We've had a few chuckles here in the Beijinger office Friday afternoon (Ed's note: not as rare as an occurrence as this makes it sound) and we thought we'd share this one with you.

This seven-minute video produced by Shanghai-based TMD Group takes an exaggerated but funny look at the differences between dating for Chinese couples and dating for Western couples. We won't spoil it for you, but it's a wide-ranging look at aspects of couplehood, including shopping (the Western woman finds herself alone in an empty store), meeting the parents (clearly it helps to be a golfer if you're a Westerner), and parenting, which doesn't look too stressful if you're Chinese. Well done, TMD, and have a great weekend everyone else!
