It’s been a while since a Journey to the West character has been spotted around town doing ordinary things among citizens (and making children cry), but four men dressed as characters from the classic Chinese novel-turned-box office franchise were seen parading through the streets last Saturday advocating environmental protection. Whatever’ gets the masses attention, we suppose.
These four guys were actually environmental volunteers. They sweat it out under costumes so as to promote a cleaner environment. During their parade, the masked vigilantes marched through the streets with a stage prop white horse while stabbing at pieces of trash and ridding of them in bins with their “weapons” (plastic tongs). They wanted to live up to the “everyone has the responsibility to protect the environment” idea.
We hope it catches on.
