It’s hard to imagine how this idea initially seemed promising: A café owner in Japan tried advertising a cutesy Molotov cocktail promotion. He set out a sign that read “Molotov Cocktails: One for 100 yen” alongside a box of half-liter Kirin bottles, each conspicuously stuffed with a rag — but very inconspicuously empty. The otherwise ready-for-use firebombs alarmed pretty much every passerby:
Local police weren’t amused, either, once they noticed pics of the special popping up on Twitter.
Apparently officers gave the owner a warning for “creating a stressful environment for others.”
