While some netizens praised the story, others felt cheated for the home decoration advertisement afte
r the video. Jiang Luxian, a lawyer from Chengdu, Sichuan province, said the advertisement probably violates relevant provisions of the A
dvertising Law, and the creativity of “sharing father” is also improper for public order and traditions.
Oppein, the creator behind the promotion, however, said on social media that
it hoped everyone would pay attention to the lack of father figures, and return to the family for love.

The city of Shanghai has become the first local government to answer the call of the central gove
rnment to promote automobile consumption by providing subsidies, since 10 mi
nistries and commissions of the country released six major methods of promoting car sales in January.
The official WeChat account of the Shanghai Municipal Government announced yesterday it will launch a car trade-i
n program, encouraging car owners to trade in their vehicles for new gas-powered cars complying with State-VI emi
ssions standards or new energy vehicles, according to a report by the 21st Century Business Herald.
The government will provide a subsidy of 10,000 yuan ($1,489) for a trade-in gas-powered
vehicle and 15,000 yuan for a trade-in new energy vehicle, the announcement said.
China’s automobile market saw a sales decline in 2018 for the first time
in 28 years, with passenger vehicle sales slumping for 10 consecutive months from last y
ear to March, according to the China Passenger Car Association. As the central government halved subsidies for new energy
vehicles this year, the promotion of car consumption depends more on local governments and enterprises.
