Film Ghosts with Shit Jobs

Film Imagines a Post-Economic-Collapse America Owned by China

In 2040, the economic collapse of the west is complete and the east is in full ascendance. North Americans now do the undesirable jobs to cater to wealthy Asian and Indian markets. A Chinese documentary show called Window On the World focuses a compassionate eye on these unlucky enough to have been born in the slums of Toronto in a special report entitled ‘Ghosts With Shit Jobs’. Oscar is a digital janitor, and has to manually cover up logos for copyright reasons in the future’s answer to Google StreetView. Gary and Karen assemble robot baby dolls for the children of the wealthy in Asia. Anton and Toph are spider silk collectors. Serina is human spam and makes a living by mentioning brands in casual conversation.

In 2040, jobs suck in a whole new way – ghostswithshitjobs

Here’s a trailer for a new film called “Ghosts With Shit Jobs,” which imagines a US after massive economic default, fully and completely owned by China in which Americans are doing odd jobs for China like hunting for silk and making robot babies.

In 2010, the political ad of a Chinese Professor paid for by “Citizens Against Government Waste” has certainly created quite a splash in the Asian American blogger and social media world.

There were angry responses posted online, and they said the ad was racist and xenophobic.

I don’t believe that the intention behind the ad was racist.

Here’s the Chinese Professor.
