The Hanging Banker Of China

by | 29th, October 2008

THIS is the advert on the side of the Yinji Shopping Mall in Zhengzhou, China.  A mannequin is hanging from the top of the billboard.

Says the legend:

“It’s better to invest money here than put it into the stock market.”

Jiang Chengpu, the creative director behind the ad, says:

“We are making fun of the depressing stock market here. And the place the mannequin is hanging is right next to the stock index line”

But why not use a real banker – they need the work..?
