My mom gave me an early Christmas present!:
This is Gachapin, some sort of Japanese kid’s show character. I know him from The Killers awesome video Read My Mind. And more specifically from the Making of RMM video on YouTube which I have probably watched more than the actual video!
Sarah and I are quite fond of Gachapin. She can crack me up just by re-enacting the scene where Ronnie shows Gachapin how to brush his
teeth tooth. Whereas he makes my mom sad because he looks so forlorn in the arcade. But he gets to cuddle with Ronnie so big win for Gachapin!
My mom asked her friend who was in Japan this summer to find me some merchandise and that’s how I came to have a little toy and band-aids (or for my British girlfriends “plasters” 🙂 )
It always makes me giggle when my Obsessiveness Goes International and random friends and acquaintances get dragged into the shenanigans!
