Looking over the blog, we suddenly realized that our recent entries were a little too serious. Sure, we like to relay important information, but we certainly don’t want to get too stuffy. So here’s something silly to lighten up your Wednesday: Afro Ken.
You mean you don’t know about Afro Ken? Okay, here’s the deal. Afro Ken is a character from San-X (a great company that competes with Sanrio, the makers of Hello Kitty). ANYWAY, Afro Ken is a cute little dog that just happens to sport a killer rainbow afro. But that’s not the best part! Afro Ken’s afro also magically transforms to suit his location. For example, when Afro Ken is in a disco, his wig turns into the style of a disco ball. When he’s at a soccer match, it turns into a soccer ball. Strange? Yes. Cool? Very.
For those that are still confused, perhaps this Afro Ken Video (kudos to Good Experience for pointing this out) will help clear things up. Or, click on the San-X Character Page and then choose Afro Ken. If you like dogs with afros (and who doesn’t?) then believe me, this is for you.
