From Ginza to Times Square, from Tiananmen to Champs-Elysées, Han Bing and his cabbage have travelled the world.

Photo agency Europics claimed that teenagers photograghed at Beijing's Midi Music Festival "walking" cabbages on leashes were doing as a means to cope with loneliness and depression.

What do you make of this "weird" hebavior? Is this really a new teenage trend as Western media outlets reported  (they say it helps them deal with emotional issues) or just a publicity stunt to get attention for his art?

Western media just love doing that, making China look ugly.


But if it's a kind of performance art, will you follow suit and walk the cabbage?

Why is it always the cabbage? Would you walk the potato instead?
It's as ordinary and humble as most of us too.
