Découvrez Koro, un petit lama que la gourmandise entraîne dans une drôle de m... Ce superbe court-métrage d’animation raconte la mésaventure de Koro, un lama sacrément mignon. Ce dernier cherche désespérément à manger une herbe qui se trouve de l’autre côté d’une barrière électrifiée… Mais la tâche ne s’avère pas être si facile que ça.

The 6 Most Terrifying Features of Japanese Toilets You're probably already familiar with a toilet. If you're not, it's that poop-eatin' chair in the other room.

The Japanese are those few people.
