Jaycee Chan’s Viral Video Game Attracts 60 Million

So what exactly is "The National Search for Jaycee?" Everyone knows where the son of martial arts superstar, Jackie Chan, really is - under arrest for "providing shelter for others to abuse drugs", according to the Beijing police. Then why are 60 million app users involved in a 'national search'?
That is because the hunt is like an electronic maze puzzle! "The National Search for Jaycee" is just a trendy video game on the Chinese WeChat app market since last Tuesday. It has cashed on the unexpected and unwanted 'fame' that Jaycee got after being arrested for drug dealing.
The game shows his face 'lost' in a collection of 25 shots of Kai Ko, another Taiwanese actor. Users are so excited about the 'spot the face' jumble that in spite of understanding the addiction, they keep logging in, according to BBC.
Last Thursday, the 31-year-old got copped by the Beijing police, who found 100 grams of marijuana in his home. He was detained, along with 23-year-old Taiwanese actor, Kai Ko. Both were tested positive for the drug.
The Beijing police has taken strict action against anyone involved in drug dealing, including famous personalities. Many Chinese stars had been arrested in the "people's war" against narcotics. The concern has been on the rise for the past four decades. Drug dealing is reportedly conducted even online.
Jaycee's shocked Hollywood actor-father, Jackie Chan, admitted in his microblog that he was "ashamed" and "sad." "Regarding this issue with my son Jaycee, I feel very angry and very shocked," he wrote. "As a public figure, I'm very ashamed. As a father, I'm heartbroken."
He agreed that Jaycee Chan would have to face the consequences of his actions, but added that he would join his son and they would face it together. "Jaycee and I together express our deep apology to society and the public," he added.
