After seeing this video and reading the story behind it on ChinaHush, we have to admit we don’t understand China’s censorship methods at all. This video was originally a music video from popular Taiwanese pop stars S.H.E. called “Zhong Guo Hua,” or Chinese Language: instead of praising the merits of China’s history and rise like the original, this version lays waste to all of the advances of modernity in very direct and scathing fashion. The mind blowing part is that the government not only sanctioned the song with the new lyrics, it used the song for questions on the gaokao earlier this month, prompting confusion and anger from students as well as netizens. In any case, the video has since been taken off the major internet portals, so this one requires a VPN to watch.
