Every single product bought in a supermarket in Shinagawa, Tokyo, today has had its price read out loud one by one by the checkout clerk.

“89, 267, 35, 164, 129, 78, 310, 174, 184, 133, 162, 191, 77, 467, 120, 78, 67, 78, 78, 78, 78, 78, 175, 155, 149, 139, 639, 144, 37, 189, 275, 288, 149, 167,” said the clerk.

“76, 498, 84, 59, 29, 846, 63, 184, 185, 128, 163, 191, 738, 141, 85, 284,” the clerk added.

The clerk was forced to read out “seventy-eight” five times in a row as the customer wanted to purchase five 600ml bottles of Coca-Cola valued at 78 yen each.

“After I heard the price of the third item the rest of the numbers all became a bit of a blur,” said 28-year-old Matthew Hummer.

“I was too busy thinking about if the clerk possessed the nerves of steel it requires to ask if I have a point card.”
