Building off that old traditional theme that seems to be a trend, the marketing in Taiwan is both innovative, imaginative, and shocking to me. I spent several minutes in the MRT train station looking at this sign, trying to figure out the point... when I finally saw what this picture was, I actually took a step back in open-mouthed shock... this is surely something I would never see back in NY, but it is somewhat effective at... well... at getting attention I guess. ;)

Taiwan is certainly a land of paradox... on the surface conservative, but underneath, and in many different facets/areas, very surprisingly liberal. As for the ad, well, if a man-sized penis cannot stop AIDS, then I guess nothing can...!


  1. Hey Adam--like your posting style. Look forward to reading more Taiwanese cultural quirks

  2. Hey Rich -

    Glad you like the blog. It's been kind of a "Work in Process", that started mostly with me learning to carry my camera with me always so I can document those moments of "What the heck is that?"

    Heh heh...

    Anyway, I saw yours too - lots of cool video and what-not that I have no idea how to do. Some good reads too - I'll visit it more in the future.
