Fake Street


A whole street of fake shops is opening in Wen An Jie in Nanjing, China. To avoid litigation, the names have been changed: Starbucks becomes Bucksstar, Pizza Hut, Pizza Huh, Haagen Dazs, Haagon-Bozs, 7-Eleven, 1-Eleven, McDonald's, McDnoald's, Watsons, Watons etc!

Er are they selling stuff or is it merely an "art" pastiche? If they are selling, I think you should invest!

Hi KL - I think they're selling Chinese lattes, burgers, pizzas etc. Not sure who's the property developer.

What's a Chinese pizza? Is it made with crispy fried duck?

I guess it makes money, which is the whole objective.

Probably, KL - any sweet and sour topping you like or chicken feet

I'm trying to find out, Ellee!

My son (8 year old) would not eat 'made in China' milk chocolate biscult or sweets, as he heard about 'fake milk' last time.
Heard Chines/Thai salesman saying: 'buy it, buy it--look, very real fake! Very real!'
