With the work day finally over, a man and his girlfriend decide to spend the waking moments perusing over items of clothing. When they arrive at Taikoo Li Sanlitun, Beijing, the sharply attired Uniqlo building catches their eyes.
It will be the perfect place, the man thinks to himself.
Inside, the girlfriend quickly looks over a few racks of clothing and selects a couple of items. The man takes some more without looking. They make their way to the changing rooms.
At the entrance, the attendant nods and lets them through. Instead of occupying two separate cubicles, the couple decides to use one.
The curtain is drawn and panties are dropped.
If this sounds like something out of a porn film, that’s because it is. It’s the second scene in that movie you watched last night after your partner fell asleep.
Or maybe that’s just me.
Yesterday, this exact scene was played out for real with the only difference being the man decided to whip out his ever-handy smartphone and hit record.
It somehow leaked out and made its way onto social platforms where privacy is of the utmost importance. Unfortunately, we here at TWOC cannot host such content on our website, but there are places you can find it—such as here. Warning: it’s NSFW; think late night soft-core.
Though there have been accusations made as to who the individuals are, their true identities still remain a mystery, with Weibo posts being deleted and modified every second. There have even been claims that a Wechat message history has been leaked, with the starlet telling her friend that they are not a couple and the friend berating her for allowing the man to film them.
Conspiracy theorists suggest that maybe this is all just an elaborate marketing scheme orchestrated by Uniqlo themselves. But with concerned citizens now questioning the sanctity of their changing rooms, will it actually increase sales?
So what’s next for the adventurous couple? The bathroom stall in a Peking Duck restaurant? Or maybe in an empty subway train carriage? Leave your suggestions in the comments below.
