Don't be deceived by the deceivers in this deceptive ad!

While "Made in Taiwan" is indeed a great choice for quality, most of these people don't seem to love Taiwan, but they're trying to trick you into thinking they do. Look at who they are (in order of appearance):

1. Hsieh Chen-wu (謝震武) appears in commercials which refer to China as "the mainland" and even one supporting ECFA!

UPDATE: Less than two weeks after I posted this video, it looks like Hsieh is being pushed as the new Government Information Office (GIO) minister under the anti-Taiwan/pro-China Ma government (party-state):

How ya like *them* apples?!
[/update]

2. Patty Hou (侯佩岑) is a former Era News anchor who still works for Chinese KMT-affiliated media. The song "我愛台妹" contrasts her with "local girls (Taimei)."

3. Hu Ting-ting (胡婷婷) is the daughter of Taichung Mayor Jason Hu (胡志強) from the Chinese KMT (中國國民黨).

4. Ethan Ruan (阮經天) is an actor-model. I don't know about his politics.

5. Chan Yi-yi (詹怡宜) is an anchor for 100% Chinese-owned TVBS (BS-TV).

6. Although she performs in Taiwanese opera, Sun Tsui-feng (孫翠鳳, the one on the left) -- whose father Sun Gui (ph) (孫貴, born 趙鎖會) was born in Tianjin, Hebei, China -- used her "Taiwanese" identity to campaign for China-lovin' Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九, AKA 他「馬」的). She also does ads for Far EasTone (遠傳電信股份有限公司), a company owned by PRC telecommunications company China Mobile (中國移動通信). (The one on the right is Olympic taekwondo athlete Su Li-wen [蘇麗文], whose political affiliation is unclear.)

Any questions?

Here's another MIT ad by the same people that are in this ad. Most of what they say within is quite true; however, the real question is "Why don't they oppose Chinese products at the same time?" (No need to answer that. It's because they profit from China!):
