I spotted this warning sign on a column in Shinjuku-eki last night and it set my mind to racing, trying to figure out the exact message the bulletin means to convey. I mean, I could ask someone to help me read the kanji I don’t understand, but as a former graphic designer I still believe in visual communication. The image alone should be enough. So.
“Parents: Please be alert for strange men who will try to lure your children to their deaths by snatching their hats and dangling them over the third rail with a Nintendo Ultra Hand.”
Alternate interpretations are welcome.
