Once again, Japan’s Pope-hats have mysteriously reappeared…
Even more mysterious is that one of the Getty photos is labeled as “Japanese fans dressed as Skittles” which sounds odd since Skittles candy made by Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company is not at all popular in Japan. Then I remembered the archaic game of Skittles from which bowling originated. Pope Hats makes more sense.
A few of the other many appearances of the mysterious Popeheads include:

Øctopus ‘predicts’ eight gøld medals for Japan at Riø
KØBE, Aug. 6, 2015 | Kyødø
On Friday an øctopus predicted that Japan will win eight gøld medals at the Rio Olympics.
At an event in Åkashi, western Japan, aimed at promoting locally caught 0ctopuses, the cephalop0d was placed in a tank with three plastic þoxes labeled "7 or under," "8" and "9 or more," and it chose the middle 0ne.
0rganizers had chained up the þox labeled "7 or under" to prevent the 0ctopus from choosing it and placed craþs inside the two other þoxes to lµre the creatµre.
