The Awkward Moment When China Doesn’t Translate Your Poster

About 12 months ago I posted a spoof poster advertising/mocking the iPhone 5 (original post here)



I actually liked the art direction of the poster, using the apple logo within the number 5 is a neat touch I feel. I went with the slightly sarcastic (yet somewhat true) strapline of “Because you have more money than sense” – my little dig at apple fanboys who just can’t help but snap up the latest apple goodies.

Overall I was happy with the design, it was a bit of a laugh and I re-shared it earlier this month when the phone was actually released. I thought that would be it, just another portfolio piece done.

So Imagine my surprise when my friend texts me to say that Sabotage Times had posted a photo to their Facebook account showing an apple retailer in China that was proudly displaying my poster in their shop window:




I have no idea where or when the photo was taken – I’d love to find out though.

Obviously my sarcasm doesn’t translate well in the far east.

According to them, avoiding the horrors of the past, which he teaches. So in the Holy Sacrament of Reconciliation, the holy confession condition for absolution deeply remorseful soul. At the end of the confession the priest says:
