The Third World War, during the European Football Championship 2012? The simbols of Europe, the Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Colosseum... totally destroyed. This disturbing Chinese video show destruction, fear, hate and terror... Why this? Football as WAR? An horrible show.

I wonder how the Chinese would react if the roles in this situation were reverse?

With Hip, slick and cool music playing while Beijing was being bombed and burning in the background....

You are right! I do find the video a little over-the-top to hype a sporting event. My guess, is if a country of Europe decided to make a video about Chinese landmarks and cities being destroyed? There would be outrage by China. Remember the fiasco that started when they were remaking that movie "Red Dawn," and in the remake the invading Army was going to be the Chinese? After the expected furor from the Chinese, the filmmakers decided to change the protagonists from the Chinese to North Korean soldiers.

'Red Dawn' remake: Is Hollywood 'kowtowing' to China?


But MGM is going a step further with its 2011 remake of Red Dawn, the 1984 thriller in which a team of kids attempt to fend off a Soviet invasion of the U.S. The studio originally filmed the new movie with Chinese villains (since there's no longer a Soviet Union) — but, in a last-minute switch, is digitally replacing the flags and uniforms to show the national symbols of North Korea, not China.


The movie has not even been released yet. Can't go stepping on China's toes because of their new found image as the big man on campus. Or so they think? Besides, there is already video and photos of China's destruction. Look no further than the archival videos and photos of Japan's invasion of China during WWII. That was not produced on some sound stage, or on a graphics program, but happened in real life. For example, I can recall the bombings of Shanghai, Nanking, and I even recall seeing a video of Japanese soldiers marching in the Forbidden City which is China's former imperial .quarters. They are just throwing their weight around, and other emerging powers have done it before.

There is another thread here about it.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

It is certainly strange and also worth noting that Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate is also in the ruined buildings.

So this video has nothing to do with the sporting event?
I'm sorry but China makes tons of War movies not to mention some very graphic Kung Fu movies [Which as an American] I would go to the theaters down in Chinatown in Los Angeles were I grew up with a Chinese American friend of mine and watch all kinds of Bad ones.

I was a kid and didn't care.

It's a form of media, the destruction of the world over a battle of soccer. I just don't see it as something more than that. And, pretty much look at it like all other media.

I can see the point of some claiming bad taste, but then again us Westerners just recently let out the Twilight series onto the world. Maybe I'm feeling guilt ridden.

I don't see that way.
I wont pander to them and try to play nice. I call it like I see it.
It's pretty blatant and over the top IMO.

But to each their own

Can anyone translate what the Character is singing about? I think that would be more interesting. He might be singing about how much the chinese love watching European Football Tournaments. The Chinese are currently spending a lot of money on there own national league. Bringing in big players from European teams. They can afford to pay the wages these players have become accustomed to.

You won't pander to TVB? Were you this mad about the world cup video?

To be honest the lyrics are a little on the extra side. If most people on this forum knew what it was saying they'd have a fit...

Mad?


I'm not mad. Why should I be? I'm not a fan of the sport. Frankly, I could care less who plays or wins. The OP posted the video and after reviewing it I asked a fair question. One shouldn't make assumptions.

Just a suggestion

It was a rhetorical question.

If China and the West are going to get into pissing matches the rest of us best ignore it so we don't have all those terrible movies made like in the 70s and 80s with all the "evil commie pinko red Russians"

Well whoever wins I hope is causes the most controversy.
I enjoy watching the spectacle of the aftermath.

Grew up watching Jackie Chan,Jet Li,Bruce Li, and Andy Lau watch a lot of netflix some good movies there there are clear difference between Holly wood and Chinese cinema.

Biggest thing i don't like is the hero always dies at the end.

Almost more entertaining than the game itself.
