Photo of an Ad in China

I took this photo at a restaurant in China. Is it just me or do the patrons depicted in this ad seem to be very very anglo? And if they are then wtf is up with the Mao suits? China uses white faces in their ads to give credibility to their products, maybe this is just another example of that phenomenon.
