In China's phenomenal sci-fi blockbuster "The Wandering Earth," grossing nearly 4.68 billion yuan ($668.72 million) in the domestic market after its release during the 2019 Spring Festival, a robot's voiceover tells the driver of a giant futuristic truck: "Beijing No. 3 District's transport commission reminds you that roads are countless, but safety comes first. Unregulated driving will cause your loved ones to end up in tears." The quote quickly became popular after it was used by traffic police across the country and appeared on highway billboards. It went even further in penetrating all walks of life in society as the model of the sentence is renovated and widely used, for example, "health tips are countless, but sleep comes first."
