“The last Panda Revolution was created last year exactly this month and recently Panda Revolution is super hot and famous in China,” Xiaobaosg says. “Thanks to some evil designers/merchants from China who stole it and sold it as a new brand line in Bejing which is why you are seeing a smaller pic with a big clear watermark today. Probably this won’t help but hey… the show still needs to go on…”
