Chinese folk music X Michael Jackson dance!

The dancer, Sun Honglei is actually a very talented and popular actor in China right now. This video dated back to the 80s or 90s when all the western stuff first came into China. Such mix won’t happen in China right now, I guess.

  1. can you please cite what your sources are? anyone can say “several major forum and social networks” when they don’t provide links for anyone to verify them. if you’re going to provide youtube copies of youku and tudou videos, at least include the original youku and tudou links. we can at least check the views and comments on those to get an idea of how viral they are.

    1. Thanks for yoursuggestion ugh. These videos are posted and reposted for many times so it is very hard to get a view count. I will try to provide at least anumber or one sourcenext time.

      1. youtube, youku and tudou all provide the number of views and other statistics on their video pages. a viral video may have different copies with different view counts but finding one makes it easy to find the others and usually one of them has more views than the others because it came first and was viewed the most.
