Random Weekend Picture 17


Posters for these McDonald's glasses are all over the place because of the World Cup. I have no idea if these are unique to Japan (I doubt they are), but glasses nearly identical to these have been given away in promotions in the past. These glasses have a Coke logo on one side and a soccer design on the other. Previous versions were available in similar colors, but with a Coke logo design on both sides. We had a green, pink and blue one at one point, but they were so crappy that they developed cracks from normal use within months.

I'm not a soccer fan, but a lot of my Japanese acquaintances and students are talking about it. Most of them have said that the Japanese team is woefully poor this year. I'll have to take their word for it.

we also have those here in the Philippines but they're really crappy =( I almost injured my hand when I was washing it, it cracked like a brittle plastic cup!

I think two of ours broke in exactly the same way! They're actually quite dangerous!

Thank you for commenting!

Haha they are here in Singapore too! I was tempted to get these (which meant having to take my niece out to McDonald's since I don't eat anything from the golden arches;-) But now that some of you have commented on how fragile they are...I guess not then:-)

We got some of them years ago in the UK! But they never cracked, and I think that my parents still use them now...
They must be a worldwide thing eh!

I've seen them at McDonald's, but I'm more interested in the little finger puppets. My son would love them! lol XDD
