Hands-free tapioca bubble tea challenge goes viral online in Japan

Breasts and boba balls take over the Internet as cleavages become drink holders across the country.

Tapioca bubble teas are absolutely booming in Japan right now. And if past trends have taught us anything, it’s that whenever something becomes popular here, it doesn’t take long for fan art to start appearing in honour of it.

That fan art appeared on Twitter this week, when Kiseki Himura (@Strangestone), a Japanese illustrator and creator of weekly Twitter illustration series Getsuyoubi no Tawawa (Tawawa on Monday) posted this image online.

If the image looks familiar, that’s because this is the same web series that kicked off the viral Tawawa Challenge in 2016, which inspired thousands of people around the world to balance their smartphones on their chests. Himura’s tapioca image has created an all-new challenge for 2019, as people everywhere are now balancing bubble teas on their breasts, and sketching their favourite characters taking part in the dare as well.
