Ever wondered how powerful China will be in 20 years? Well the American campaign group Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) has recently produced a ‘chilling’ campaign commercial that portrays a future with China as the new superpower.
The aim of the video is to strike fear into American citizens. It shows a Global Economics (全球经济学 – Quánqiú Jīngjìxué) class set in Beijing (but is in fact filmed in the States) in the year 2030.
The ‘Chinese Professor’ tells his class of the supposed errors from the US government in dealing with its economy.
In the proposed future, America fails to solve its economic problems and the video ends with the Professor turning to his class and quipping the fear inducing line ‘So now they work for us!’.
What do you think of this ad? Does the film portray China fairly?
Here is Taiwanese-based Next Media Animation’s amusing video response:
