Five people have been arrested in connection with last week's sex video shot in the changing room of the Uniqlo flagship store at Beijing's Taikoo Li shopping area, according to the Associated Press.

The Japanese clothing retailer is still being investigated as to whether or not it instigated the video as a publicity stunt, and would face a fine of RMB 1 million if the allegation is found to be true. That's probably way less than they would have had to spend to buy enough advertising to garner the same amount of attention.

The arrests were essentially inevitable after the male participant and cinematographer of the sex act posted the video to his Weibo account. We're wondering about the math, though: her, him, and who are the other three? Gee, those Uniqlo changing rooms must be bigger than we thought.

Since the video was posted, streams of visitors have stopped in front of the Uniqlo to take photos and selfies. Because nothing says classy like snapping a picture in front of a venue now best known for a public sex act.
