Ai Weiwei does Gangnam Style (really)

Update 26/10: The clip below has now been blocked in China. 

While Korean pop sensation Psy was teaching UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon how to do the Gangnam Style dance, Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei was at work in his Beijing studio mastering the moves himself.

But Ai being Ai — China’s most noted dissident — this parody of the viral tune came with his own touch.

The video uploaded was titled “草泥马style” (“Grass Mud Horse style”), the popular Chinese internet meme that is a play on words of, excuse my French, “fuck your mother”, which netizens use to evade censors.
