Earlier this week an image of two street cleaners went viral on Chinese social media after netizens took the photo and created a whole series of image stories to go along with it.

In the original image, two street cleaners held up a sign asking young people to buy fewer fireworks, so that they could return home earlier to celebrate the upcoming Spring Festival. The image was met with a multitude of reactions but took off once a netizen uploaded an image of a broom vendor with a similar message photoshopped onto the image.
