Domo Kun is the mascot of Japan’s NHK television station, appearing in several 30 second stop-motion sketches shown as station identification during shows, AND he’s absolutely 100% made of AWESOME.
“DOMO” means thank you in Japanese and the suffix “KUN” is used for addressing young men (like Mr. Miyagi used to called his student Daniel San).
I recognized Domo Kun when I saw him the other day at Target. It looks like they’ve “Hired” him as their Halloween mascot.
This is the video that Target has made with Domo.
