The Chinese government issued a new set of tough guidelines that are bound to radically change advertising in the country.

According to People’s Daily, The Nanfang, and Qingdao News, the new advertising rules do things like ban child celebrities under the age of ten from doing endorsements, under the rationale that these young celebs cannot make decisions independently (i.e., adults might be making decisions for them). Fair enough!

The Nanfang adds that a handful of words, such as “best” or “most popular,” are also banned. Other phrases like “country’s top,” “international standards,” and even “recommended by Chinese leaders” cannot be used.

Celebrities also must be able to use the products that they endorse. People’s Daily, the official paper of the country’s Communist party, explains that this means male celebs, for example, cannot endorse “feminine products like tampons.”

The Nanfang and Qingdao News point to Taiwanese singer and actor Jiro Wang who appeared in Freemore maxi pad advertisements and commercials.

Of course men can use them! Maybe not for the intended purpose, but they might be great for sealing an open bottle of wine... as earplugs for a quiet time... plugging a keyhole to stop drafts.... I'm sure there are many more uses.

As for the pads which are shown in the pics, well, those are probably great for mopping up spilled beer, doing an automobile oil change... Laughing

Msidoh, is there something you're not telling us. Bottles of wine, spilled beer (although why you'd spill your beer is anyone's guess).
Allegedly though, Nico Rosberg uses a feminine pad inside his crash helmet to absorb sweat to prevent it running into his eyes while racing!!!

Of course, I had to look that up... and here it is:

Briliant! Fortunately, I was only drinking coke when I saw that, so I didn't spill any more beer. Wink

+1 for the entertainment value!

in the words of the late great Paul Harvey...


"For what it's worth" The good news is the pads were new and not used " and now folks you have the rest of the story !!" "Paul Harvey ... Good day."
