Shanghaiist: More Ballads to the Grass Mud Horse (with Video)

The grass-mud horse (草泥马) meme has been spreading like wildfire over the Internet in China and shows no signs of banking.  Shanghaiist has collected three more original songs and videos of the mythical creature which has become the mascot for Chinese netizens’ defiance of official censorship online.

We’ve already reported on the current darling of the internets, the Grass Mud Horse (草泥马), last week. But after a bout of Youtube surfing over the weekend, we realized that we weren’t doing the almost religious fanaticism to this new meme justice. So we’ve included some more “Cao Ni Ma” ballads to lighten up your Monday morning.

First off, a girl sings about love relationships amongst the Grass Mud Horses. When Male and Gebi bred, they produced an offspring they named “法克泥马 (Fa Ke Ni Ma)”

Two other videos feature the grass-mud horse in a Chinese folk song sung by a children’s chorus accompanied by a full orchestra.
