Pizza Hut Japan now run by cats – called Pizza Cats!
Pizza Hut Japan has opened a new shop. They’ve done the grand opening of Pizza Cats!, which is essentially cats handling your pizzas at Pizza Hut.

Of course, the YouTube channel tells (in Japanese) that the store is fake, luckily. It doesn’t seem that the cats are very good at handling pizza.

In any case, they really like to do things differently in Japan: this theme website and accompanying videos show that again.
