    Come on fire away the comments!!
    There are serious issues to be worried about, along being GREEN!
    Food crisis is on its way,New world order to name a few,..
    What is world comming to…..

    bahahahaha! Okay, that’s some comedy gold, people. I would LOVE to see those interactions unfold, both for “correct” ecological reasons and also for the mirth they would induce.

  • J.L.

    Very exciting!!,i would love to wear one!!

  • O.

    what’s the link with mexican catchers?….
    I thought they had good masked heroes in Japan!

  • dinah

    does anyone really think this will ever be used by sane people?!?!

    Modular used the right word, silliness. I would also say that this is not just silly, but ridiculous. A lame way to try to force people to conform to someone else’s point of view and way of life. If living a green life is such a great thing then live by example and everyone else will see it for what it is and follow. A bunch of idiots putting bags on their heads trying to scare or force others to conform should be punched in the stomach.

    The idiot that wears(buys) this has no eye holes and as is as blind as the brand that designed it.

  • kaptainkrunch

    Where do I get one?!?!?!
    This is brilliant, suddenly anyone can be an environmental vigilante.

    I think it’d be better to have clear Eye holes though. And the idea falls apart if there’s anything actually in the bag. Eco-warriors ultimate adversary become having gone to the shops.

  • tmac

    hahahah this is delightfully dumb and tacky. I’d buy one for me and all my friends for sure! I wouldn’t call this a “lame way to try to force people to conform” since it is so blatantly humorous. It’s not threatening, its silly.

    great job!

  • sketchbook

    how do i beat someones ass if i can’t see them?!

  • icaronycteris

    i also don’t see the link with el santo’s mask design or anywhere citing that it came from there, besides I also think that japanese imagination is way unique to have this just as it is…

  • squeed

    why put the bag on your own head when you could be putting it on the “offenders” head?? surely that would make more sense..lol

  • ste

    @sketchbook
    “how do i beat someones ass if i can’t see them?!”

    thats the clue! you can wear the bag as a mask to hide your idendity in your brutal eco-fight… now they need to protect people from hurt one another so they thought lets make em’ blind ;-) just for safety reason!
