Comical panda ad reminds Chinese tourists not to behave badly

    by -

    What appears to be a comical advertisement about pandas behaving badly overseas is actually a public service announcement by Chinese state TV station CCTV to remind Chinese tourists to be on their best behavior.

    Filmed mainly at Sydney Harbour, the ad depicts the pandas engaging in a number of inconsiderate and rude behaviors such as peeing in public, vandalising and littering — to the annoyance of other visitors. The message at the closing of the ad reminds Chinese tourists to “be a good panda, be a good tourist”. However, the ad has since been pulled from CCTV for unknown reasons.

    According to news.com.au, 685,000 Chinese tourists visited Australia, accounting for the second largest group of visitors to Australia in 2013.
