Pizza Huh? StarButts? China plans counterfeiter mall!



China has confirmed itself as the 'king of counterfeiters' with the building of a new shopping centre dedicated to fake brands.

Some of the brand impostors at the mall in Nanjing, east of Shanghai, include a McDonalds look-a-like burger bar called McDnoald’s, a Starbucks-style coffee shop called Bucksstar Coffee, and a wannabe Pizza Hut called Pizza Huh.

City bosses are under pressure to ban the soon-to-be opened mall after pictures of the fake stores were leaked, causing uproar amongst angry consumers who feared they'd be ripped off.


Some of the best:

That was my first thought,
then that they could be sued.

Faking McDonalds doesn´t really surprise me at all. As long as they don´t use fake ingredients in their food...like fake eggs.

that reminds me of the South Park episode about the ladder to heaven. Only I think it was Japan, not China, that they were spoofing.

People will always buy Chinese stuff as its cheap, low quality (Mostly) and made by a workforce who have no rights over the money obsessed society we live in. I use to work in a two dollar shop in New Zealand where virtually everything came from China and some imitations include
Handbags with pictures of Britney Spears on them saying Briney Spares
A spoierman scrapbook with pictures of Spiderman on the cover
Prates of the caribbean pirate gear including a Jeck Sporraw doll that looked like Jack Sparrow.
Imitation Bratz dolls with a Bratz label on them, but the bad english gave it a way "This girl have passion for fashin" and another doll under the label "Most newest styles, latest styles made the truest way for you" and in big letters below the doll "All styles are freely selected by you" What on earth does that mean????

I think KLG or KLC may be Indonesian or Malaysian as Restoran is Bahasa for Restaurant.,and then as you look at the chicken its label says "Malaysia

I've heard that they used shreded cardboard, soaked in chemicals as a meat substitue
in their pork buns.

But is it really bootleg? Shouldn't a bootleg be a burger made by McDonalds that McDonalds felt shouldn't be released to the public?
