How many references can you find in these bustling hidden object images?

How would fourteen of the world’s most vibrant cities look if you asked an artist to cram everything that represents them into one explosive image? Read on below for all the wonderfully diverse pictures, and see if you can spot the hidden passenger.

German airline Lufthansa has put together a campaign that features images of 14 different destinations they fly to, drawn by artists of each respective country. The title of the campaign is ‘Passengers on tour’ and each image is a ‘hidden object cartoon’ featuring stylized representations of the country’s culture, famous landmarks, animals, and so on.

In the midst of all the business in each image, an airline passenger is hidden, holding a suitcase with the Lufthansa logo and the idea is for you to find them. It’s basically like looking for Wally in the Where’s Wally? series (or Waldo for all you Americans out there). Remember spending hours poring over a particularly packed picture then finally giving up in frustration, only to have his stripey jumper practically jump off the page at you when you come back to it later? Good times.

To start you off, here we have Japan represented in one bright and busy image exploding with movement and bold colors. The picture is crammed with things that represent Japanese culture, from anime characters to folk craft objects like daruma and maneki-neko. How many references do you recognise? And where is that pesky passenger?

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Discovers She’s a Robot in Upcoming Fantasy Film

introduction02

introduction03

Was there ever a time wherein you wondered if Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, she of the ever changing hairstyles and bizarre music videos, is really human? Well, you’re not alone. In fact, even Kyary herself is wondering the same thing.

The jpop star finds the shocking answer to her query in the movie “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Cinema JOHN” which will begin screening in Japan on July 12. Shooting of said film started last April. It was shot in Japan, Germany and France by a crew made up of only the director, the producer, the cameraman and the screenwriter.

Of the film, Kyary has this to say:

“This movie was made on an international scale as it was filmed not only in Japan but also in Europe. It expresses a sweet world view. In a good way, it is a fanciful film which we created as an experiment. At my concerts, I perform in front of a diverse audience made up of little children to adults including junior and high school students. I hope this film could also reach out to people of all ages.”

The movie’s introduction according to its OHP:
Here’s a sad truth… Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is not a human being.
The rumor spread out during the European shows of her “NANDA COLLECTION WORLD TOUR 2014”. People questioned “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is not a human being!?” A few people who are in the singer’s inner circle tried to reveal the truth but they soon went missing.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, without knowing why, flew back to Japan. She soon faces the bitter truth. She is not a human being but a robot! Shocked by the revelation, she embarks on a journey to find out who she really is.

[PICS] Super cute macarons!

Macarons are generally delectable to look at, especially in a store where the colorful little round treats are lined up neatly in a glass showcase.

If you’re one of those people who have difficulty choosing a piece from a box full of gorgeously colored macarons, you’re likely to have more trouble sinking your teeth into one of these adorable character macarons!

[PICS] “Neko nabe” – Cute cats napping in pots and pans

Anyone who has ever owned a cat will know of their fondness for boxes, pots, pans, and bags — if an object can in any way become a bed, fort, or platform to sit on, they’ll claim it. They are also, as cat owners will no doubt have noticed, at once both deceptively long animals (when they stretch out or are held vertically, they magically unfold like some kind of fur-covered extendable ladder) and yet can squeeze into some of the smallest spaces imaginable.

With that in mind, and because a) it’s the weekend and b) they’re just so cute, here’s a little selection of photos of cats making pots their own.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu expresses her love for Barbie

On May 4th, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu attended the Barbie Awards Ceremony at ‘HARAJUKU KAWAii!! WEEK2014’ in Harajuku.

Like Barbie dolls, Kyary has been popular with girls around the world. As such, she was chosen to receive the ‘Barbie Award 2014’. Regarding Barbies, she expressed, “Girls will always admire her. She is charismatic. She’s my teacher.” She continued, “Like Barbie, I want to become a woman who will continue to shine.”

Kyary also shared her own Barbie collection, “My favorites are the princess Barbie and the Barbie that’s riding an unicorn. They were also very cheap.” She then commented on the Barbie dolls that were displayed on the stage, “I’m fascinated just by looking at them. I’m going to refer to them for my costume.”

To commemorate the award, Kyary will be presented with a “portrait doll”, which is a doll that is based on a real human being. During the event, Kyary received an image illustration instead of the actual doll. “The design itself is cute. It’s like a dream to have the costume from my debut song ‘PON PON PON’ become a Barbie doll.”
