WTF – Hello Kitty Punishment Barrel

December 20, 2014

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:

  1. I am so happy!!! My pirate version of this just arrived in the mail. I had seen them on my favorite show, Running Man, and tried to locate them online, with no success. Thanks to this blog post, I found a source! I will bring it with me to the Meet and Greet in Los Angeles. You never know….

  2. on the picture of the punishments it says “dog leg dance” instead of “crab dance” which is what the video of crayon pop is lol

  3. So what you are saying is, spelling your name with your butt is a normal thing to do? Oo
    I somehow feel like that’s much easier to do in Korean….

  6. Hm…For the “choose your penalty” sword, why do I feel like it should be the winner(s) who get to pick the loser’s punishment?

  9. I’m always amused by how unfazed whoever may be working in the front room is by the shenanigans going on with Simon and Martina.

      • HI Webmistress Rose! Sorry to be OT, but may you check the latest Speaker’s Corner page please? The comment/account login doesn’t seem to be working. Somehow it’s only on that one page. Thanks! Keep up the great work!

  10. Questions- Since Martina got the dance wrong. Shouldn’t another video be made with the right dance this time? LOL! =P

  12. *puts on art school beret* But don’t you see!? Hello Kitty has become part of the zeitgeist! Hello Kitty’s pop-culture status and seeming ubiquitousness IS totally post-modern! *takes off beret*

    But seriously – there was actually a Hello Kitty event at the state art gallery near where I live, but I couldn’t make it down :( This video filled the Hello Kitty shaped hole in my heart. Thank you!

  13. Haha that was a fun video ^.^
    Though to be honest, i don’t think I’ll ever get past this: “Hello Kitty is an aesthetic. It’s a movement. Like Postmodernism.” that made me laugh way more than it should have :D
    (I just did an Art history subject, and I’ve also had classes on the literature side of it)
