4 A Girl Who Is Willing to Share McDonald's With Me - Posted by a local group called Camera Ready, the video pokes fun at the exorbitant life of Hong Kong teens and the "Kong Girls" culture. Sometimes a cheap meal can also satisfy couples.

5 Never Want to Be Alone - The clip starts to go wrong when Timon Chu, a businessman, kicks into the classic Chinese pop duet out of tune.
