So this 50-year-old fashion consultant Takanobu Nishimoto runs a very unusual company called “Ossan Rental“. So for just $8.89 an hour you can get yourself a middle-aged man to listen to yoi talk thrash, or listen to you while doing chores or even help you chase away stalkers.
In Japan, middle-aged men are often made fun of for their stereotypical receding hairline, rotund beer bellies and unhygienic habits, shared Nishimoto, and he set up the service with the intention to dispel all the negative stereotypes of Japanese ‘uncles’. Most of his cliente are women from their 20’s to 50’s and their needs vary, some seek career and love advice, while others simply want companionship at concerts or at bars. “Ossan” also help customers move furniture or play the role of a boyfriend to ward off stalkers.
with popular ‘Ossan’ garnering 50 to 60 bookings, earning up to $888.90( wow… What a wierd company). The benefits of “Ossan” rental are two-way, said Mr Nishimoto. “‘Ossan’ themselves also grow through this role. Either they gain more confidence, polish their image, or learn lessons in life from other people.”
