Godzilla’s “Apology” Press Conference! “What The Friday!” A Contrite Movie Monster Confronts The Media! Wacky New Action Figures You Can Buy!

Godzilla Holds A Press Conference!

I find this “What The Friday” to be hilarious: new Godzilla action figures depict the iconic Monster holding a press conference to apologize for his actions!

As Mediate.com reports:

“Godzilla’s Amazon store now features movie monsters such as Godzilla, Mecha Godzilla, Ghidra, and Hedorah. The set of four monster figure keychains, whose names mean “acts of destruction,” “acts of imitating,” “acts of invasion,” and “smog,” are placed in front of little podiums with microphones and messages with their respective apology explanations.”

Other figures int he series also are depicted by microphones facing the press as well!

This Godzilla keychain set is for sale on Amazon for $125 a piece. As Mediate points out:

“Most of the fictional monster characters in the franchise are known for mass destruction, but some, such as the benevolent Mothra, defend the earth.”

However, one Monster refused to apologize to Japan:

That’s right, you can see this tweet that points out that Hedorah refused to apologize for anything!

I think I need these right now!

This is exactly what I love about “What The Friday” – stuff that makes me smile, shake my head and laugh about he world we live in – bravo to the manufacturer for these “contrite” Monsters!

Mediate had the story, but the great images were also shared on the terrific Twitter site you can see here:


My wife and I had our own chance to hang out with Godzilla in Tokyo:

Yes, a hotel in Tokyo turned itself in a shrine for Godzilla when we were there – look at him hanging out on the hotel’s outdoor deck:

The lobby was filled with great Godzilla memorabilia, which you can see here:


And if you missed last week’s “What The Friday”, then you missed out on a refreshing new soft drink from Japan:

Crack Open A Crab Cola!

Yes, a new cola that is spider crab-flavored! Taste it here:


Let me know if you will be ordering these Godzilla action figures!
