In Japan once a year Nippon TV holds a telethon called "24 Hour Television" for charity and guess who has taken her part in it? Hello Kitty of course. I don't know how many plushes are out there but I have one and that makes me very very happy. It should really be called 24 hour shopping as a telethon selling to me.
Apparently one of the celebrity guests on the telethon was selected for a contest to change into a bikini on air and forgot it was that "time of the month" and it was caught on camera. I will not post the pic but you can see the full story here.
Hello Kitty tried that stunt herself and came off without a hitch.
