Now thar’s some edgy marketing

One of the fixtures of a weekend in Tokyo are these small trucks that slowly cruise up and down neighbourhood streets.  They blare a recorded message over a loudspeaker persuading you to give your unwanted electrical goods to the local second-hand shop.  The amazing thing is that you’ll be giving your stuff to them for free, or that you’ll even be paying them for the privilege of taking and reselling your items.  Sweet deal for some, eh?  Such is life in a city with a low car ownership and limited landfill space.

Anyway, the owner of this recycle shop truck should invest a little of their filthy lucre in some English R&D:

Recycle shop

And commence white goods jokes… now.
