As if we needed another reason to hate Green Day:

Well, media placement doesn’t get much creepier than this.

Green Day has employed Absolut Territory to promote the Japanese release of their new CD “!Uno!”

Japanese PR company Absolute Territory has begun paying young women (18+) to wear advertising stickers on their thighs between the edge of their miniskirts and their high socks.

As of November of last year, over 1,300 women had applied for the agency’s service, and their number is growing fast, according to Oddity Central.

After choosing a sticker ad, the woman has to wear it for at least eight hours a day, or more, for a set period of time, in order to receive payment. To prove they are actively going out and promoting their thigh ads, they have to post photos of themselves wearing the stickers on their Facebook, Twitter or other social media accounts.

This story has enough to break your creep meter — hacky conformist rock stars who toe the leftist party line while they exploit women, corporate greed, young people selling themselves, and Big Brother watching over it all on social networking. And to top it off, BuzzFeed broke the story.

I need a shower now.

Seriously? I know Japan has a reputation of being the weirdest of nations on the internet, but this is just too far. I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the name of the PR group (for your information: "absolute territory" is Japanese slang for the area of a woman's thighs visible between her thigh-high socks and miniskirt; comes from the 90's TV series Neon Genesis Evangelion), and the horrible economy combining to create something that sounds this desperate, though.
