^ IF Hong Kong is anything like Hollywood, I wouldn't doubt those 3 people work for the advertising firm...

That Calvin Klein underwear ad should be removed from the hotel's facade right now.

I don't see what's wrong with the underwear ad.

If it was an incredibly hot female model similarly attired you wouldn't have any complaints. But because it's a man and you may be slighlty homophobic you want it down. Want about the 51+% of HK's population that are women? Surely the straight ones amongst them wouldn't mind seeing a scantily clad attractive man on the side of a building.

Yes, but if we pandered to every need of a woman, you know what happens next.

Actually I just did the calcluations and only 45.7% of HK's population is male. Meaning 54.3% are female.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel is the third building over 100 metres high to depart this life in Hong Kong The first two are the Furama Hotel and the Hennessy Centre. Are there any other 100+-metre buildings to be demolished in the future?.
