Incredible ... an advertising campaign showing everyday people ... is condemned by everyday people. If it only showed the glittery side of life, then these same people would whine that it shows only the rich, corrupt side of China. You can't win for losing, it seems.

Oh, and why does everything have to be "about China", or "insulting China". The author tries to make it sound like the advertising campaign was deliberately made to slight "China".

Chinese brands cannot match Western brands so what enjoy your counterfeits

Agree. That's why China needs to develop its own domestic fashion industry and promote its own homegrown brands. Brazil is a good example of a developing country that has its own domestic fashion industry which has produced the world's top fashion models. If Brazil can do it, then why can't China?

Utter guff. You will see plenty of Chinese brands using similar comparative styles in their ads. B ...

I was not condemning the ad but merely pointing out the irony of Chinese consumers getting offended by ads targeted at Chinese consumers to buy WESTERN brands. The ads were designed to elicit an emotional response from Chinese consumers by portraying the WESTERN brand as something befitting urban sophisticates in contrast to migrant workers toiling in the Big City. But why should Chinese consumers even bother with WESTERN brands when there are lots of CHINESE brands to choose from? They should be offended more by the fact that Chinese consumers spend way too much much money on WESTERN brands.

Now Chinese culture gets into trouble, Chinese culture is no thinking outside the box nothing orginal is allowed  copying other people from the West and call it your own orginal idea. The inability to face the truth and take constructive criticism
With a copy culture and an avoidance of the truth I see a lot of Chinese brands going nowhere

Your post does not make sense. Chinese garment factories churn out lots of clothes which are exported to the world under Western brands. The reason why Chinese entrepreneurs sell fake Western brands is because they don't have the resources to  build global brands which requires massive capital to promote, market and support all over the world. But Brazil has done it in Brazil. And so can Chinese entrepreneurs by catering to the huge domestic demand for all kinds of branded apparel: luxury, leisure, fast casual, sportswear, etc.
