- 34-year-old man flaunts his Hello Kitty collection.
- He went viral due to the pink motorcycle that he covered with Hello Kitty images all over.
- The Hello Kitty fan addressed the questions regarding his sexual orientation, saying that he’s straight.
The iconic Japanese character Hello Kitty has earned quite the following all over the world. Ever since its establishment in 1974, it has gradually gained fans of all age and—despite it’s cute and adorable feminine appeal—all genders.
It’s rare to see such a masculine guy flaunt his Hello Kitty collection. Meet Mark Lansican. He’s a 34-year-old man from Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat. His Hello Kitty obsession can even be seen on his customized motorcycle.
Why did he decide to cover his bike with Hello Kitty?
“Nagsama-sama, parang common ‘yong motor na nakikita ko. Naisip ko, gusto ko mag-Hello Kitty. Nagtanong ako sa LTO na OK naman daw, basta ‘wag lang daw alisin ang rehistro,” he said in an interview with ABS-CBN.
Mark also decided to color his whole bedroom pink to live up to his image as a hardcode Hello Kitty lover.
“’Yong room ko pina-pink ko na, tapos nu’ng magka-extra pera ako, bumibili ako ng kaunti-unting Hello Kitty stuff.”
Aside from being a Hello Kitty fan, he’s also a member of the Suzuki Raiders Club – Sultan Kudarat Chapter as he owns two motorcycles of the brand. Both, of course, sporting Hello Kitty images.
Questions about his sexuality cannot be avoided as the majority of the character’s avid fans are of the female gender. But he answered that he’s a straight man.
“Bahala na ano [man ang] sabihin ng iba. . . . Hindi naman nasusukat ang pagkalalaki sa pink na motor, kuwarto at hello kitty collections.”
Now you may think that his collection is a lot, but he said that there would’ve been more Hello Kitty stuff in his room if only his friends didn’t ask for some.
“Kaya imbes na dumami, kumaunti na lang collection ko dahil hinihingi ng mga kaibigan ko,” he stated.
