A crowd of 30 middle-aged folk were spotted dancing to the ever-popular (now ever-irritating) “Xiao Pingguo” at a plaza in Chongqing while holding up cardboard cutouts of the new iPhone 6, urging their fellow people be conscious and rational when purchasing the latest Apple product, according to China News.
A 55-year-old participant named Liu Kunwei said he joined the dance troop at the plaza after watching the widely spread video of Chinese grannies queuing to buy the iPhone 6 in New York. The elderly people were seen sleeping on the ground and even getting into physical disputes with cops just to get their hands on the new device (to pass off to others).
Liu warned the public to “Be a rational consumer and not to fawn over foreign products.”
