Japanese department store targets English speaking public with ‘Fuckin' Sale’ signs

Japanese department store Osaka has found a unique way to target the English speaking public, by letting them know there is a ‘Fuckin’ Sale’ going on.

The posters outside the store advertised the 20% off January sale, and caught the attention of many American and British visitors passing by.

The store has not revealed if the poster campaign was a joke, an ingenious plan to attract the public, or if the author was confused by English slang.
