In the new work, the Jiu Society has continued to “tell” Shenzhen in their own unique way. “JoJo Dog TV Shopping Channel” borrows the panic marketing segment of TV shopping ads to show the urban and rural people’s longing for material life in a humorous and poisonous way. Ad adhering to the “based in Shenzhen, mainland China” strategy of development in the global market integration, e-commerce background, the most primitive way to recall the past, the ups and downs of madness and vanity.
