Pink Man on Tour (1998)

Pink Man performance by Sompong Thawee

The Pink Man, a symbol of conspicuous consumption and vulgarity, trundles along with his pink supermarket cart, chewing up the scenery, shopping for tourist attractions.
Like most tourists today, he travels not to learn but to consume: to collect exotic destinations, to shop, to show off, to stay in resource - wasting hotels that import more goods and services than they export.
The hotels get rich while the country goes into debt.

The Pink Man on Tour celebrates the Amazing Thailand campaign
- - the Thai government's tourism promotional drive to attract fast dollars by selling off our culture and natural resource
