Relax.  Maybe this is just the Chinese version of Up With People.

Wait, that's not good either.

"Starring ... patriotic rap group CDRev, known for their tunes targeting perceived enemies of the Chinese government, the cheery ballad urges listeners to attend the games..."

Sounds like innocent fun to me.

Its like they chose two people who could pronounce the "L" sound, but didn't care about their grasp of the rest of English.

Curious to see what happens when one of the athletes starts spouting off. They can't disappear them, and most of them aren't compensated enough to force them make a contrite apology video like that spineless twerp Cena did.

To be fair forced happiness seems to be less of a communist thing and more of an Asian cultural thing.   In Japan and Worst Korea workers are forced to sing daily happy songs about the companies they work for.   In China and Best Korea they do the same forced happiness except the happy songs are about the state.

Why is everyone so convinced this is a thing that will happen? Didn't happen for the summer games in China, didn't happen in Russia, it really just doesn't happen.

The athletes are there to compete in an event that is the summit of their career. They aren't going to fark it up to make a political statement that will change nothing.

That was in fifty years ago and they weren't protesting the host country. Throw some names out, which athletes do you see protesting China, in China?

I never said they were. Just wondering what host countries will do if/when it happens. You made it sound like protesting at the olympics just didn't happen. It does, all the time. I pointed it out and you narrowed your focus in order to continue arguing.

You're so itching for an argument you're putting words in my mouth. Why not just have the argument you clearly want to have with the version of me you've built up? I'm just going to ignore you. I'm not interested in this tiresome nonsense this early in the day. Have fun.

An example from 50 years ago doesn't really pass for "all the time"

They could have done the Its a Small World song done in repeats with each repeat doing a version in another language and accent so it seems to take forever to finish just like the English version.   That would curry world favor.

Why do the two main singers look like they are wearing someone else's face?  I'm getting the same uncanny valley thing that happens when looking at bad CGI.

Once upon a time Buddy A watched Buddy B's little girl of five or so for an afternoon. B later placed an angry call to A because B's little darling had been taught The Song That Never Ends.
