Make the change that will change your life

This is an online ad campaign using Hao Lulu - Miss Plastic Surgery 2003 - to promote 'medical beauty enhancement services' by Evercare Medical Institution.


Last year Hao Lulu had head-to-toe plastic surgery as a publicity stunt for Evercare. It seems to have worked. Below the tagline 'Make the change that will change your life' is a list of media organizations that wrote about Hao's operations. They range from CNN to That's Beijing.

Here is the Evercare / Hao Lulu promotional site (in Chinese). A Brainysmurf post about the affair is here, and there is more about it on here.
