A Japanese amateur artist has given the popular phrase ‘to put your money where your mouth is’ a literal sense by creating an ultra realistic coin purse shaped like a human mouth.
Complete with stubble beard, soft pink lips and even realistic teeth and gums, the coin purse designed by Japanese music producer and amateur artist ‘Doooo’ is one of freakiest things I’ve ever seen. Not only does it look like the lower half of a man’s face, but it even opens up like a human mouth, revealing ultra-realistic teeth and pink, wet-looking gums. It looks like the fake flesh of an advanced android, but it’s actually a coin purse, which is somehow even more bizarre.
Doooo unveiled his unusual creation on June 1st, showing it off to his fans in a short Twitter video that went viral almost instantly. At the time of this writing the clip had over 12 million views.
SAYS.com reached out to the Japanese artist, but couldn’t get too much out of him. He revealed that he worked on the project for two months, but asked about the process and materials used, Doooo said it was “a secret”.
People have been asking the artist about the price of such an unusual coin purse, but he said that his was one of a kind and that he currently doesn’t have plans to commercialize it. Judging by the degree of realism alone, this thing would probably cost an arm and a leg.
