Chinese Billionaire Sells 8 Million CANS Of Fresh Air

Check out the raw footage of choking smog in Beijing.

Billionaire Brings Fresh Air To China - In A Can

China's Chen Guangbiao, the eccentric philanthropist known as much for his wacky charitable endeavors as for his generous humanitarian deeds, is reportedly making a killing in his "canned fresh air" business venture.

Chen, believed to be one of China's richest individuals, recently began selling canned fresh air in response to Beijing's ever-worsening air pollution problem.  Offered in a variety of flavors, such as"pristine Tibet" and "post-industrial Taiwan," the air is being sold for about 5 Chinese Yuan ($0.80) a can.

Though Chen's idea was initially seen by some as an outlandish publicity stunt or a mere novelty, it appears that his promise of fresh, clean air has become irresistible to many urbanites, wrapped this week in an unusually thick blanket of toxic smog.

I thought this was a Spaceballs joke ("Perriair").

Nice one Pitch. It's pretty brilliant marketing and shows the level of consumerism in China. I was amazed at the raw video of daily life fighting the smog. I can't imagine it would be safe for children in that environment. Something will have to give because it will only get worse for China as industrialization continues on a massive scale.
