Culture in the Ads

To dig deeper in the culture, you will also see that the ads show the pop culture of young people in China: “屌丝” (literally penis thread, Diaos, or Diao Si Culture). With the big gap between rich and poor people, those poor netizens labeled themselves short, poor and ugly. And it echoes in many people’s heart. And this year, the new trend of this culture is to fight for a better life, which is also called the “counter attack of Diaos”. And those ads just made in the right time.

    I was most impressed “with this potato chip you are the king” because it is exactly the kind of marketing/advertising from young professionals that our company will use to promote our product once our factory is operational. I realize my project will not interest you but perhaps you might know investors who would recognize the unlimited potential it represents. I want to build a potato chip factory in Beijing and are in the process of seeking investors. My management team has over 50 years experience in potato chip production including development of a pilot potato chip factory in Sichuan Province. All details and financials are available upon request. I will pay a US$100,000 fee to anyone who can source the funding for this project.
