The Chinese Police Stop Spartans From 300

The Chinese Police Stop Spartans from 300

Yesterday in Beijing, a group of men dressed as Spartans from 300 appeared in the Sanlitun shopping district for a publicity stunt. Then, the cops showed up and shut them down.

According to The Nanfang, the cosplayers were promoting a Beijing-based salad delivery service called Sweetie Salad and were going to different parts of the city.

When the Spartans got to Sanlitun, police repeatedly warned the PR warriors to stop because the publicity stunt was disturbing public order.

The cosplayers, apparently, did not, and People's Daily reports that the men were taken away and detained. Chinese news agency Xinhua, however, reports that the "near-naked foreigners" were "dispersed" by Beijing police.

Still trying to figure out why Sweetie Salad pulled this stunt. Because, tonight we dine in hell? Make that, jail.

    Yeah. Jail tonight. Dying only comes later, after your organs have been harvested by the government for wealthy individuals.

    THIS, IS, CHINAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!

    I'm laughing so hard and can't stop! That dude being sat on by a policeman, it's too much! And the most hilarious thing of all, dressing up as Spartans to promote a SALAD DELIVERY SERVICE... lol.

    Those foreigners are probably English teachers who were paid a few hundred RMB each. The very idea that they should defy police by refusing to disperse is ludicrous. These guys must have had rocks in their heads! My first rule in China was never argue with the police. Whenever a policeman or customs officer said I was doing or had done something wrong I just smiled and pleaded ignorance. Sure I had some porn confiscated but I didn't end up in gaol (thank God).

    I assume all the "factual" data from this article is from Xinhua and/or PeoplesDaily? It's a funny piece.. but those two papers are state owned.

    Haha, this is genius 1. Create a stunt for a business that will get you arrested and will make the news 2. From said news report, interest in your business will grow, and more customers will visit your business out of curiosity 3. Profit!!!
