Maybe is not a case of deceptive advertising, could be that you buy the car and you also get the ¨lady¨, the store can give some comission to the hookers for each car sold, and they have a better wage than working at the club... O_o
@BT, are u in China? How big Backyard would u want them to have? Like the one on ur profile?
If the one that buys a car gets one of those chicks to sit in and bring her home, the sell of VW would rise much more. It's another mktg strategy.
By the way, the quality of these pix is much more similar to the brand of cam I got, unlike that of Scott which got less pixels.
Mind the upholstery.
Hahahahaha ... I was kind of waiting for the continuous saga of camera discussion ...
Technically, it isn't a criminal offense, however, it isn't legal, as it violates the Law on the Penalty of Public Administration: "Art. 69, organizing or making obsecne performance (in the public) is subject to administrative detention of not more than 15 days but not less than 10 days and a pecuniary penalty of not more than CNY 1000 but not less than 500 CNY".
Additionally, if such a performance took place 6 months ago and no one reports it, the organizer will not need to assume any liability.
All in all, it is a bit complicated but you are right about the fact that business operators should be careful when they use such cheap and tedious marketing measures to attract attetion.
I feel sorry about Volkswagen, I was a big fan of a SUV they made until I watched Jude Law's "Repo Men". Who would put one's own car advertisement into a film like that? Bad choice.
Gentleman, your point with prejudices well taken. It isn't about harmony but basic knowledge of jurisprudence and law, there are specific criteria and composites for a criminal convinction, and a strict procedure to prosecute a crime. Most social irregularities are handled from administrative approach, not just in China.
The amount of pecuniary penalty is fixed based on the local economy and the consequence of violation. There is a principle of balance between "crime" and "punishment". To be frank, I think the consequence will be less serious without this Internet fuss.
An administrative penalty can be quite severe as the penalty decision will be docketed, the business operator or the organizer will be recorded in a credit record shared with commercial banks and government agencies. If you have read carefully, it is a "double penalties" with detention.
Based on your premise, although Chinese lawyers are rare breed, twisted western liberal whinging worms are everywhere. Check the western history of criminal prosecution then, you are not clean either.
We lock them up, you whinge, we let them be, you whinge still, exactly what is going on in your mind?
