Bizarre Chinese Contemporary Opera?

Post by ZJH » Wed Feb 02, 2011 11:42 pm

So this has become one of my housemates' favorite songs, and I have to say, it is one of the most bizarre things I have ever seen, yet it is so catchy that I can't stop thinking about it. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, "Tan Te".

Er... that link is to something that appears to be a comedy skit. I couldn't really identify any songs. :?

What's even more ridiculous about this is that this song is insanely popular in Taiwan and mainland China. Ahhhhhyouuuuuu, ahhhhhhhyouuu ehhhh!
