China Bans Nike Commercial as Insult to National Dignity

thumb.cda10412050313.raptors_cavaliers_cda104 From the Associated Press, via Washington Post: “China banned a television commercial showing LeBron James battling a cartoon kung fu master, saying the ad insults national dignity.

The commercial, titled ‘Chamber of Fear,’ was broadcast on local Chinese stations and on state television’s national sports channel before being pulled last month. It shows James, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ reigning NBA rookie of the year, defeating the kung fu master, two women in traditional Chinese attire and a pair of dragons, considered a sacred symbol in traditional Chinese culture. ”
