This LED billboard is the only way to see the sunrise in smoggy Beijing

This LED billboard is the only way to see the sunrise in smoggy Beijing | Grist

New York Times correspondent Edward Wong RTed this picture of a billboard in Beijing:


We've previously reported about Hong Kong's fake blue-sky backdrop for tourist photos, but Beijing has done them one better -- the ersatz sunset glows just like the real thing, and if it's video, as reported, you can even take fake tourist Vines and nobody will be the wiser! Just make sure to use a tight, tight zoom. Step back too far and it becomes clear that you're in a dystopian air pollution nightmare.
