A Revolutionary Song: “In The Name Of The Father Remix”

A music video created by a group of netizens called 搬运9课 has recently been widely circulated online due to its very thundering (雷人) effect. 

In the video, Taiwanese pop music singer Jay Chou’s song “In The Name Of The Father 以父之名” is artistically remixed with scenes from a revolutionary model play (样板戏). A full translation of the lyrics can be found at a Jay Chou fan site.

A similar remix of Jay Chou’s “Ninja” was also circulated earlier on the web with the same scenes. According to Danwei, the scenes are actually from the Long March Suite (长征组歌), an opera first performed in 1965.
