Chinese government mocks US response to coronavirus in video
The Chinese government is mocking US efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in a new video that stars typically the Statue of Liberty made involving Legos.
A video entitled âOnce Upon a Virusâ was posted this 7 days to the local Twitter accounts involving both the Chinese embassy in France and the state-run China Daily newspaper.
The cartoon short depicts what the Chinese describe as the USâ? horrible response to fighting the coronavirus.
The video shows some sort of Chinese warrior from 2, 000 yrs ago, also made of Legos, and the Statue of Liberty arguing about the deadly contamination â? with a Scott Joplin-esque piano rag playing in the backdrop.
The animation lays out there a version of events powerfully favorable to the Chinese and even critical of the Americans.
âWe discovered a new virus,â the warrior proclaims.
âSo what?â the statue replies.
âItâs dangerous,â the warrior responds.
âItâs only a flu,â the statue shouts back again.
âWear a mask,â says the warrior
âDonât wear a mask,â says the statue.
The video is designed to show what the Chinese say will be the failure of the US response to the virus.
Lady Libertyâs last line: âWe are always correct, even though we contradict ourselves.â
The warrior hurls one additional insult before a red window curtain falls: âThatâs what I love best about you Americans, your consistency.â
