Has watching too much anime on your phone left you with painful hand cramps? Then you're in luck, because Japanese anime network Animax made a hands-free, crotch-harness smartphone holder that looks like a huge swan growing out of your private parts.
Now you can watch all the anime you want!
This useless solution to the actual problem of watching too much anime on your phone is an example of the Japanese art of Chindogu—a fanciful invention that causes more problems than it solves. In this case, according to the video below, it lets you look awesome in coffee shops, maid cafes, the gym and even at work. But be warned, it can get stuck in elevator doors, though it also appears to draw the attention of swan-harness-loving hotties.
Of course, if you don't want a giant swan gracefully erupting from your genitals, they have Samurai, Cobra, Geisha and Tengu phone holders. A Tengu is a supernatural creature from the Shinto religion with a long, long nose (which is supposed to represent a bird beak, not a penis, get your mind out of the gutter).
If you want to get technical, the device is not actually for sale—it's just a viral promotional video for the fact that the anime network is available streaming on your phone. Which is too bad, really, because it would be the ideal holiday gift for the Pokemon Go lover in your life.
