I was browsing through a Japanese grocery store in Madrid yesterday, when I noticed these rather provocative boxes of fried snacks. Needless to say, I stopped dead in my tracks.

Just look at those shrimp! Frisky little buggers, aren’t they?! By the way, that pun was intended.

Either Japanese brand managers are incredibly naïve, or they’re masters of not-so-subliminal advertising. I can just imagine the marketing slogan:

“Shrimp Chips: As Effective As Viagra®…and They Go Great With Beer, Too!”
