Gangnam Style with Chinese Characteristics

The following post by Gangsong Samha (港怂萨沙) was deleted from Sina Weibo sometime before 2:57 p.m. on November 17, 2012. The post shares a photoshopped image of Hu Jintao, Wen Jiabao, Xi Jinping and other top Chinese leaders dancing to “Gangnam Style,” the popular dance song by South Korean pop artist PSY. The images of Chinese leaders are carefully managed by propaganda leaders, and the suggestion that they would dance in formation and shake their hips is certainly unwelcome. Gangsong Sasha currently more than 131,000 followers, according to numbers from Sina Weibo. [More on deleted posts at the WeiboScope Search, by the Journalism and Media Studies Centre].
