You can buy essentially anything on Taobao, the slightly more difficult task is figuring out what in the world the things you bought are actually for. This week, the Mamahuhu crew has unveiled a new series titled, the Laowai Review, in which they try their best to discern the purpose of some strange and mysterious Chinese products.
The first product, a mouth muscle face lifter in the shape of some red lips, really throws off the three contestants who jump to the conclusion that it must be something sexual in nature. “Is it for practicing kissing,” asks Jorge. Meanwhile, Matthew thinks it might be some sort of feeding tool.
After being similarly stumped by another mouth muscle face lifter and stunned by an apparent “thong shirt,” the trio are then given one minute to pitch all three items in Mandarin back to Norah who proceeds to lecture them about their filthy (龌龊) minds. “Everything is an innuendo to you foreigners,” she says, giving them a 9 out of 100.
