Check out this chaotic scene in Shangluo city, Shaanxi province, where people began to furiously scramble after the free tofu on offer, requiring the host to threaten people with a cleaver to bring them under control.
A local government in Shaanxi decided to hold a trade fair in the north of Xian to promote local agricultural produce. The most anticipated item at the event was this block of tofu.
The tofu took three days to make and weighed around one tonne. Everybody waited patiently for the host to finish giving his introductory speech, then all hell broke loose.
Owing to the nature of the crowd, who weren’t going to let anything come between them and free tofu, the host resorted to threatening people with his cleaver, eventually restoring order.
Just like the rest of us, the Chinese love a freebie. Watch these shoppers go crazy fighting over free shampoo!
