Beijing couple’s changing room video goes viral, censors busy

Speaking of censors, Google AdSense has requested the photograph which had accompanied this post be removed. So, I have complied. You can see a different version offsite here, however.

JISHOU, HUNAN — An adventurous Beijing couple filmed themselves Tuesday making love in a Uniqlo clothing store changing room, and posted the video to their social media accounts.

You can predict what happened next.

It went viral. And China’s censors have been working overtime trying to keep the 1m20s video off the Internet. Now that it’s on the BitTorrent network (where I found it), they have no hope of stamping it out.

The government has condemned the video as being contrary to “core socialist values,” which apparently preclude having sex in changing rooms, or posting sex videos, or something.

Meanwhile, Uniqlo, a Japanese clothing brand, has denied it played any role in promoting the video as a marketing ploy. It has raised its, um, visibility in the market, though.
