China: Back Dorm Boys

Bingfeng Teahouse points us to the blog (Chinese) of the Back Dorm Boys, the art students whose video lip-syncing a U.S. boy band has become an Internet sensation.



    I LOVE THESE GUYS!!! Hilarious!!! But actually they are very good. There lip syncing is very acurate and they stay true to their expressions throughout each song in the videos. Too bad I can’t read Chinese. I’d love to know what the comments below the picture of them holding the stuffed animals are about. I’ve read about them on other blogs. Cool that they got a commercial out of this.

    Wow. I am extremely impressed at what these young men have accomplished. They took their imaginations and did something productive as well as entertaining with it. They have been talked about in countless in blogs and have become representatives for their nation of China. They bring the hope that their culture has individualism spreading even in a nation with Communism. I hope that this will help mold the nation into a better world.

    These guys are great!!! I absolutely love them! They’re very good with their lipsynch, facial expressions and their dance movements. And I just love how they keep on singing while the guy in the background just keeps on doing what he’s doing. Never had so much fun. Keep on singing, boys!
