This garbage bin looks like the new Mac Pro, and is selling like hot cakes!

 

You know how people are comparing the new Mac Pro to a garbage can? Turns out one Japanese garbage can is already reaping the rewards.

 

Below, you can see the Mac Pro. No, strike that. Below, you can see a garbage bin by Osaka-based design firm Ideaco. It really, really looks like the new Mac Pro!
Dubbed the Ideaco New Tubelor, it looks so much like the Mac Pro that this waste bin, which came before the Mac Pro and was first launched in 2006, apparently just shot up the Amazon Japan rankings.
Amazon Japan’s official Twitter account even jokingly tweeted that the Ideaco garbage can “was not the new Mac Pro”.

The gag worked. That tweet was retweeted over thirteen thousand times and favorited nearly three thousand times. And currently, this garbage can is ranked number deux in the online retailer’s interior furniture best sellers. It’s also Amazon Japan’s best selling garbage can.

There are also the inevitable funny Amazon reviews, with people “warning” that this was in fact a garbage can and pointing out that it could not run Thunderbolt 2. There was even a wry worry about how the black cylinder could show dust.

But as one Amazon Japan reviewer noted, “It does have the innovative ability to hide the plastic bag by a concealing cover.” Shame it can’t run Thunderbolt, though!
