If you know anything about Japan, you know that they have some of the strangest vending machines. The most infamous one's being of the used panty variety. (Yuck. . . ) But this one has it's own unique appeal to it. I'd buy a Sprite from it even if I already had a drink in my hand.
Forget about automation, just stick a person in there and have them hand out drinks all day long. Don't forget to smile!
(Also - if you're wondering like I did about "Sprite on Fire" it's an Asian remix of Sprite with spicy ginger flavoring added into it. Supposed to wake your taste buds up I suppose. Wonder how that tastes?
((As a reader pointed out - yes the bottle to the right is Chinese, Sprite on Fire is served in both countries.))
