Taiwan’s Man Whore

Why is Rob Schneider working for the tourism board of Taiwan? He's huge there:

Schneider’s breakout film Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo told the tale of a hapless fish-tank cleaner forced by economic circumstances into the wacky world of Man Whoredom. The film was immensely popular in Taiwan, netting four times the American per-screen average. Schneider headed to Taiwan to find the secret to this unexpected bit of overseas celebrity.  Translation, he says, may have had something to do with it. "The Taiwanese word for Man Whore (Nán jì ; 男 妓) is very funny. I watched the movie with a Taiwanese audience, and you’d see the words and the audience would laugh before the joke. It was just fantastic."
