Look Hu’s excited! After his visit to Chicago schools during his state visit to America in January, Hu Jintao invited 20 students from Walter Payton College Prep High School to visit his residence at Zhongnanhai in Beijing.
If you watch carefully, you can almost see papa Hu start skipping as he runs to embrace these kids (2:35). All the forced smiles and waving aside, I actually think he was genuinely thrilled to see them. And maybe that awkward approach over the bridge is supposed to suggest he’s simply sauntering over after doing the laundry or Roto-Rootering the guest bath?
The Chinese video is like nine times longer than the English version. No surprises there.
