To promote the upcoming installment of The Ring saga, Sadako 3D, advertisers have been driving a giant version of scary videotape girl Sadako Yamamura around the Shibuya neighborhood in Tokyo. Behold a movie monster that has absolutely no business being the size of an ice cream truck.
You remember the creepy little girl who crawled out of the TV and killed all of those people in The Ring, right? Well here she is throwing out the first pitch at a baseball game in Japan. Super fun idea, everyone. Yipes!
