Is anyone even surprised that this happened in Japan? It all began last year when Japanese comedy site, Daily Portal Z, immortalized themselves in Google Street View fame by wearing pigeon masks (you can check it right here).
This year, the trolling got bigger. The same website held a ‘Hato Event (‘Hato’ meaning ‘pigeon’ in Japanese) at Osaka’s Grand Front mall, wherein people could come in wearing a pigeon mask and get their photos taken. Most of them took to Twitter and posted photos of themselves at work, at a sushi restaurant, at a hot spring, at a bowling alley, and other places giant humanoid pigeons hang out.
All in a day’s work, Japan. All in a day’s work.
