The Spammer Look


This graphic came from a small leaflet inside of my monthly AU phone bill demonstrating a new function blocking spam C-mail. I like how they represented the spam C-mail sender: fluffed-up chapatsu hair and a bad pinstriped host-suit with an open collar. I find it interesting that this very Bubbly look has become synonymous with hosts, touts, spammers, and other suspicious young males.

By the way, he’s saying “降参” — “I give up.”

    Notice that the “good” sender and the recipient are both women? AU knows where the money is.
