oriental virgin

Take a look at this logo photographed by John at Sinosplice from the side of a Shanghai construction site:

Oriental Virgin. Brilliant. I won't even make the jokes. John points out that this sign, aside from being hilarious, is an obvious knock-off of the Sony Ericsson logo. Clever marketing, Chinese company.

Writes John:

Apparently the recipe for their English name and logo went something like this:

    1. Take a successful foreign company’s name and add “Oriental” to the front. Base the Chinese name on the English name.
    2. Copy the logo of a different company, altering it a bit.

Everyone knows Chinese companies never steal the ideas of others or anything dastardly like that. This must be the rare exception to the rule.

Lot's of good stuff here, but it seems that there is really only one person contributing.

So true. Zach is on spring break, so it's pretty much my show.
