This lip-shaped coffee cup lid is next level creepy


EVER WISH SOMEONE would feed you your morning coffee from their own mouth? Well now that can happen!

A Korean designer has created a coffee lid that features models of the human nose and mouth, so you can get a kiss with your coffee.

The lid was created by designer Jang Woo-Seok after he noticed that coffee cups “lacked flair of any kind”. Did you realise your coffee cup was lacking flair? You Philistine!

“While coffee can be obtained every day, you aren’t always guaranteed a kiss,” he told Mashable. “This lid aims to solve that problem.”

Woo-Seok appears to want the cup-lips to be as close as possible to the experience of kissing a real human being:

There was only a mouth on the lid to start with… I realised that touching noses is an essential point in order [for it] to feel realistic. So I added the nose and facial muscles to the lid.

But why – it’s not – ah, never mind.

At the moment this is just a design (thank god) and there are no current plans to roll out lip-lids in your local coffee shop.

We weren’t going to say it, but it looks too much like a certain male sex toy for our liking. Just an observation…
