Just how bad is the smog in China? Enough for a delivery of fresh mountain air

We’ve all heard (or seen) the smog of China, with thick blankets of pollution covering the entire city skylines across the country. But what happens when it gets too much? You send in fresh air, of course. A Henan-based travel company shipped 20 bags of air to Zhengzhou as ‘a special treat for residents’.

This bagged air comes from Laojun Mountain, about 120 miles away from the city, ‘and was brought as part of a promotional gimmick to show oxygen-deprived city residents what they’re missing’. Kinda clever, if not a little sad.
