Interesting news stories hit the wire each day and this one is as interesting as they come. According to a picture found plastered all over the internet, thanks to one friendly shopper, a store in Osaka, Japan ran a campaign for its sale that was full of shock and awe.

If we could only pick the brains of the shoppers who were rummaging through the goods in the Osaka Department Store. There were signs advertising the store’s sale using a derogatory word on it. One such shopper, Zarina Yamaguchi, thought that the advertisement banners hanging in the store were quite funny. She shot a photo of the banners back on January 4 and explained:

“Well, a childhood friend of mine and I were strolling along the local street in Shinsaibashi, Osaka. Being around the extra-genki Osaka-jins and salesladies screaming ‘Irashaimasse’ from every direction for the ongoing New Year Sales has never made us feel more at home. On our way to catch up over coffee, I walked into this store to check some things. Truth is, I didn’t even notice the posters. When I looked around, each corner had posters that printed ‘fucking sale’. I didn’t know how to react but what caught me by surprise was that none of the people around me seem to understand the profanity. My friend Sarah and I, both of mixed Japanese descent, both bilingual in Japanese and English, were struck with the comical twist. Pretty sure I would have never seen this elsewhere, I had to snap a shot.”

The shopper says that the store is in Shinsaibashi, next to the Hearton Hotel Shinsaibashi and Planet 3rd Café.
