You may not be familiar with the term Kabe-don, but chances are you’ve seen the pose in movies, TV shows, comic books and animation. It’s the way tough guys show their love, by pinning the object of their affection up against the wall using arms or legs or both, and kabe-don poses are an internet sensation in Japan.
People love to stage pictures of themselves posing kabe-don style with a pet or loved one, or else they create wacked out illustrated versions of the pose which would be impossible to do in real life.
They also love adding a bit of wordplay to the pose phenomenon, changing words like gyudon (a type of beef bowl) into a bull posing kabe-don style over his intended "victim". And don’t forget Neko-don, kitty style kabe-don pics which are all the rage because, you know, the internet.
