Two men in Beijing last week were apprehended by security after running about Peking University’s campus in nothing but g-strings while carrying inflatable dolls and their guitars in some sort of “protest”. Witness the dedication, the struggle, and the revolution that ensued.
The two Peking University alumni, both independent music producers facing difficulties within the industry due to piracy problems, were attempting to raise awareness about copyright protection laws, according to Kotaku.
The “performance art” was meant to call attention to the issue because “holding an inflatable doll while streaking is eye-catching,” said one of the protesters.
The men wrote messages of protest on their chests and donned elephant-shaped man thongs as they set out that fateful day with their plastic dolls and humble guitars to the vast frontier that was Peking University’s north campus.
They even planned to jump into nearby Weiming Lake, all in the name of music.
Sadly, the two protesters were taken down by the man, the campus security guard man, before they had the chance to follow through with their plunge into the righteous waters of change.
The men escaped charges of indecency because they covered their junk with those elephant loin cloths.
When asked if they thought their leap into the Weiming Lake would be dangerous, one of the men replied, “We are able to swim, and the blow-up dolls are buoyant and could always be used as life preservers.”

Earlier this year, artist Li Binyuan pulled off a similar stunt when he was photographed running naked through the streets of Beijing with a blow up sex doll and later a giant cross in protest against clothing, or something.
