An incredibly awkward video has hit the Chinese internet starring a foreigner claiming to be an American English teacher in China, bragging about all his easy success with Chinese women.
“Hi, I’m an American,” the guy named “Jack” says in a distinctly not American (likely Polish) accent. “Now I’m teaching English in China, I’m so called ‘waijiao.'”
Jack tells the camera about how he lost his job as a farmer back in the US, but has since started a whole new life in China. “Everyone respects foreigners. People want to take pictures with us, and the key is that Chinese girls are pretty cute,” Jack explains. “They are so beautiful and they are really into foreigners, so it’s great.”
The “American” goes on to explain his tried-and-true method of picking up girls at bars. “It’s pretty easy. All you need to do is just sit there and wait and after some time I’m sure that some girl will approach you because that’s how it always was with me.”
“It’s pretty easy to get a girl here in China, especially for night one stands (sic),” Jack adds.
When the interviewer expresses his skepticism at this, we get to see Jack in action, sitting outside at a cafe. A hidden camera watches as four Chinese women approach him in succession, asking for his contact information and even snapping photos with him. The video claims that Jack has hooked with 200 Chinese women since he moved to China four years ago.
Bizarrely, the interview with Jack is conducted at night in the back of a vehicle with him wearing a banana-emblazoned face mask. Outside the vehicle, Jack’s face is blurred as if he’s a mob informant while he walks around in slow motion to Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles.”
On Miaopai, the embarrassing video has earned over 8 million views. While some Chinese netizens have expressed the usual disgust with foreign English teachers in China dating local women, others were simply revolted by the shamelessness of the video itself.
The video was shot by Taqu (Touch), a Chinese mobile app that markets low-price, high-quality sex toys online. Web users have slammed it as a moronic marketing gimmick and have ridiculed the company for not being able to find a real American to star in their promotion.

Well, we hope he at least got a decent paycheck out of this.
