What has a Pikachu head, entirely too many body segments, and nobody asked for? If you answered a Pikachu centipede body pillow, then you’re correct. Available from Chinese online retailer AliExpress, falling asleep with one of these ‘Very Long Pikachu Insect Plushes’ can almost guarantee a poor night’s sleep filled entirely with nightmares.
Available in four sizes (85cm, 1.1m, 1.4m, and 1.7m), the Creepachus cost between $21 and $90 depending on length, and I have the sneaking suspicion they’re not actually officially licensed products from Nintendo. Or a product that should exist at all for that matter.
Who comes up with this stuff? ‘You know what the world needs? Pikachu centipede body pillows,’ somebody actually thought to themselves before going the distance and having them manufactured. I mean that’s something I wouldn’t imagine even in my wildest dreams, and let me tell you – I’ve had some wild dreams. The things I’ve seen! But never ever a Pikachu centipede body pillow, just so we’re clear.
