it was so slopy, and sometimes didn’t work. EYK FTW!

  26. I need this for my shower SO BAD.

  27. cool, no more disqus. i always hated the slow loading time…

  28. As naughty (nasttyy~?) as those soap on a stick-bars are, I think they’re really handy! BUT THIS MAGNET THING IS WAY COOLER!! What kind of little grocery store? In Hongdae? I will find it and buy one for myself! I wonder if there’s a ducky one…. (i have a rubber ducky themed bathroom ^^)

  29. I want it~~~ and from Hello Kitty!! *^pouts*

  30. The soap thing actually seems like a great idea! :)

  31. I found this on amazon. Now I’m creating a hello kitty bathroom wish list for after I move in July :)

  32. This is really cool guys. poor simon thought, he’ll go to sleep one day after finally accepting hello kitty and it’ll be everywhere XD

    btw I love the new comments! I havent been able to see them the last week or two and these just look like they fit much better :D

  33. woaaaa… that’s truly WTF… and i love this new comment things~

  34. Ooooh I love this new comment style~

  35. I know this comment system was just implemented so I assume there will be adjustments but umm just to note anyway, the oldest comments show up at the top, the border around comments and spacing between them is really large, usernames are in all caps, and there’s no timestamps.

  36. Yay! I can see comments again!
