CHIP-FACED

Posted:

Japanese snack company Calbee recently staged a promotion around popular singer Nana Mizuki, giving away 10 backstage passes to her Aug. 3 Yokohama concert to the purchasers of 10 lucky bags of secretly marked potato chips. Her perhaps-hugest fan, Kazuki Fukumoto, 25, was so determined to win one that, by the time he was arrested for littering in May, he'd bought and dumped 89 cartons of potato chip packages, weighing more than 400 pounds, which were found at six locations around Kobe and Akashi. Police estimate he'd spent about $3,000.
