Business Insider

China is known for it's hilariously bad knock-off, be they accessories, technology, or even architecture.

And now we can add another imitation to the list: Dutch conceptual artist Florentijn Hofman's "Rubber Duck."

At least ten scaled replicas of the artist's creation have appeared all over China after the artist displayed his inflatable installation in Hong Kong last month, according to Reuters.

They have popped up in Zhejiang province, Henan province, Liaoning province, and Shanghai, among other places.
