Clownfish belong in the sea, Nemo, not in the sky.

Along with Titanic and Forrest Gump, Finding Nemo is one of those movies I just never got around to watching, and probably never will. At this point, everyone in my social circle has seen the Pixar classic (some of them multiple times), and it’s seeped into the pop culture landscape enough that I suspect I now know just enough about the movie’s story to keep it from really surprising or entertaining me.

Still, there are some pretty big gaps in my Nemo knowledge. I know that the plot involves Nemo getting separated from his dad, but I don’t know why or how. Heck, apparently I don’t even know where Nemo gets found. I’d been under the impression that the little guy got whisked off to Sydney or some other Australian city, but apparently he really ended up in Japan, where he was recently discovered by Japanese Twitter user @rakuruda.

“I felt like someone was watching me, so I looked up, and I found Nemo!”

@rakuruda, who lives in Okayama Prefecture, spotted the clownfish wedged between a sign and a lamppost, looking as chipper as ever despite the perilous perch he was stranded on. “This is no time to be smiling!” asserted one online commenter, while another said that instead of the title of the film the character stars in, this should more accurately be called a case of “Binding Nemo.”

Many wondered how Nemo ended up in such a place, since not only is there no body of water around, the sign is located quite a bit above the road. @rakuruda offered his theory that someone parked a car with a high roofline next to the pole and wedged the stuffed animal into the crack, or that someone with the height and physical prowess of a professional basketball player dunked Nemo into the opening. Either way, it looks like he’s going to be stuck there for a while, but considering the fate that some beloved children’s characters have met in Japan, things could be a lot worse, so he may as well be thankful that at least he’s probably got a nice view from up there.
