    Yikes... As if seeing 33-yr-old Stockard Channing playing a high-schooler wasn't uncomfortable enough.

    And it seems the muscle supplement Gackt was advertising got pulled. Machine translated article below

     "Furthermore, the distributor of the muscle supplement "Metal Muscle HMB" which was also an advertisement tower was said to have been suspended sales due to "suspicion of fraud commercial law".

    The supplement that GACKT advertised as an advertising tower has been discontinued in February. Although the distributor was established two years ago, the office in Shibuya is a rental room, and other supplements Not only was there no sales record, but even when looking at the company's website etc., it was suspected that there were no ingredient indications anywhere.When purchasing with a price label of "500 yen per month" assuming a regular purchase It is a mechanism that keeps sending products for 1 year (from the third month onwards, less than 10,000 yen per month), the National Life Center said "We planned to try one month but the condition was a subscription" It is said that the claim was flooded. If you sold it using GACKT, you can think that it was so helpless to start looking for the next item by folding the company, so people who believed in GACKT would be frustrating "(weekly magazine reporter) "

    I'm detecting a common theme here: never believe in Gackt ::gaku::

    Up next on the Gacktgenda - traveling in a rickety wooden caravan selling "miracle elixir" (aka whiteout diluted in cheap vodka and coyote urine) to gullible consumers and skipping town in the veil of darkness before being discovered a fraud -- or so he hopes.

    So are you guys ready for some more GACKT NEWS? ::gaku:: Turns out Gacktcoin isn't the first coin Gackt's flogged ::meev:: Seems like he also shilled for "Assetcoin" back in 2016, which of course has long since vanished off the face of the earth. This cryptocurrency was supposedly backed by the yield of gold mining done by "Venus Corp." in Cambodia (?!)
    https://www.dailyshincho.jp/article/2018/09061130/?all=1

    The Spindle people, who are somehow still soldiering on, had to issue a press release denying any association with Assetcoin. Don't worry, this is a totally different scam cryptocurrency :lol:

    Lol omg xD

    Btw, seeing as it's on topic, does anyone remember that time when Gackt and Közi met for drinks in the early 2000s? Wasn't there a photo in that blog post? I can't find it anywhere and it's driving me crazy ::meev::

    No, I only remember Gackt's crimes ::meev::

    ... All right, I do also remember that alleged meeting, but I don't think there were any pictures at the time.

    I'm pretty sure there was a tiny and horribly low quality picture. The most I could come up with was that it was in 2006, can't find much else. Don't suppose you remember the link to Gackt's s old blog, so I can try it on the wayback machine? X)
