Stormtrooper spreads Firefox

Posted by on Sunday, 23 July, 2006

Do you know who Danny Choo is? If you don’t, you’ve missed one of Tokyo’s current cultural institutions.

Anyway, the Stormtrooper lended a helping hand to the Mozilla Foundation when they were spreading Firefox in Akihabara the other day. Numerous young lasses dressed up as maids (what else?) was spreading a good cause among the otakus roaming Akihabara. Not that there is anything wrong with being either an otaku or walking around in Akihabara for that matter! But these marketers sure know their target group!

Anyway, having Danny dressed up in his Stormtrooper gear made the whole event look even more surreal! Here he is trying to convince the Marketing Director of Dell Japan to install Firefox in all new PCs.

My cellphone’s memory is filling up, so I started to erase some unnecessary photos when it hit me that some of the photos I’ve snapped around Tokyo might be entertaining for you. So I present some random shots taken with my cellphone camera (thus the bad quality):
