Above, you can see a warning for the site, telling people not to look at it too long. That's popstar Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, whom Kotaku has featured a few times before (here, here, and here).

The warning actually pops up after the site is opened for less than a minute.

"Kind of them to give us a warning," wrote one commenter on 2ch, Japan's largest online forum. "I feel like I'm gonna barf," added another.

KFC shouldn't make you barf! Neither should these Krushers! Though, this might be the first fast food website that actually makes people truly ill.

Here is the KFC commercial that the website is based on. This is part of KFC's "kurakura" (クラクラ) campaign. In Japanese, "kurakura" can mean "dizzy" or "giddy". Here, it's used in a wordplay, because "Krushers" is written as "Kurasshaazu" (クラッシャーズ) in Japanese.
