:shock: --I cannot believe they actually did that. Or, I do not understand, anyway.
Of course, sure looks like exactly that. Especially since the pic includes the image of Hsu Sheng-hsiung; I imagine that somehow this mix of “don’t!,” with Chen and an electronics maven–all in some kind of Star Trek leather, is that a brunette 7 of 9 I see?–sums up as “makes complete sense” to Taiwanese. After all, many Internet pornographers do feature dildos in their content, some dildos require batteries, leather is obviously western-decadent, ipso facto let’s get some. Wait! …ipso facto bad! Just say no!
:?: :!: :?:
Or maybe this is just the best “coaliton” Chen could come up with? Not a pc-industry rep, but a battery maven… hey, we gotta deadline here. ??
Complete “wtf?” stuff. I didn’t see the paper today, thanks for the link. Holy moly.
I guess I am just totally “western” but this kind of thing, added to the infomercial that’s currently playing on Nan Taoyuan CATV (I have deduced that it’s a Chinese-medicine alternative to Viagra–the infomercial is complete with a husband who calls over his wife to check out his off-screen risin’ [they both get wide-eyed and smile as if their pet dog suddenly got up on its back legs, put its front paws over its nose and too-cutely begged for a little attention] and, in case you as the viewer haven’t caught on yet, a completely subtlety-free image of a steel piston being forged as another Chinese actor actually peels away his undies, looks down, feigns shock while the mc chatters away–I can’t tell the difference between a run-of-the-mill Carrefour store produce hawker and this mc–and looks down with a mix of pride and wonder, mostly tearin’-up, wet-eyed, sadly grateful pride) makes me think that E v W ain’t just some kinda culture gap that can be overcome anytime real soon.
