Apparently, these photos were recently taken in Beijing. However, it isn't known who this couple is or what the hell is going on. Well, save for the part about running naked in public with an inflatable friend. We got that part.

According to The South China Morning Post, the images are all over Chinese social networking sites and are going viral.

One Chinese blogger wrote (via SCMP), "Is this a real-life Temple Run?" This, of course, is a reference to the popular smart phone game Temple Run; in it, an explorer steals an idol from the temple and must outrun the foes in hot pursuit. Guess the treasure here is a blow-up doll?

Some were amused, but others were more cynical about what was going on. "It must be some kind of publicity stunt," one individual wrote online in China (also via SCMP). Or maybe this was a kind of performance art?


Whatever it is, look at that guy run.

And run!
