    “Netizens thought Gaoshan’s Chinese is unbelievable”

    Big deal. My English is unbelievable.

    This is mediocre at all levels at best. Just another little punk thinking he is something special because has learned how to sing a couple of songs in Chinese. So awkward to watch.

    It might be a real gem but I didn’t activate the link – the internet is too boring. Is that top picture of a Westerner because he looks Chinese to me.

    Even high school kids know China is pussy heaven for white boys

    China foreign worshippers are making westerners sick, the Chinese want the whiteys to do all kinds of tricks to get a China girl.

  6. Chinawhisper says:

    He becomes famous because Chinese songs are seldom sang by foreigners. although China is stronger in econmy, but not strong in culture. Chinese like to see a foreigner who sing their songs. If this guy is a Chinese singing English songs, I am afraid he will not go viral on internet. Right?
