Horror character Sadako reimagined as a slushie

The iconic Japanese horror character Sadako is coming to life - apparently at a fast food restaurant near you. And no, she is not coming back as a person.

Instead, she is being 'reimagined' as a light blue-coloured, ramune-flavoured slushie drink with a messy topping of chocolate sauce at the top that will be sold at Japanaese burger chain Lotteria later this month as a promotional tie-in for the new Sadako 3D horror film slated for release in August.

As if the design is not weird enough, the Japanese environment ministry has apparently recruited Sadako as an official mascot that will also see the ministry work with Lotteria to promote this drink, according to a Rocketnews24 report.
