    its a clever marketing tactic that has been used by chinese businessmen for a long time to make the locals think they are buying a foreign product and hence pay a premium. they come up with a foreign brand name e.g. "pierre giordan, paris", put up a picture of "pierre giordan" (some western model) to make it look legitimate and then do a marketing campaign around that.

    since the introduction of the internet as a marketing channel, this has obviously become even easier.

    i hope someone can step forward and vouch that they've met you in the flesh and that you actually exist

        i am well aware of that particular practise.

        however, this lucky fella has met me:

        he (mistakenly) described me as a cross between gordon ramsay and steptoe.

        i'm not sure where the steptoe bit came from. maybe cos i was dressed for dirty work when i delivered his lathe.

        but it really should have been someone like brad pitt on account of my devilishly good looks...

        anyway, i exist.

        end of.

            If you want to play the pink, but you're hampered by the red, you could always try to play the brown!
