Chinese communist propaganda uses Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’

Since China recently passed Japan as the second largest economy in the world, it seems fitting that Jackson’s “Beat It” is the theme song for this edited Chinese Red Army propaganda video. It’s pretty hilarious to see the soldiers trying to break it down like MJ with Chinese grace. You must check out the the electric guitar solo (at 2:50) played with the traditional er hu!
