Sexy Spartan cosplayers arrested by Beijing police during viral marketing stunt – TomoNews
BEIJING — This isn’t Sparta! Several photos of a bungled viral promotion event have started bouncing around the Chinese internet. On Wednesday, a Beijing salad shop hired a gaggle of foreign hunks to promote their wares, but neglected to inform their imperial overlords in the government.
The whole group was arrested for “disturbing social order” according to official state news outlet, Xinhua.
Sweety Salad, purveyors of salad in a cup, hired several dozen guys to dress like Spartans. The Greek vegetarians then marched around Beijing’s Sanlitun district, to the delight of all.
All, except their Communist masters, who were unnerved by the sight of 3,000 year old freedom fighters marching in formation. Groups independent of the Chinese Communist Party are strictly banned, be they Tibetans, Catholics… or Spartans! That’s why there’s a Beijing approved Dalai Lama, and a Beijing approved Archbishop, but no Beijing approved Leonidas!
The hapless Spartans were cornered by Persian… er, I mean, Beijing police, and apprehended. The Communists might have won this round, but now the people know, you can’t keep our salad down! That wasn’t meant to be a knock on the quality of the salad. We’ve got no idea whether it’s any good.
