The Pokemon Company and P-Bandai have announced a new Gengar pillow that allows you to rest your head inside Gengar’s mouth and people are very excited about it…for reasons.There’s no judgment here though — everyone has those days where you just want to go home and curl up inside the head of the totally-sweet-and-not-at-all-scary Pokemon, Gengar. Thanks to The Pokemon Company and P-Bandai, that’s now possible with their new Gengar pillow cushion for the price of 25,950 yen, or $249.54. The pillow sold out in just over an hour, as noted by Pokeshopper, but perhaps a second wave of pillows will be announced.
Not only can you rest your head inside this Gengar’s pillowy mouth, but you can use the cushion’s 5 feet, 5 inches long tongue as a blanket to wrap yourself up in or lay on for additional comfort. As you might expect, the internet is going wild for this new pillow and there are already plenty of memes, jokes, and fears circulating social media.
Here are just a few of IGN’s favorites:

“Rumor has it that its gigantic mouth leads not into its body, filled with cursed energy, but instead directly into the afterlife,” reads the Pokedex entry for Gengar in Pokemon Sword. So maybe reconsider before putting your head in.
The Pokemon Shield entry says, “it lays traps, hoping to steal the lives of those it catches” and that “if you stand in front of its mouth, you’ll hear your loved ones’ voices calling out to you.” If you’re going to stick your head into this Gengar pillow’s mouth, maybe consider not doing it alone.
