Of course Martina would get a Hello Kitty item, wouldn’t she? I’m starting to feel like we’ve done so much Hello Kitty stuff that we need to make our own section of the site just for it. Though, I will admit: now that it’s cold here in Korea, everyone in the studio is fighting for those warming slippers.
Anyhow, this game here was a lot better than I expected it to me. I thought that there’d be a spot in the barrel that triggers it every time, so as soon as you knew that you’d stay away from it, but that wasn’t the case. It randomized! That’s awesome! And the different punishments are a great idea. Sure, it has little to nothing to do with Hello Kitty, but it’s a fun game nonetheless.
That got me thinking: it seems like there’s tons of stuff in the world that’s branded as Hello Kitty that has little to nothing to do with Hello Kitty. Like Soap, or foot warmers, or airplanes. Hello Kitty isn’t a theme, or a set of items. Hello Kitty is an aesthetic. It’s a movement. Like Postmodernism. And it’s a freaking pink cat that’s supposedly not even a cat. That’s so…intense.
Otherwise, if you’d like to pick up this game and get your friends crab dancing, you can pick it up on Gmarket and let the good times roll! Here’s a picture with all of the stabbies, along with a translation of what the punishments are supposed to be, just in case you’re not comfortable enough with Korean:
Also, Martina’s crab dance was way off. It’s a reference to an old Kpop song, supposedly, that was way before our time. Soo Zee knows it, and though we can’t get a video of her doing it, here’s a video of how it’s supposed to go, a la Crayon Pop:
