So yesterday I did my daily ritual of checking to see if there was anything new on my fav blogs. Yesterday I skimmed over toxel.com, and saw the image to the right. It is an advertisement for canned coffee. This little space is supposed to simulate the feeling of being a ski jumper which is somehow related to the tag line of this canned coffee. I was sort of confused as to why someone would go into that claustrophobic space just so that they could feel like a ski jumper. I thought nothing of it until I went back to toxel.com this morning and read the title of the blog (Ski Jump Toilets in Japan promote Canned Coffee). This little space is actually a public bathroom. WOW! I think it’d be an awesome experience, but I’m not sure I’d want to buy the canned coffee afterward. I don’t think “canned” coffee goes with sitting on the “can” if you get my drift.
