(Newser) – A South Korean man’s dream came true recently when he married a body pillow bearing an illustration of an anime character. Lee Jin-gyu, 28, fell for a dakimakura, or body pillow, printed with an image of Fate Testarossa, a character in a popular cartoon series, the UK Metro reports. “When he goes out to eat he takes it with him and it gets its own seat and its own meal,” says an acquaintance. The video above shows the couple on a big day out.

If all this sounds awfully familiar, click here to see some behind-the-scenes footage of James Franco and the body pillow his character had a fling with on a recent episode of 30 Rock.
