If ever there was a contest for for the least motivated foodstuff ever, Mr.Gudetama would be the grand champion of “I don’t wanna”.
This apathetic egg is the newest character to join the Sanrio family. While most of the other characters in the franchise can be seen enjoying their hobbies, Mr.Gudetama seems to only enjoy one thing: Napping. He is the result of Sanrio’s “Edible Character General Election” fan poll last year; winning second place after Kirimi-chan, a piece of salmon.
Gudetama’s name is a mix of the words “gudegude” (lethargic) and “tamago” (egg), but for such a lazy little guy, he sure has been busy. Mr. Gudetama has a twitter (where he complains about having to tweet), his own merchandise, and even a music video!
The Mr. Gudetama song is going to be my theme any time I have to get up before 7AM.
You can also get advice from Mr. Gudetama by asking questions on the ask-gudetama-anything page. Mostly, he will say things like “Meh”, “Can I go Now?”, or “Not today”.
If you feel a kinship with Mr. Gudetama and feel compelled to embody his lethargy, you can buy yourself a kigurumi suit and laze around, decrying all forms of activity. This may instigate some rather spectacular arguments if you live with parents or roommates so cosplay wisely.
Mr. Gudetama’s slugguishness knows no bounds and is taking the internet by storm. Is this egg your spirit animal? What is your favorite Sanrio character? Let us know in the comments below!
