Middle Finger Candle

Middle Finger Candle

Flicking someone off. Flipping the bird. Giving the finger. There are many different ways to describe the gesture commonly associated with the phrases “fuck you” and/or “fuck off,” but none are quite as satisfying as actually doing it. While it used to be relegated to jerks in cabs, assholes in bars and random people on the streets, the middle finger is now a design/lighting element that you can proudly display in your living room thanks to Brooklyn-based Japanese artist Nao Matsumoto. Originally created for a protest of the use of nuclear energy in Japan (on the 1 year anniversary of the tsunami), a portion of the proceeds is still getting donated to other worthy causes of the artist’s choosing. Now you can give everyone that walks into your place the finger and still feel good about it.
