Chinese propaganda of the day



22 April 2014 11:40

China's state owned aerospace and defence manufacturer AVIC has just released a music video apparently marking the 65th anniversary of the PLA Navy. It looks like China's new aircraft carrier, though far from operational, is already coming in handy as a PR tool.

Now, I don't want to fall into the CNN trap of mocking foreign ways, so let's just say that, for Western media consumers who grew up with Top Gun and have since seen the visual style copied and endlessly parodied, this clip feels just a tiny bit dated.

If any readers out there can translate the lyrics of the song, please get in touch.
