On Singles’ Day, two semi-naked ladies were photographed lying on a table with sushi sprawled across their bodies at a Changchun mall. Tencent News takes an investigative look.
Some people chose to put their dignity on the line ahead of the unofficial holiday to show that they don’t care about being alone on 11/11. But not these ladies, because only the cooks were allowed to touch them as they lie half-naked on the dining tables.
Crowds were kept at a respectable distance to stand and gawk, as with most family-friendly, mall-sponsored nude events.
The publicity stunt attracted onlookers who whipped out their smart phones to take photos and share them online.
As with many semi-nude publicity stunts in China, we don’t really know what it was trying to promote. Not like anyone really cared.
