“The Ring” author’s toilet paper of terror will be printed in English
The toilet paper pictured above was a hit in Japan, selling over 300,000 volumes in 2009 and 2010. Pretty good for a specialty toilet paper that is probably too scary for you to read in the bathroom…all alone…because this paper is printed with a novella by Koji Suzuji (author of The Ring, Dark Water). The novella, called The Drop (pun intentional?) is indeed a horror story, and spans three volumes…er, rolls, of toilet paper.
In just two days, on June 21st, this product will be available in English for about $7.88. That’s a bit steep for toilet paper, but pretty darn reasonable for a novella. It seems that Hayashi Paper, the company behind this product, is interested in selling it overseas and is developing sales avenues. For me, this is too weird not to pick up when it’s available. I’ll let you know when I find out where it’s being sold.
