Watch the Venezuelan military band welcome President Xi Jinping with a version of the Chinese national anthem so ear-rapingly awful it makes Chen Guangbiao’s “We are the World” look Grammy-worthy.
The purpose of Xi’s visit was to close several multi-million dollar oil agreements and reportedly “smash Western domination,” but it looks like the only thing’s smashed were the eardrums of everyone present. Seriously, they couldn’t have done a worse rendition if they played it on the washboard.
Naturally, the major ‘brass-suckage’ didn’t go unnoticed. Here are some of the netizen skewerings:
“I admire our leader and officials for being able to maintain their composures.”
“China should express vehement condemnation to Venezuelan government.”
“The orchestra band at my school can perform far better.”
