Hamburgirl Z – Japan’s Hamburger-Themed Girl Band

When it comes to idol groups in Japan, good ol’ music just doesn’t cut it anymore. They’ve got to throw in an additional gimmick or two, just to standout among the massive competition. And Hamburgirl Z is doing just that – it’s the world’s only hamburger-themed girl band!

In the words of Japanese culture blogger Tofugu, the new West Japan band is a “group of cute, smiling girls dancing and singing in hamburger costumes. Their sole purpose is to serenade hamburger lovers, by singing only about, well, burgers.

The girls are dressed like different hamburger ingredients – there’s beef, lettuce, egg, tomato, fish, chicken, onion, pork/bacon, avocado, pineapple, and even eggplant. There are a total of 15 members in the band sporting 14 ingredients. They perform at a variety of events across West Japan, and sell merchandise after the concert is over.

Chinese Fast-Food Stall Owner Hires Buff Male Model to Flip Burgers, Makes a Killing

While good food might sell itself, there’s nothing like some good ol’ ‘ripped’ charm to boost sales. The owner of a Chinese fast-food stall is using this fact to his advantage. In a brilliant marketing move, he recently employed a muscular male model to flip and sell burgers to his customers. The humble stall has now become a hit with the ladies, sales are through the roof and he’s making a killing!

Wang Meng, who owns a small food stall at a night market in Shenyang city, said that he decided to employ a man known as ‘John’ because of his impressive physique. John doesn’t speak much Chinese, but Meng seems to have made up for that by having John flip hamburgers topless. After all, there’s no language like body-language. Meng said he specifically chose hamburgers because he didn’t really want to challenge his new chef’s culinary skills (or lack thereof).
