Japanese Twitter user @02ESyRaez4VhR2l instantly gained Internet fame a few months ago when they masterfully transformed a used tube of Pringles into the spitting image of mascot character Julius Pringles.

It was not long before the company sent them a package containing several cans of Pringles potato chips as thanks. But as they were a professional paper crafter, their instinct drove them to twist and fold the packages into a troupe of suit-wearing gentlemen.

Each figure took approximately six painstaking hours to craft, but the end result was nothing short of amazing.

Their skills are not only limited to making humanoid figures. They have worked laboriously on various projects that range from intricate vehicles to marvelous buildings ever since.

▼ They even made a cool fighter airplane in one and a half hours using just an empty box of Oreo cookies.

▼ We see snack boxes as mere packaging, but to them it’s gorgeous artwork waiting to be created.

Japanese netizens were fascinated by the talent and perseverance:

“That Pringles group kinda looks like Arashi.”

“These are all fantastic. I aspire to be like you, but I have no idea how to even start.”

“You are truly a genius!”

“Wonderful! My father and I are eagerly waiting for your next artwork.”

“You have my utmost respect.”

Although @02ESyRaez4VhR2l is not the first one to create impressive art pieces out of snack boxes — others have also done the same — none have come close to this level of polish and gorgeousness. Honestly, we cannot wait for them to churn out yet another magnificent piece to blow us all away again.
