Why is this little girl so sad?
I bought this at 7-11 in Beijing because the packaging tickled me. I really want to know what product could possibly be using a crying, abused child as their advertisement. Because I'm in China now, buying this item did not represent a large financial risk (I think they may have paid me to take it).
The contents felt dry and crunchy through the package, so I thought it might be rice cakes. That would make sense, because rice cakes are a snack that a child might reasonably be distraught to be given.
But then I opened it, and it was instant ramen! Who in their right mind would be miserable if they were full of ramen? She obviously doesn't know how good she's got it.
