ColbertNation fan Dystopia is NOW! received this Chinese property advertisement featuring a caricature of none other than our own Stephen Colbert, from fellow ColbertNation member Michael who currently resides in China. He says, “all the Colbert fans on the chinese blog-sphere are demanding Stephen ranting this out!!!!!! Will you pass this on to the crew.”
Chinese Hubster and regular Lurker Lezi (and FNJer Zeo New) were kind enough to translate the advertisement’s slogan: “Living in a big house won’t only be the right of the 1%!”
We here at the Hub are lucky enough to have a small Chinese following, but did you know that ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ are actually very popular in China? Aside from obtaining the show through Torrents and Downloads, there is an active Chinese FanBoard, a large contingency of fans on the Chinese version of Twitter Weibo.com, and even a man named Mr. Gu (and many others) who have dubbed a number of American talk show sketches, including ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ into Chinese.
To all of the Chinese Hubsters out there 欢迎!!
** Update: A big thanks to Hubster Lushi for sending in these links to some of the Chinese TDS and TCR fansites. The pages can be translated into English using the Google Translate add-on:
