This Dignity-Saving Plunger Fits in Your Pocket

The details behind this video are pretty murky, but it's made by what appears to be a Korean company sitting is on the cutting edge of restroom innovations. We're not exactly comfortable with any part of this video, but it's got our fascination running. Don't turn away.

The plunger is apparently called "Bbungtu," a single-use device that's foldable and portable, small enough to keep it in your back pocket for when you clog things up at your girlfriend's parent's dinner party. It's the ultimate emergency dignity-saver. 

Besides the plunger, these mysterious Korean geniuses at Seungil — the shadowy manufacturer — have made a device for grabbing stuck items that fall in and get flushed.

We will take one of everything, please.
