“In an age where creative marketing is king, even feces can be turned into gold!”
In American society, it is considered rude to engage in bathroom humor with people whom you barely know. In Taiwan, a restaurant is serving up a hot and steaming plate of bathroom humor, delicious bathroom humor.
It all began when one of Modern Toilet’s partners was reading manga – Dr. Slump On The Toilet – and had an explosive idea! Could people overcome their perceptions of the way a food is presented and just enjoy the taste? After a successful bout with serving chocolate ice cream in squat toilet-shaped bowls, the company knew that had to push – push harder for a wide-ranged menu. Everything from urinal drinking cups, toilet soup bowls and even ice cream that comes in three flavors, diarrhea with dried droppings (chocolate), bloody poop (strawberry) and green dysentery (kiwi), were introduced to hungry and confused customers.
So how did consumers digest this bizarre concept? They loved it! It’s fair to say that a good number of people were completely grossed out, but after the initial shock of the presentation and decoration (toilet seats for chairs and sinks for tables) subsided, they gobbled the bathroom-inspired le plat principal right up!
Would you be able to overcome the visual presentation and let your taste buds and sense of smell lead your way to food bliss?
And just because I couldn’t resist:
What do you call a vegetarian with diarrhea? A salad shooter.
