The “Joint Heart” video documents the event that took place at Times Square on December 2nd, 2017. Distinct from a traditional tourist promotional video, “Joint Heart” is refreshing and joyful, and continuously captured and transmitted the vibrant energy from the event to the world. The video has been launched on both Vimeo and YouTube. Please share the link https://vimeo.com/261000520/b1ed45bf91, https://goo.gl/JBThVJ and introduce Taiwan to a larger audience.
