Many people have been sharing a video of the new Shanghai Disney robot dancer on microblogs and social media. It shows an amazing dance by a new robot at the Shanghai Disneyland.
Unfortunately, this is yet another hoax. Let us share with you the truth, so you can help stop the spread of this fake news.
The Shanghai Disney Robot Dancer Hoax
Here is the video that countless people have been sharing on social media and their microblogs. It is paired with a short explanation in both English and Chinese.
The Classical dancer in this video is not a real living person but a newly constructed robot!
The video, a product of Shanghai Disney, is only a five minutes show but it would take more than four hours queuing up to purchase a ticket which costs 499 yuan per person .
The robot is entirely Chinese made and its technical level has surpassed those of Japan. This video is indeed worthy of watching.
The Truth About The Shanghai Disney Robot Dancer
The agility of the “Shanghai Disney robot dancer” in the video which lasts over 4 minutes is amazing. The less gullible would point out that it is something one would only expect from a professional, and they would be right.
That is actually a video clip from the 4th CCTV dance competition that was posted in 2007. The so-called robot dancer is actually a professional dancer called Qin Xi, who performed the “Dream of a Spring Girl” dance for that segment of the dance competition.
The fake story also claims that the ticket to watch this performance costs 499 Yuan. That is actually the cost of an entry ticket to the Shanghai Disneyland when it first opened in February 2016.
Since 6 June 2018, it’s been priced at 399 Yuan (off-peak), 575 Yuan (peak) and 665 Yuan (peak holiday).
Why Would Someone Create This Fake Story?
With China’s aggressive foreign stance in recent years, it is not uncommon to see such fake stories being created and shared.
Some believe it’s part of a concerted attempt to burnish China’s image.
Others believe the many fake stories are being created to drown out the negative coverage of China’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative, and their aggressive moves in the South China Sea.
Whatever the reasons may be, it is our duty as global citizens to stop the proliferation of such fake stories.
