Sad news as the nation of Japan has been overrun by giant, anthropomorphic lighters, as evidenced by this commercial. These creatures are insane, sticking their asses in our computers, sleeping with our match-headed woman, and, worst of all, teaching the English alphabet improperly.

Obviously, were these lighters an appropriate size, they would be a great boon to Japan's computer-using smokers, especially the way they light cigarettes without an open flame. But in their current size, with their propensity to sing, dance, and smoke giant cigarettes from the wrong end in public, they are nothing but another source of trouble for the already beleaguered nation.

On the other hand, if you have giant cigarettes for arms, they're probably pretty handy to have around.
