"Singapore Crazy Horse says topless show not sleazy"
The Singapore Crazy Horse, which will bring the famous French topless dance act to the city-state, is not just another nude show, but a classy act, its owner said.[link]
I just don't get it. If I ever want to see topless ladies, why the hell would I go to a topless show that proudly proclaims - 'We're not sleazy!'. What's the point?
Want to see naked ladies perform? Then say you're going to see naked ladies perform. Don't elevate it as art please.
Just because its ang-mo, and do some well-cheoragraphed moves = Art?
Or is it that, if you put the same act in a nice place, force a smart casual dress code for customers (to seive out the riff-raff), and charge a high price = Art?
But if you put the same act in some nameless dive in Bangkok, at $10/pax, we call it porn and exploitation of women.
Seriously, think about it. If we import a troupe of Thai Bartop girls and make a show out of it. Would it be allowed? But Paris Naked girls? Ok.
"just another nude show, but a classy act, its owner said"
Nude Show is nude show. Even if you put some dry ice effects, some fancy lighting is still nude show. If I wrap shit in gold, its still shit right?
WaitAMinute..I'm inspired. I think I've come up with a great business idea:
I'll sell freshly laid dung, served on the finest Wedgewood Bone China. In a superbly restored Shophouse in Chinatown. All patrons must wear formal clothing. And minimum bill is $100 per pax. (Because people think expensive = good)
All waiters/waitresses in my establishment are all trained, and Angmo. (Because some people think Angmo = high class)
No.. of course I won't say I'm selling shit.
I'm calling it 'Le Crap du Provence', and say it's imported from France. You know how Singaporeans get taken in by fancy foreign sounding names and imported goods.
Good idea? Same idea as Crazy Horse, just different products.
