I'm learning Chinese (Mandrin or Cantonese I'm not sure)
I was standing in the dvd stall, when I heard “why you should by the gold dvd instead of the purple dvd” and I quoted it along with the dvd that was playing. The tv was facing the other way, and I couldn’t see the screen. But I’d heard that phrase so many times that I instantly knew the words. The funny thing is, that it was in Chinese. I don’t speak Chinese, but I’ve been watching so many pirated dvd’s recently that I know their campaign ad by heart. I guess I now know one Chinese phrase.
(P.S. the picture is taken in a market like the one I buy dvds from)
