Boobs become cup holders in this ‘hands-free’ internet challenge

A “hands-free tapioca” challenge has become the solution for Japanese netizens who may be tired of holding their drinks.

The challenge began with an illustration on June 10 from manga artist Kiseki Himura where his character is seen drinking milk tea from a cup on her boobs.

Himura’s sketch piqued netizens’ curiosity if breasts can be used as a drink holder in real life. Using the hashtag “hands-free tapioca”, translated in a report from AsiaOne on June 18, people tried it out for themselves.

Twitter user @archepro proved it can be done on June 13.

While the “hands-free tapioca” challenge seems to fit the more well-endowed, it did not stop others from putting their own twist. Twitter user @harehireho showed a video where she balanced her juice box on her chest while lying down.  

A netizen with the handle @llumium did not reveal a photo; instead, the artist released a sketch on Monday, June 17 of video game character Kirby attempting the challenge.

Besides women joining the challenge, the hashtag has inspired more anime doodles of characters balancing a cup of milk tea on their chests. NVG
