bbc.com – Chiyai – A Taiwanese funeral featuring 50 pole dancers has become the talk of the Chinese internet this week. Videos of the funeral procession, which took place on Tuesday, have been circulating online showing skimpily-clad women gyrating on top of jeeps in the southern city of Chiayi. The funeral was for local politician Tung Hsiang, who died last month.
His family said they wanted to honour Mr Tung, who loved “having a lively fun time”, local media reported. The procession, featuring the convoy of colourful jeeps blasting loud music, brought traffic to a standstill in the city centre.
