Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China

Liuzhou Style

I guess people may be a bit overloaded by what is now officially the most watched video ever on YouTube (which means the most watched video anywhere. 882,241,729 views a few minutes ago) I refer of course to Korean sensation, Psy’s “Gangnam Style“, known in Chinese as “江南 style” I thought it was funny the first couple of times I saw it.

It has prompted a number of “tribute” or parody videos from people from dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (艾未未), via Eton schoolboys and all the way through to (allegedly) Obama.

Here however is one you may not have seen. Liuzhou Style! Anyone who knows Liuzhou will get the humour and the locations.

The song is in Liuzhou dialect.

Here is the English translation and here it is in Chinese, Pinyin and English. These are PDF files.

    I’ll be sure to tune back in for the translation as my wife tells me I’m missing the humor in the lyrics… But I certainly recognize most of the locations…
