NEW CAMPAIGN INFORMS CITIZENS ON FOREIGN EXPRESSIONS


Nanjing, CHINA – A recent series of public posters hopes to bolster the average Chinese person’s understanding of foreign emotions through the study of common facial expressions. The posters, which are a project of a local magazine, display eight “faces,” each meant to represent a particular feeling, attitude, or intention, all of which have been judged to be standard. These include – but are not limited to – angry arrogance, indifferent arrogance, planning-to-bomb-you arrogance, and petulant arrogance. A spokesperson for the magazine divulged that due to financial restrictions, they were unable to hire a foreigner to pose for the shots, and instead relied on stock footage from Google Images.
