Wait. . . What?

I was reading something on a blog earlier today, when I noticed the following skyscraper advertisement:


Now, I'm no marketing guru, but why in the hell would Vonage choose the emblem from the Chinese flag for an advertisement? What are they trying to convey, exactly? I suppose it's possible they're trying to play up the 2008 Olympics, or something, but just generally speaking, it makes no freakin' sense.

Choose Vonage, and all your Marxist dreams will come true?

Is Vonage one of those internet phone dealies where you can call anywhere in the world for free?

If so, maybe the logic is, "Join Vonage and you can call China"?

Yeah, Vonage is a Voice over IP (VoIP) get-up, but are there really that many people clamboring to dial-up China? Why not a Japanese flag? Japan is, at least, kinda cool.
