UPDATE: I missed the CNN International report from Hong Kong yesterday. I’ve added details from that below.

China’s censors are not amused at all by the video of a young couple having sex in a Uniqlo fitting room.

Beijing police have arrested five people in connection with the video, which went viral on Chinese social media last week. The five include the couple and three others, all but one unnamed by officials. Police have identified the bespectacled man in the video a 19-year-old university student, surnamed Sun.

This report (in Chinese), identifies the couple as two students at Beijing Art University, complete with their Sina Weibo handles, but not their real names.

The couple apparently made the video in April at a Beijing Uniqlo store, and shared it with their friends. One of the friends then shared it on Tencent’s WeChat, and it quickly went viral before censors pulled it off.

Police are also looking for the person who uploaded the video, and state authorities are admonishing officials of China’s two social media giants, Tencent and Sina, for allowing the video online, as well as investigating whether Uniqlo staff had any involvement.

Uniqlo, a major Japanese clothing brand, has denied it had anything to do with the 1m20s video. Some people have accused the company, or at least the Beijing outlet where the video was made, of using it as a publicity stunt.

Because people will flock to a family clothing store that allows sex in the fitting rooms.
