White People for Rent!


In China, companies are willing to pay lump sums in order to 'rent' caucasian actors to act as if they are part of their company or play business partners.

Bad idea, I don't feel lying to the public or deceiving people in general is ever the way to go. It's a very odd concept and I don't see how it is legal/acceptable. That being said, the Chinese do make very good business men, so who knows?
