Stroll Down One Of The Fakest Streets In China

Stroll Down One of the Fakest Streets in China

H&N? Hugo BGSS? And SFFCCCKS Coffee? Welcome to Wuxi city, which might be home of the phoniest shopping street in all of China.

The signs are located on a shopping street at Shimao Skyscrapers. Instead of Apple, there's "Appla". Instead of Zara, there's "Zare". H&M is "H&N". These don't appear to be actual shops (though, they could be!), but rather, logos and facades for the building complex — kind of like a movie set.

The photos below have been circulating online in China recently.

Nothing is safe! As website HugChina points out, even China's largest bank is knocked off with a fake sign.

According to Jeremy Blum at South China Morning Post, these are pre-made signs for empty shops in hopes of creating potential buyers. However, online in China, the street has become an object of ridicule. Some call the signs "misleading" and "infringement", and are asking for the practice to stop.

    Why sffcccks?

      Who knows. I must admit though I thought it said something entirely different at first glance

      Because the most powerful name you can have for any store has to be reminiscent of "Stiff Cocks"

    Shop at stiff cocks coffee!

      "We go hard out to find you the best quality ingredients! We don't dick about when it comes to coffee! So rock your cock up today and grab a cup!" ...Shit, I really need to get into advertising.

    Mmmmm offee. Better than coffee. I think their counterfeit 'C' fell down.

    They aren't real shops? Awww... I wanted to try one of their Grandddfhhhd Latteyrysfks..
