China Erects Lewd Skyscraper (VIDEO)
If "Anything's a dildo if you're brave enough." has always been your motto, you may want to reconsider it now. A Chinese company had a bit of a cock-up and constructed a giant phallic tower in Guangxi. It's definitely a dick move on the part of whoever designed this thing - how could they not see it? No one's that oblivious, right?
The offending skyscraper is called the Guangxi New Media Centre and is located in the autonomous region of Guangxi in south-eastern China near the border with Vietnam. It took them about two years to build so far, and you'd really think someone would have noticed the likeness and spoken up during that time.
The designers and the builders may not have noticed, but the locals sure did. In fact, a big part of the reason the images of this structure have gone viral lately is a cleverly-edited video posted on social media in China, which shows fireworks shooting out of the top of the structure.
The 14-second video shows the building from above with pulsating lights and whimsical colorful fireworks blasting out from the tip. A Guangxi Broadcasting and Television Network Company spokesperson has confirmed that the video is fake, but the damage is done, and the building is being ridiculed around the world.
It's a bit of a shame, really, because there was thought put into the design. It was supposed to resemble the terraced landscapes for which the Guangxi province is known. It's surely an interesting design, but it definitely could've been better executed. Literally any other shape would've worked better than this!
So what do you think? Are people making a fuss over nothing or is this building actually quite obscene?
