The “Chinese Professor” advertisement has been playing throughout the United States for the past several weeks, terrifying viewers with images of a post-America world dominated by portraits of Chairman Mao and cackling university instructors.
The advertisement originally aired in 2010, was reanimated for the 2012 American presidential race, and now continues to haunt television post-election. Citizens Against Government Waste, the organization responsible for the advertisement, has a lackluster website and phone number of 1-800-BE-ANGRY. Nevertheless, the quality of their (intentionally inflammatory) video is rather stunning.
