Boss Forces Students to Get Naked, Streak in South China

Have you ever been trailed by one of those people that hang around outside malls with a stack of flyers promoting gym memberships? You know the guys: despite the language barrier and your obvious disinterest, they walk with you for a block using key words like ‘gym’ and ‘pool’ and only give up when you cross the street. If you’ve ever wondered why these flyer folks are so persistent, we have a story for you…

On the evenings of August 3 and 4, a Guangzhou college student surnamed Huang and several of his schoolmates were ordered by their sales manager at a Dongguan-based gym to take off their clothing and run around outside the building the gym is located in, according to Guangdong TV.

In a video shot on August 4, two young men can be seen stripped down to their underpants while surrounded by colleagues outside the gym (pictured above). The reason behind the public strip show? According to Huang, if a salesperson failed to strike a deal in a two-day period, the individual would be required to run around naked outside the fitness center.  

In an audio recording captured by one of the students, another sales manager asks a salesman to strip off his pants, adding that he didn’t feel ashamed when ordered to run naked when he was a salesman.

Mr. Ou, a sales manager at the gym, denied issuing such a punishment during an interview with Guangdong TV, stating that “the streaking was merely a bluff.”

Huang was not on contract with the Dongguan gym and was supposed to be paid RMB1,700 – plus commission – from the fitness center. Unfortunately, compensation was never provided to Huang and the Labor Supervision Department of Dongguan Human Resource Bureau has since gotten involved to demand the gym pay all the students in full.
