This Spirited Away Piggy Bank Gobbles Up Your Change

You can now celebrate the classic anime film Spirited Away (2001) with a piggy bank based on the movie's most corruptible character, No-Face. In case you don't remember, the traveling spirit gets itself into a mess of trouble after being surrounded by the greed at The Bathhouse. After discovering that a little bit of fake gold can go a long way, the character ends up eating everything there (along with a few employees).

Now you can put No-Face's money grubbing to good use. The adorable piggy bank depicts No-Face in his normal state, but when you slip some coins in the red bowl, the spirit's mouth emerges to devour the offering (anything weighing over 1 ounce will trigger the sensor). The bank even burps after finishing its monetary meal. Along with burping, it also speaks and plays music from the movie.

The bank will hit Donguri Kyowakoku stores in Japan in May, but you can also buy it online. Pre-orders have already begun and you can grab one for 5184 yen (roughly $45).

If you can't cough up the gold (like No-Face) to buy this Ghibli-inspired money holder, consider one of the other coin stealing banks on the market.

Watch One Second From Every Game of Thrones Episode in Under Two Minutes

Game of Thrones aired its final episode on May 19, and despite some harsh reviews, many fans are finding it hard to accept the show’s end. While some consider Thrones counseling or rewatching the series with a tissue box handy, others on the internet are creating really cool montage videos.

Twitter user Andy Kelly recently posted a fan-made video of one-second clips from all 73 Game of Thrones episodes. The video shows the most memorable scenes from the series, such as Ned Stark’s decapitation, the Red Wedding, King Joffrey being poisoned, Jon Snow’s resurrection, the killing of the Night King, and Daenerys Targaryen’s death.

You really can’t capture all of the action-packed events and shocking twists that happened within the eight seasons of Game of Thrones so quickly, but the video does a good job of giving encapsulating it in under two minutes. And it’s easier than binge-watching it again.

Jimmy Kimmel Shows Us What a Game of Thrones/Full House Mashup Would Look Like

Two of the least-similar shows in television history just came together … in a parody courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live. The hilarious video depicts a hypothetical Game of Thrones spinoff series where Jaime Lannister joins two classic characters from Full House for a show appropriately titled Full House Lannister.

While there is at least one Thrones spinoff already in the works, Kimmel couldn’t wait for the series to premiere, so he made his own to deal with the post-Thrones blues.

The video starts off in typical Full House fashion with Joey (Dave Coulier) trying to open a pickle jar, which Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) stabs with his sword and destroys. After a few pun-filled jokes, Jaime gets upset and Danny (Bob Saget) sits down with him to talk. Jaime explains that he had a fight with his sister, but when he reveals it’s because he got Cersei pregnant again, a creeped out Danny flees the situation. Joey then comes over to seemingly console Jaime, but instead hilariously says, “I was just going to tell you to stop f***ing your sister.”

The parody perfectly combines the silliness of Full House and the darker topics of Game of Thrones—and the cherry on top is a shadow of a dragon flying over San Francisco in the credits.
