Old Canadian Fashion: LED Lights for Your Teeth

leave a comment »

I couldn’t believe it: the New York Times is touting this “new” fashion craze sweeping Japan.

Because I’ve seen it before. In Canada. Suburban Burlington, Ontario, to be exact.

My son had colour changing light up blinky doo-dads waaay back in 2005.

I’m not sure where they originated, exactly, they were a gift from one of his cool aunts, if memory serves. Who’d have thought Burlington would be a world fashion leader?

Guess it never occurred to the NYT to look north of the 49th.

[Thanks Howard!]
