crazy clouds

4 09 2009

Those wacky bureaucrats at the Chinese Ministry of Defence! I don’t know,  not satisfied with hollowing out islands in the South China Sea to build secret Thunderbird naval bases, or reverse engineering several different jet plane technologies to make one cut-and-shut that doesn’t quite work, they’ve decided to stretch the remit of the PLA (Peoples Liberation Army) to encompass entertainment for bored dignitaries. The PLA have been training hard to perfect a number of choreographed song and dance routines, executed in colourful costumes. Here they are singing their version of The Weathermen’s It’s Raining Men, in a subtle little clouds-and-sky patterned camouflage. Sweet.

So, what would you do with two and a quarter million troops, a growing defence budget and no enemies? Party, of course!

Thanks to T. Zeng and ICUS for the tip.
