Advertising and Marketing

A new ad campaign for Xinhua?


Xinhua has posted an image on their website that would make a good ad campaign for the state-owned news agency. Bearing in mind their current babe fixation, 'stop thinking and look at the hot chick' would be an excellent campaign concept. 'XS' also stands for Xinhua She, the Chinese name of the news agency.

The ad is actually part of a collection of erotic perfume advertisements, which you can find on Xinhua here.
