Did you know that November 11th is “Pocky Day“? November 11th or 11/11 is called Pocky Day because the number 1s looks like 4 pocky sticks in a line. haha funny. Anyway we enjoy pocky often, but today it’s like mandatory that you eat a pack or share it with your friends! awww sharing is caring~This year Ninomiya Kazunari from Arashi is the commercial character for Pocky. In the commercials he is “Devil Nino”, who need to be nice and share pocky with many people in order to get his human form back.
On October 31st, there was a Guinness World Records Challenge Event held by Glico (manufactures of Pocky). The challenge was creating a mosaic art work of Devil Nino using 1,307,208 chocolate and strawberry pocky. It took the dedication of 240 people and a total of 48 hours to create this art work. They got the record! Congrats!
Here is a video of their making process:
