Painted Pigs, Knock-off KFC, Fake Coca-Cola, Copied Carriers: Is Anything Real in China Anymore?

In recent online footage, a man spray paints a small white pig into a black one. 
A rural woman is also captured painting a white pig black. 
Why this peculiar trend? The rationale is simple: in China, black pork is significantly pricier than its white counterpart, and black piglets command a higher price as well. Some farmers, driven by profit motives, are resorting to using hair dye to paint white pigs black for sale.
