most hilarious thing ever:
I was just watching a documentary about Beijing’s preparations for the 2008 Olympics… besides the ground-breaking ceremonies and the construction of venues, they also had a whole bunch of people learn English. This is apparently a real big image thing for China – they want to appear more open to the world and all that. So they had this big old press conference with a bunch of people all dressed up in fancy suits and speaking English, soldiers in uniform sounding off in English, and so on. And how do they end the spot? With a musical number, naturally – everyone singing Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On“.
