A copy of Beijing's iconic 'big pants' building has popped up in Henan Province

Netizens were quick to point out the resemblance between the recently erected structure in Zhengzhou and the CCTV headquarters in Beijing, commonly known as the 'big pants' building. 

Amazingly, this isn't the first copy of the 'big pants' in China, a building in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province has also been accused of being a knockoff of the famous structure. 

The CCTV building was named 'Best Tall Building Worldwide' by the Council on Tall Buildings and Habitat in November last year, despite being completely pants.
