There may be no better space to advertise than one where you are guaranteed to have thousands of eyes constantly staring at every day of the year.  Unlike most blatant examples of commercialization, I have to say this one actually blends favorably with the environs, especially with the cloudy Shanghai skies.

By the way, the Gumbyesque character appearing to the right of the electronic board and on the board of the last two pictures is Haibao, the now ubiquitous mascot of Shanghai World Expo 2010

    I think I am typically more economically free than most people who are like me and in my age group, but this seems a little ridiculous to me. In the end I must say if you’re getting the business more power to you?!

    Volkswagen Shanghai deserves a mention for this outdoor campaign to promote its latest model La Vida through a flying electronic video lightship. 😉 Saw it in both Shanghai and Suzhou last year.. i believe it toured around the country.

    I like your website of “how to order chinese food dot com”.It is very good.
    But some chinese character is not correct.“干扁豆角”should be 干煸豆角;“鸡抓”should be “鸡爪”.
