Hello Kitty Apparently Has a Reversible Plush Line Straight from Hell

Despite what we were taught as kids, it seems those big golden birds we serve up at Thanksgiving might not actually be turkeys—at least if you're from Japan. If this $28 Hello Kitty plush toy is assumed to be biologically accurate—and I see no reason why it shouldn't be—turkey dinners actually come from cute cultural icons turned inside-out. It doesn't get much more horrifying than that.

And if Thanksgiving is your favorite time of the year, you might want to skip the video of this toy transforming. Seeing a turkey emerge from the back of Hello Kitty's skull is an upsetting image you won't soon be able to forget.

There's a hamburger version too that's actually slightly more adorable since it manages to retain some of the Hello Kitty imagery when transformed. But relatively speaking it's still pretty damn disturbing.
