News, but not the serious kind
Hey, you missed a spot by the Porsche!
Okay people, as you know, our exhibit at the Shanghai Auto Show is all about glamor and luxury. Class, sumptuousness and style. Lamar, you were in charge of our display, let’s see what you’ve come up with.
The cars look great, gorgeous models in sexy dresses and shoes, and… Um, Lamar?
There seem to be people cleaning the floor next to our display. Some with brooms, some down on their hands and knees. What’s that about?
That was my idea, Boss. I thought it would underscore the luxury more if there were people doing menial labor nearby.
You know Boss, it will kind of remind our customers they can afford something those other workers can’t have.
Boss, it’s only China. What’re they gonna do, have a revolution?
