Squeamish Video Shows Laowai Stealing Girl from HK Boyfriend in Lan Kwai Fong

Posted: 05/15/2014 11:42 am

It’s surely happened in bar districts all over Asia, but now it’s been caught on tape: a brazen laowai picking up a Chinese girl from right under the nose of her boyfriend.

The video was shot this past weekend in Hong Kong’s notorious Lan Kwai Fong bar district, not a locale known for the virtuous. It opens with the girl sitting with her boyfriend (although the exact nature of their relationship is being debated) along a railing, and the foreigner slowly moving in. It ends with him taking her away from a clearly exasperated – and we’re quickly assuming – ex-boyfriend.

Not sure whether to berate the guy for his ineptitude and weakness or feel sorry for him, the video has stirred up all kinds of feelings in Hong Kong Golden, one of the city’s top forums.

It turns out the video was shot by a guy named David Bond, who is the other foreigner sitting along the railing. He styles himself as a professional pick-up artist and has traveled throughout Asia. Hong Wrong blog has this:

The man himself entered the debate on Reddit posting a screenshot of his ‘conquests’ folder on his PC. He also posted a sarcastic video response to those objecting to his use of supposedly ‘hidden cameras’. The incident has also spawned a blog and Facebook campaign page

It’s almost Chinabounder, redux.
