Chinese Professor on U.S.A. “… so now they work for us.”

The ad called “Chinese Professor,” is set in “Beijing, China 2030 AD.” It shows a lecture hall with a professor speaking in Chinese. The students carry futuristic tablets that make the iPad look clunky. The ad contains subtitles and starts with the professor asking, in Chinese, “Why do great nations fail? The Ancient Greeks…the Roman Empire…the British Empire…and the United States of America.” Students gaze up at a holographic screen that shows images of the four superpowers. “They all make the same mistakes, turning their back on the principles that made them great,” continues the professor. He goes on to say that America tried to “tax and spend” its way out of a recession, including a health-care overhaul — all of which led to massive debt. “Of course, we owned most of their debt,” he says with a laugh, “so now they work for us.” Cue audience laughter.
