bowing to traffic
As I was biking home from shopping, I happened to notice this at the intersection near my apartment:
Ok, so I've seen all kinds of people out on the streets (in front of electronics stores), and in stores dancing around to songs (Homeplus!) to advertise their businesses. And some places like to have people outside directing traffic and bowing (Lotte). But there's only one reason I've seen human advertisements at intersections bowing, etc. Elections, or as Koreans sometimes say, erections! My favourite is when they're being driven around in bongo trucks while music is being played. No better way to get people to vote for you! I don't see why male candidates only seem to have females lined up doing dance routines though... ok, I do, but come on.
