Show Luo impersonates salesperson for a day

Earlier this year, Show Luo earned a spokesperson role for Manhattan Portage, an American-based company and makers of New York messenger bags. The Taiwanese entertainer's recent position for Manhattan Portage marks the first time that the internationally renowned messenger bag brand cast a spokesperson from a Chinese Mandarin-speaking country. For his spokesperson gig, Show was required to travel to Tokyo several months prior for various commercial shoots, which exposed the popular star to near-freezing temperatures while dressed lightly. Despite being exposed to the cold elements while being under-dressed, Show continued to express content and maintained his professional composure. The famous singer/actor expressed, "Prior to the (commercial) shoot, I wished to show off a different interactive style with the bag. And before we got down to business, I especially wanted to first adopt a male look that was different from (the stereotypes of) studying and doing homework."

In addition to filming the commercial ads for the company, Show also made a secret visit to Hong Kong in order to help advertise the bags in the branch stores located there. During his visit, Show took on the role of a salesperson as he demonstrated the different functions of each of the various models of the messenger bags, as well as teaching customers the quality differences between the brand's bags and counterfeit versions. The sales manager for the branch store visited by Show smiled and stated that the Taiwanese entertainer was more professional than their salespeople, and also wished that the pop star could help them out by becoming a permanent fixture of their sales team.
