It isn’t by accident the video received widespread attention. The clip was filmed and released on short video platform Douyin, a place where Chinese mayors and magistrates go live to promote and sell local products.

Since the launch of her account this past May, the 41-year-old official has become a celebrity on Douyin. To date, she has hosted 140 live stream sessions and helped sell local products with a total worth of more than 15 million yuan (over 2.28 million dollars).
