Sex and the City: Beijing edition

Hehe, that might be a bit of false advertising on my part. So technically Sex and the City isn’t coming to Beijing, though the movie version came out this May will undoubtedly show up in the Beijing pirated-DVD stalls.

No, what I’m talking about now are the “Sexy Beijing” videos that have been absolute hits with the expats. I myself lived off them this summer while working in Beijing. The series is a parody of Sex in the City, but set in Beijing, with a bumbling–but endearing–American expat substituting in for Carrie Bradshaw. The opening sequence alone is worth the watch.

Here are two. The first is about romance in Beijing.
The second is on English language in Beijing (absolute hilarious bit about the Chinese fascination with awkward American names)
