FAST FIVE: Revealing The Naked Truth Of China's Real Estate Slowdown
As for “swimming naked when the tide goes out,” well, it seems like one real estate firm, in southwest China used topless models covered in body paint as a last-ditch effort to unload a new property development before the market implodes.
Floor plans of the condos were painted on the back of each model, and their breasts were painted with logos and other advertising slogans.
While it is unclear if the topless models helped to spur sales, Asia Times indicated that the stunt attracted many people to the showroom last Friday.
An employee at Nanning Weirun told the website Btime.com that the bodypainting promotion was a one-off event to drive sales.
