North Korean broadcast keeps it creepy with doll-like kids playing giant guitars 【Video】

Okay, so technically the guitars are regular-sized and it’s the kids who are the small ones, but there’s something strangely creepy about this whole video, from the kids’ synchronised smiles and nods to the boys’ weird hairstyles and the fact that some of them look more like little old men than children.

Join us after the jump for the full video.

Living Wallet: The high-tech/creepy solution to your money spending problems

We understand it’s hard to save money. With so many cool Gundam theme cakes and Sailor Moon accessories around, who wouldn’t be trying to empty their coin purses and pocketbooks to exchange their hard earned cash for awesome novelty goods. Sometimes, our spending gets a little out of control and we have to save a little, employing various tactics to try and see an increase in the bank account.

But what if your wallet started inching away, undulating like some sort of deranged caterpillar in hopes you forgo your next splurge. And what if you ignored the weirdness of the movement, picked up said wallet, and it started screaming at you? No, we’re not making this up. One company in Japan hopes to curb your spending with a “living wallet.”

Creepiest mall ever? Visiting Shiga Prefecture’s (almost) empty Pieri Moriyama

While you may not think of malls when Japan comes up, there certainly are a lot of them. Odaiba in Tokyo is probably the most famous place in the country for shopping malls, though nearly every prefecture has at least one.

Shiga Prefecture is no exception and Biwako Cruising Mall, Pieri Moriyama, located on the shores of beautiful Lake Biwa is a mammoth mall with a grand opening in 2008 that saw 30,000 visitors on the first day. Packed with 200 shops and a ten-screen cineplex, it was a veritable shrine to consumerism for a couple of years.

However, Pieri Moriyama is now known for a different reason…

“Customers also bought…”: Product searches for rope on Amazon JP yield creepy results

A friend of mine once shared an image with me of the product recommendations section from Amazon.com, which showed a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 paired with a bulk pack of adult daipers. Apart from shut-ins who would rather soil themselves than leave their military-based shooter and go to the bathroom, it’s hard to imagine why Amazon’s super computers would suggest that the two products were a perfect match.

An equally odd product pairing appearing on Amazon JP caught the attention of Japanese netizens earlier today, but rather than giving them a good chuckle it has quite freaked them out.

PreCure giant-headed doll effortlessly delivers your daily dose of WTF!?

Children’s shows are generally the weirdest things you can find on TV. We don’t really know why, though our assumption is that the writers and illustrators come up with ideas by pointing at random words in the dictionary. Either way, it seems that the weirder a show is, the more fans they have, and that means more toys! Which, of course, is scary for parents and their ever-shrinking wallets.

But sometimes those toys are enough to scare kids too…

Battery-saving app creeps us out, probably doesn’t save your battery life

The smartphone is perhaps one of the neatest inventions we have. They allow unprecedented access and communicative abilities—until the #$%& battery dies! What good is a five-inch screen with a quadcore processor and more gigs of ram than my last laptop if the battery is dead by noon? This has led to numerous power-saving methods, external batteries, and, of course, apps claiming to extend battery life. Today, we discovered one app that does a little more than just extend your battery life, it also creeps you out and makes you feel like a terrible pervert! Yah!

Someone Call an Exorcist! We Have a Serious Case of Demon Bread Here!

I’m sure there are many of you who like to bake your own bread. (I, unfortunately, lack the culinary skills to do so and have to resort to store-bought goods.) But bread doesn’t always turn out the way you intended, does it? It certainly didn’t when Twitter user korpi baked a batch of what was supposed to be harmless, wholesome cheese bread, and the pictures she shared on her account have apparently caught the attention of Japanese Internet users — with their shock value. But what could be so alarming about some pieces of bread? Read More

Amazing Photos of the Earth’s Weirdest Creatures at the 2013 Insect Academy Awards

As a child I used to love going into the nearby field and searching for new insects. In my area the ultimate prize was a praying mantis, however, like most people, as I grew I came to be more and more uncomfortable around things with more than four legs.

【Video】 These Japanese Dolls Are Creepy, but They Sure Can Dance

Most humanoid robots are made to look either as lifelike as possible, or as machine-like as possible; that is, similar to the robots we know from science fiction.

After seeing the “Dancing Dolls” made by YouTube user RozenZebet, we have a feeling we know why: anything in between would be absolutely terrifying.

Resident Evil’s “Tyrant” Shows Up in Akihabara, Deemed “Cute” by Passing Japanese

The sight of cosplayers in Japan is nothing unusual, but if we ran into these ghoulish fellows on the streets of Tokyo we’d certainly double-take.

Dressed as the fiendish biologically-engineered “Tyrant” giants from the Biohazard (Resident Evil in the west) games, these three enormous men wandered through Akihabara, where they were met with comments varying from “creepy as hell” to “too cute!” as they showed a softer side than we’re used to seeing in the games and spin-off movies…
