This week, Rice critiqued an advert for Chinese SUV maker Haval.
He gave the ad a “zero”.
Rice says Haval has improved beyond all recognition; it’s cheap but far from nasty.

Rice reckons they can learn a thing or three from Samsung, which only took off globally once it started viewing itself as a marketer instead of a manufacturer.
