No matter where we go, we’re always staring at thighs right? Nothing captures our attention quite like the space between a knee-high sock and a skirt.
Well apparently Japanese advertisers think so. The latest trend in Japanese marketing is having girls wear temporary tattoos on their thighs that display product advertisements. Pop-punk rockers Green Day are one American band that is ready to hop on the trend.
A Japanese marketing company called Absolute Territory PR are the team behind this flashy craze. The company allows girls who are over the age of 18 (of course) to post photos of their “zettai ryouiki koukoku” or in English, “absolute territory,” that special eye-capturing zone between the knee-high sock and bottom of the skirt. The company selects candidates to wear temporary tats of their clients on their special thigh region. As of November last year, over 1,300 have tried to take part.
Green Day decided to take part in the craze by having the company advertise their latest albums “Uno!” “Dos!” and “Tre!” on some Japanese thighs. Very rock and roll…or something.
How do you feel about bands rep’ed by thighs?
