Comments on Beijing subway jam music video

this rocks!Classic!

in beijing subway station.wow.i wonder what's others reaction toward this.

and btw,who plays the role of blue man:)

More of the same: western man jumping, gyrating and playing air guitar ad nauseum for the mildly amused Chinese masses. Too bad a more colourful subway crowd couldn't have been found -- the tedium of the video could have been lessened with some better background.

Still, the video was shot it in Beijing: cool, in, hot, trendy. This must be a plus for the production. Mind you, Beijing is still woefully empty. For those who enjoy jumping, gyrating and humping subway poles, more colourful places do exist around the world (then again, the locals probably won't applaud such tired behaviour).

I thought the song and video completely sucked.

No value whatsoever.

Headaches.

wow

Looks like he overdosed on stinky dofu...

+ David Moser on Mao impersonators (2004.10): I first became aware of this phenomenon in 1992 when I turned on a Beijing TV variety show and was jolted by the sight of "Mao Zedong" and "Zhou Enlai" playing a game of ping pong. They both gave short, rousing speeches, and then were reverently interviewed by the emcee, who thanked them profusely for taking time off from their governmental duties to appear on the show.
