Police in Beijing have arrested 5 people over a sex tape filmed in a branch of the Uniqlo clothes shop, Chinese state media say.

A clip a couple having a quick romp in one of the dressing rooms of Beijing’s flagship Uniqlo store in Sanlitun was uploaded onto the interwebs, which quickly went viral and set the Chinese virtual world alight.

The sex video was leaked onto social media via WeChat (messaging app) and Weibo (China’s Twitter) and has since been viewed by millions of people, leaving Internet censors scrambling to take it down.

A bespectacled man, dressed in black from head to toe, is heard telling a naked woman to kiss him as he tapes their steamy session in the mirror. “Call me husband” and “Say we’ll be together” were a few of other phrases he uttered to her ear as piped music played in the background.

Media reports said the couple in the video were arrested on Wednesday (15th July), hours after the footage was published. China’s online regulator, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), said that distributing the footage was “against socialist core values” and called for online operators to help with the investigation.

“The police investigation has two main parts: who published this unsavoury video, and was it an example of hype by the business,” Beijing Television said.

China Daily reported that Uniqlo could face a fine of between 200,000 and one million yuan (£21,000-£103,000) and see its licence revoked if the video is found to be a publicity stunt.
