Can I Kick It? No.

This is a very beautifully designed football by the acclaimed Japanese Poku artist, Takashi Murakami. However at $400 a pop, I think you'd have to team it with cashmere jumpers for goalposts and a platinum whistle to do it justice. And then stand around dissecting its relevance to Otaku culture in the context of disenfranchised Tokyo youth and their obsession with the unattainable goal of perfection. But whatever you do, don't get it muddy :)
