Hide Yo Kids, Hide Yo Wife, Shen Yun is Coming

    Do you live in ANY major city in the world and have working eyes and ears? If yes, you probably have come across Shen Yun.

    Shen Yun is a performing arts group founded in 2006 by Falun Fong practitioners, a religious practice that has been condemned and banned by the Chinese government. Their goal is to “to revive the lost world of traditional Chinese culture and share it with everyone,” according to their website. However, the performance has received criticism in the past that it also pushes their own political agenda.

    A critic once called the show in 2016 “a beautiful and odd production that veers wildly between two extremes: delicate artistic excellence on one hand and a brusque, heavy-handed effort to inculcate political and spiritual viewpoints on the other.”

    They literally have performances in every major city in the world (except on the continent of Africa and Antarctica, whats up with that!?).

    Despite the controversial nature of the production, their ads are literally EVERYWHERE.

    You CANNOT escape it.

    It’s gotten so bad that it’s become a popular meme, making it even harder to ignore it.

    CURSE YOU SHEN YUN! But hats off to your marketing team.
