The PR department at Chimelong Water Park in Guangzhou are proving themselves adept at media-friendly stunts. Previously seen arranging thousands of bikini-clad women into the shape of ‘2013’ the park held an underwater kissing competition this weekend.
The competition was held on July 6, which is, according to People’s Daily, ‘International Kissing Day’, an event so made-up that there isn’t even a Wikipedia page for it.
The winning couple, a Mr Zhang and a Miss Lin, kissed for 57 seconds underwater. Reports are unclear as to what the couple’s prize was, apart from getting wet.
