After watching this week’s video, the first phrase came to my mind is “Shanzhai”, a prevalent culture phenomenon in China. There is no clear definition of Shanzhai. But one thing for sure, people who made shanzhai products “borrow” heavily from well-known brands. They gave their products similiar names to the original products and sell at an amazingly low prices. This phenomenon could also be found in movie industry, music industry and other creative industries. I just wanna use this short video to present a brief introduction to shanzhai. It’s closely related to the western “kitsch culture”. Now more and more scholars realized the value of kistch culture, I just think that maybe there is also a reason for shanzhai to exist.
