As we slowly start to approach the summer olympics, everyone seems to be using this occasion as their own personal advertising playground. This isn’t new but the fact that the events are going to be held in China has not helped anything. China has saw fit to turn the Olympics into a strong marketing campaign for China, but still manages to suppress human rights, contradictory to what they have promised. I’m not a human rights activist. I just wish that the games were the focus of the Olympics and not the propaganda. How far is the quest for a profit going to go before anyone starts to forget that these competitors have trained their whole lives to fight for their pride?

Politics and economics aside, I’m glad that these Olympic games have sparked creativity and innovation.

This is my favorite. Be the envy of the Joy Luck Club with this mah jong set. If you can swallow the idea of how much you paid for this item, you might actually feel saucy enough to play with it with your friends.

    this is an interesting observation. Nike’s Air Jordan Brand, the premium Jordan inspired brand of global giant also released a special “Chinese” Air Jordan 1 package to appeal to the large market. It will be interesting to see how advertising and branding changes as more of the world pays attention to a unique culture that has also contributed a great deal to modern civilization.
