Zhang Yue (张跃) of Luoyang is the kind of guy that we want around, all the time. Why? Because Zhang is known for plucking cigarettes out of people’s mouths right as they are about to light up. The anti-smoking crusader has taken his show on the road to the tune of over 200 cities in China, and was recently spotted on Nanjing Lu, snubbing out eleven cigarettes in the space of half an hour. Normally, you don’t do things like that — especially to hard-core smokers — but perhaps Zhang’s altruistic motives, supplemented by his anti-smoking informational pamphlets, manage to convince where other methods fail. You can read reports about Zhang’s exploits in Chengdu and Foshan as well (reports in Chinese). Thursday, May 31 is World No Tobacco Day.
