Believe it or not, this is how China saleswomen promote gems, vacuum cleaners and even congee

Most jewellery brands market their products through classy advertisements and a sophisticated retail crew.

Shanghaiist has however found a Chinese jewellery store using a different approach.

Last week, a Chinese citizen journalism website uploaded a video featuring a topless saleswoman manning one of the counters in a jewellery store.

In the video, her breasts were covered only by a pair of diamond-shaped nipple pasties. The woman& also looked like she was rather uncomfortable.

The creepy video was reportedly shot at a Lukfook Jewellery store in the mainland, according to Oriental Daily.

The women were clad only in body paint, bikini bottoms and nipple covers, reported Shanghaiist.
