From China Digital Times:
Dragon’s Laugh (龙颜大悦) is an online volunteer production group that puts together weekly mash-up videos to distribute online. In operation since June 2010, the group of over 300 volunteers has put together 39 videos. These videos have enjoyed wide popularity among netizens and have also been reported by official newspapers and TV stations all over the country, including; Beijing Evening News, Shanghai News Morning Post, and China Youth Daily. Their latest production provides the view from cyberspace of the recent NPC/CPPCC meetings, with the dialogue mostly coming from real comments posted online on Sina Microblog or other online forums. Put together, it provides a 15-minute overview of netizens’ views of the meetings. This video is currently banned from all video-sharing websites inside of China. The full video is below with English subtitles provided by CDT.
Our favorite quote?:
“[sigh] It’s hard to tell what disaster is worse, the earthquakes or the reporting.”
It’s a long video at 14+ minutes, but golden all the way through. An excellent way to update yourself on current events, controversy, and slang in China. Make sure you check the full CDT post for more background info and inside jokes!
