Glass penis, or skyscraper? That is what everyone in Guangxi, China, is asking themselves as they drive past the new Guangxi New Media Centre.

If you think it looks like a penis here, just you wait until you see how a jokester conceived a video clip of fireworks shooting out of the tip….er….top of the tower:
Excuse me, mister architect? Exactly what were you thinking???
If you build it, they will come.

Though a spokesperson from the Guangxi Broadcasting and Television Network Company confirmed that clip was fake and a joke (reportedly fireworks will not be allowed on top of the building), the building’s phallic shape remains a great source of criticism internationally.
