Japanese Are Polishing Foil Balls To Perfection, And The Result Is Too Satisfying

, , , , , ,

Aluminum foil looks pretty boring. It is used for packaging, insulation, cooking… and making really shiny balls that appear to have no real purpose, apparently. That’s right, thanks to a Japanese jeweler, the whole country became obsessed with refining these metal leaves, and we aren’t sure how to react.

According to Twitter user @puchuco709, they took a whole 16-metre (52-feet) long roll of the federal government brainwashing-blocking material and started abusing it – hammering, polishing it. After probably a gazillion repeats, the ball was finished. People instantly fell in love with this low-budget DIY project, flooding Japanese social media with their very own versions. Can you think of a use for it? Let us know in the comments!

It all starts with an aluminum foil ball like this one:
