Social Media Influencers in China no longer Promote cool things. Instead, they choose Russian Produce!
A marketing campaign created to help fill the void in the Russian consumption after being hammered by sanctions...
There aren’t many to choose from, but as of late whenever somebody wants to scroll through Chinese social media they are bombarded with new marketing videos urging residents to buy imported Russia produce.
“Russian beef, fish, and other grains are all pure green. They are mostly imported into China. They are very delicious. Especially the whole wheat bread is quite good. I have been to Russia in 1991, and the bread and sausages are delicious.”
Says one influencer
There is a video that follows as well of Putin in what seems to be a wheat field with another man as a strange and questionable image of Australia’s PM Scott Morrision comes to the screen.
Oh you think it’s over?!
There has been another video posted by the social media influencers of Russians rolling around in grain. A blonde girl specifically runs through the fields of produce followed by stock images of freshly baked bread. It seems that Russia and China have pulled Minecraft clips to market with…
A voice then promotes the health benefits that comes from Russian wheat and the purity of all the produce. They probably reference how big the bears get from grazing on it.
It isn’t clear who started the bullshit campaign but one social media analyst told a state media site in China that the increased marketing has been clear since the sanctions from the United States were instated.
“Few Governments use social media influencers as well as China,” the analyst told this publication which may not necessarily be the truth…
The only issue with the cmpiagns is that Chinese residents really have little to no choice when it comes to imported agriculture. As the west distances themselves from Russia and China, Chinese residents specifically are having to choose Russian produce. The Chinese people are missing out on the beef from the United States and Australia and also the seafood from the U.S.
It is blatantly clear that the social media campaign is Russia looking to China’s enormous domestic economy to fill the void that has been created by the sanctions imposed on Russian due to their invasion of Ukraine.
